30 June 2010

Indian contractor will build amenities for first phase of Barwa City development

Local developer Barwa Real Estate has awarded a QR676m contract ($186m) to India’s Shapoorji Pallonji to build amenities for the first phase of the estimated QR4.89bn Barwa City development.

Shapoorji will build 13 buildings, which include a mosque, bank, school and a multi-purpose park.

The first phase of the development will consist of 6,000 residential units in addition to utilities and infrastructure features, which include a district cooling plant. In 2007, Germany’s Bilfinger Berger was awarded the contract to build the residences and community facilities (MEED 4:5:07).

US-based Aecom is the consultant.

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is currently tendering a contract to build peripheral roads around the Barwa City development.

The project is part of Qatar’s plan to invest $20bn on new roads and related drainage and infrastructure in the next five years (MEED 3:6:10).
