A joint venture of J&P Qatar WLL, Conspel Qatar WLL, J&P‐Avax and J&P (Overseas) has been appointed as the main contractor for the Qatar Foundation World Cup stadium.
The project — to be located in Doha’s Education City — was awarded by Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC). The stadium will be able to accommodate 40,000 spectators, which will be reduced to 25,000 once the 2022 FIFA World Cup finishes.
The main-works contractor will be progressing with the schematic design, finishing the foundation works and securing a substantial portion of the structural steel for the super structure by the end of 2016.
SC secretary general Hassan Al Thawadi said: “We are pleased with the progress of Qatar Foundation stadium and are hitting our construction deadlines. With the main contractor now appointed we look forward to watching it grow from foundation level to full completion in 2019.
“Over the next four years we’ll be working closely with our new partners to ensure we deliver an outstanding, legacy-orientated stadium at Education City that will serve the community long after the last ball is kicked.”
The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2019.
