Qatar seeks contractors for another stadium

09 June 2016

Deal covers 40,000-seat stadium and infrastructure

Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy has invited companies to express interest in the main construction package for a 40,000-seat stadium and precinct.

The committee says the project involves the construction and installation of main infrastructure, utilities, internal roads, civil and structural works, a utilities compound, a district cooling system, parking, shaded structures, landscaping and a Fifa-compliant training pitch.

Applicants must be joint ventures led by a Grade-A local contractor with an international partner.

The scheme is the latest stadium to be tendered in the country.

In May, the committee invited contractors to bid by 1 August for the deal to build the World Cup football stadium at Lusail.

The 80,000-seat stadium will be used for the final match of the 2022 football tournament. The tender documents say the maximum price for the tender is QR2.8bn ($769m). Construction work is scheduled to start in December.

Earlier in June, a joint venture of India’s Larsen & Toubro and the local Al-Balagh Trading & Contracting was awarded a deal to build the Al-Rayyan World Cup stadium in Qatar.

The 45,000-seat stadium will host group matches during the World Cup. The concept design was prepared by Germany’s Albert Speer & Partner (AS&P). The consultant is Denmark’s Ramboll and US-based Aecom is the project manager.
