Hill International has been selected by the Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC) to provide project management services for the construction of the Abraj Al Tahwiliya (QIMC Tower West Bay Project) in Doha, Qatar.

The project, with three mixed-use high-rise towers, will include a luxury 5-star hotel and residences, office and commercial spaces, five levels of retail area, and four basement levels of parking and back of house services.

The total area of development will be 120,000m², with the project’s towers reaching a height of 185m.

Estimated to cost QAR1.2bn ($329.6m), the overall project will be built by Redco Construction – Almana Company. The project has been designed as the centerpiece of the West Bay. The adjacent areas are set aside for landscaping.

The 29-storey residential tower will offer better views of the Corniche and the Bay. It will feature a wide range of amenities such as a spa, a gym and a swimming pool.

The second tower will consist of 23 floors for full office space. The third tower with 38 floors will be a luxury 5-star hotel.

The five-storey base will connect the three towers to each other and has been designed to host commercial activities such as shopping, dining and relaxation at the Corniche Street along with several parking spaces.

Hill International will support the project by providing construction management, contracts administration, project controls, document control, quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) support, and other Project Management services.

Hill vice president and country manager Karim Yazbek said: “We committed a team more than ready to help QIMC realize Abraj Al Tahwiliya as intended, on-time and on-budget.

“The Doha Corniche is a unique destination, one with national significance, and a key driver in Qatar’s tourism industry. This project represents a special opportunity to exponentially raise the profile of the Corniche even further.

“The Hill team understands these stakes, and has the right skills and experience to make the Towers a reality.”

QIMC CEO Abdulrahman Al Ansari said: “QIMC has a unique location on the Doha Corniche, and we are seeking to use this space better by constructing the towers in partnership with reputed international and local consultants.

“QIMC has so far participated in 20 industrial projects, most of them are in the production stages in various industrial sectors, including petrochemical, chemical, construction and food. In addition, number of new projects are in the stage of incorporation.”
