Doha, February 23, 2014
Causeway, one of the leading suppliers of software for the built environment, said it has won a contract from Ashghal, the Public Works Authority of Qatar, to supply cost planning and automated measurement software for CAD drawings and BIM.
A leading UK-based firm, Causeway said the company will be delivering its Cost and Programme Management software (Cato) to Ashghal for helping its internal consultants create, monitor and track a comprehensive internal rates database based on information supplied by consultants and contractors for work issued by the authority.
The automated measurement software will allow the organisation to quantify measurements, rates and check estimates supplied over the coming years, stated the company.
Ashghal, set up in 2004, is responsible for the planning, design, procurement, construction, delivery, and asset management of all infrastructure projects and public buildings in Qatar.
Adhering to the Qatar National Vision 2030, the authority contributes to the economic and social development of Qatar, with projects valued at over QR100 billion to be delivered within the next five to seven years.
Abdulsamd Al-makei, the manager of Engineering Business Support at Ashghal said: "We operate a powerful model of strategic outsourcing and partnership with world leading establishments and the Causeway solution was chosen after thorough assessment of the products and a rigorous tender process."
"We are looking forward to working with Causeway in implementing the software and using it to maximum benefit," he stated.
Causeway executive VP Paul Madeira said: "Ashghal's contribution to the state's huge infrastructure development is pivotal to the future of Qatar. We are delighted to have been selected by their Tender Committee and Head of Contracts to support their mission."-TradeArabia News Service
