Sacyr completes $139m Qatar development project

Leading Spanish building company Sacyr said it has completed a major project involving the development of a semi-urban zone spanning 1.52 million sq m in Bani Hajer area of Al Rayyan governorate in Qatar for €125 million ($139 million).

The project, which is the first contract awarded under the Local Roads and Drainage Programme sponsored by the Public Works Authority of Qatar, involved the provision of utilities services to more than 660 plots of land, four schools, five mosques and six retail areas, said the company in a statement.

Furthermore, a 101-km sanitation network was laid and five rainwater run-off tanks were built to prevent flooding, stated the company which completed the work in conjunction with Combined Group Company.

The project entailed the execution of several roads and streets running 29-km-long, including sections that range in width from 16 to 40 m, with a traffic circle and two intersections with traffic lights.

According to Sacyr, more than 120,000 tonnes of asphalt and 280,000 sq m of paving stones had been used during the construction.

The Spanish construction giant stressed that despite the fact that the project required more than 8.5 million man-hours, no serious accidents occured.

Sacyr, which also has other projects under way in this country, has included the Middle East among its targets for growth in the construction, industrial and water businesses, where it offers its experience and innovative capacity.

It has ongoing projects in Kuwait and Oman, and is also tendering for projects in the UAE and Jordan.-TradeArabia News Service
