Qatari Diar Vinci Construction (QDVC) has won a €264m ($337.8m) contract to design and build an underground car park and landscaped gardens in Doha.

The work will involve designing and constructing the car park with around 2,000 spaces and the landscaped gardens in front of the Doha Sheraton Hotel, which is located in the financial and diplomatic district of the West Bay area of Doha.

The landscaping work will cover a 73,000 square metre area and will involve building fountains, play areas and restaurants.

The contract will also include the construction of a maintenance depot and command centre for the future Doha light rail system, as well as three electricity substations. The construction of a cut-and-cover tunnel between the car park and the future Doha Convention Centre is also part of the project.

QDVC is a 51:49 joint venture company of local developer Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company (QDREIC) and France’s Vinci Construction Grand Projets.
