Dohaland clarifies on firm's withdrawal
Doha, September 22, 2010
Dohaland, the company behind the Heart of Doha project in Qatar, has issued a clarification on a report in TradeArabia regarding Aedas, a leading architecture practice, withdrawing from the project.
Dohaland said in a statement: 'Dohaland is currently working with some of the world's most renowned partners. We are very proud of the long-term relationship we have built with them and value their commitment and contribution to the success of our projects.
'In our strive for excellence and commitment to deliver to our customers, we continuously monitor performance to ensure that these commitments are met. It is with great regret that we have reached an end to the contractual relationship with the specific consultant which relates to agreed performance criteria rather than any commercial considerations,' said the statement.
The Heart of Doha Project is an ambitious urban renewal scheme that covers approximately 35 hectares in Doha’s city centre.
The $5.5 billion project aspires to regenerate the historic core of the city and to act as a stimulus for future wider city renaissance. - TradeArabia News Service
