A local/Turkish joint venture will sign stadium deal imminently

Turkish contractor Tekfen has released a statement on Turkey’s capital markets Public Disclosure Platform (KAP) saying that the company is set to sign an agreement for work on a World Cup stadium in Qatar.

According to the statement, a joint venture made up of Tekfen and Qatari firm Al-Jaber Engineering is set to sign an agreement with the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy to build the $342.5m Al-Thumama Stadium in Qatar, which is also known as the Fifth Precinct Stadium .

Located in Al-Thumama, the stadium will seat 40,000 people and will host matches up to the quarter-finals of football’s Fifa 2022 World Cup.

The consultant is the local Arab Engineering Bureau. The project manager is US-based Turner International Middle East.

In November 2016, Qatar appointed a joint venture of the local HBK Contracting and China Railway Construction Corporation as the main contractor for the Lusail Stadium.

The 80,000-seat stadium is the largest planned for football’s Fifa 2022 World Cup, and will be used to host the tournament’s final match.

US-based Turner International Middle East is the project management consultant.

The final stadium project, which is yet to be awarded is the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, also known as the Fourth Precinct. This stadium will be developed near to Hamad International airport in the Ras Abu Aboud area. The consultant is US-based Populous while the project manager is Turner International.
