The contract has been won through its newly acquired specialist company Drake & Scull International Qatar (DSQ).
DSQ will immediately start the complete supply, delivery, installation, testing and commissioning of the MEP package and will complete and hand over the project in November 2012.
“We have reinforced the management team in DSQ and upgraded our operational capabilities to meet the rising demand for the planned 2022 world cup associated infrastructure, commercial and residential developments .The construction sector is well developed across all industries, with a healthy level of competition for large contracts. We see a progressive increase in tendering activities and we expect to witness an increased impetus in project announcements in the market. ” said Khaldoun Tabari, CEO of DSI.
“The ongoing construction projects in Qatar are ensuring solid activity levels for firms in building material, construction and engineering sectors,” said DSI-MEP managing director Mark Andrews. “The diverse experience of DSQ and its specialization in the MEP field will enable it to service all construction segments. The huge influx of international contractors to the Qatari market stimulates strong competition and is raising the quality standards in the MEP industry. The resurgence of project financing and the availability of credit will eventually accelerate the life - cycle of infrastructure projects. We are constantly investing in the development of sustainable engineering techniques and technologies to deliver the best international quality standards.”
