24 November 2009

Irish firm to complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing package

Ireland’s Mercury has won the QR280m ($77m) mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) contract on the Barwa Commercial Avenue project in Qatar.

In April, Germany’s Hochtief confirmed it won a construction contract on the Barwa Commercial Avenue scheme in southern Doha.

The mixed-use development forms the commercial centre of the Barwa City residential area, currently under construction, and consists of office and residential buildings with ground-level shops along an 8.6 kilometre avenue.

Hochtief provided pre-construction services on the project such as preparing land and outside fences (MEED 8:6:08).

Hochtief plans to complete the scheme in early 2012. The client is Barwa Real Estate Company.

In mid-November, France’s Bouygues confirmed it won the QR4.8bn main construction contract to build another Barwa project, the Barwa Financial District.

Bouygues’ three-and-a-half-year contract covers the construction of nine office towers between 18 and 52 floors, a five-star hotel, a retail shopping centre, a conference centre and 5,000 parking bays in the West Bay area of Doha. The total built-up area is about 695,000 square metres (MEED 2:10:09).

Bouygues will carry out the work in collaboration with Qatari contractors Al-Jaber Engineering and Midmac Contracting Company.
