Our associate construction business in Qatar, Gulf Contracting Company (GCC) was awarded a £325 million contract in joint venture with ALEC Qatar to deliver the main works for Doha Festival City, the country’s largest ever mixed-use retail and leisure development.
Set to open in September 2016, Doha Festival City will feature a 250,000 square metre mall housing over 550 stores, 85 restaurants and cafes, car showrooms, a hotel and convention centre. It will also include state of the art cinemas, a snow park and an 8,000 space car park.
Phase 1 of the 430,000 square metre Doha Festival City development saw the opening of Qatar’s first Ikea store. Phase 2 comprises the enabling works to basement and ground floor levels, and Phases 3, 4 and 5, the remaining mall construction and finishing work.
The JV was previously awarded the mall's substructure works contract for the construction of basement and ground floor levels.
