Ashghal, the country’s public works authority, awarded Aecom the US$80m (£50m) framework contract for southern Qatar as part of a larger US$14bn programme to develop the city’s infrastructure, local roads and drainage.
Aecom will provide services including data collection, planning, coordination, option studies, design and construction supervision.
“We are delighted to expand our involvement as visionaries and thought leaders in Qatar, as well as continue our partnership with Ashghal to improve the country’s infrastructure,” said Aecom chairman and chief executive officer John Dionisio. “This is an exciting time for Qatar and its residents. Our talented team of transportation experts takes great pride in collaborating to solve the challenges that a project of this scale and complexity will demand.”
Work on the contract is set to begin immediately.
