Aecom picked for Qatar stadium team

2 Jun 13 The Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee has appointed Keo as project manager and Aecom as design consultant for the 45,000-seat Al Wakrah Stadium.

“We are looking forward to working with our partners on Al Wakrah Stadium to construct an amazing sporting facility that both serves the local community and integrates with Al Wakrah’s fabric,” said Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee secretary general Hassan Al Thawadi.

The top-tiers of the stadium will be modular and the capacity of the stadium will be reduced to 20,000 following the tournament. The 25,000 seats removed will be donated for reuse in countries that require assistance in developing their sporting infrastructure.

Programme management consultant CH2M Hill will supervise both Keo and Aecom.

Keo is responsible for the overall management, strategy and implementation of the project. Aecom, in association with Zaha Hadid Architects, will work collaboratively with the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee, CH2M Hill and Keo throughout the design and delivery process to ensure compliance with design standards and sustainability requirements.
