“Drake & Scull Construction (DSC) will enable Drake & Scull International PJSC to cover the complete value chain of the construction industry in Qatar and will optimise our exposure to the residential, commercial, education, healthcare and infrastructure sectors,” said DSI CEO Khaldoun Tabari. “We aim to import our regional experience and acquired operational and technical expertise in turnkey execution of high rise towers, hotels and residential schemes, infrastructure works, construction management, inspection and quality control to complement our established MEP and water and power divisions.”

Drake & Scull Construction managing director Saleh Muradweij said: “Qatar has been witnessing unprecedented economic growth in recent years, and several key factors such as its favourable investment climate, strong government support and winning the 2022 World Cup hosting rights have added impetus to the country’s ambitious growth plans.”
