GHD offers design, engineering services for Doha project

DOHA, May 10, 2018

Leading global professional services company GHD is providing design and engineering consulting services for the masterplan and approval stage of Le Petit Paris, a mixed-use development located at the Lusail Entertainment City in Doha, Qatar.

A model of the project was recently presented at the CityScape Qatar real estate exhibition.

The Parisian-style development will offer a total built-up area of 170,000 sq m, including 10 luxury serviced apartment buildings, a four-star hotel and two standalone restaurant buildings with an underground carpark, said a statement from GHD.

Shadi Saliba, the manager for the Architecture group GHD, said: "To achieve the client’s vision for a vibrant urban neighbourhood, our team proposed a land use strategy that will enhance the area, forming a transition zone between the nearby Place Vendôme, currently under construction, and the waterfront boulevard of the Lusail Marina."

The masterplan creates a dynamic and stylish urban precinct, drawing on Neoclassic rules to link two opposite squares and a connecting high street, stated the top official.

Saliba said the recreational landscape areas will be provided in the form of pocket parks and the marina-side boulevard.

"Architectural features on the proposed buildings and carefully designed street furniture will bring an ambience of historical Paris into the new district of the Qatar capital. The Al Asmakh Properties
project is scheduled for completion by 2020," he noted.

Bassam Halabi, the country manager for Qatar, at GHD said: "We are proud to work on this iconic development. GHD has operated continuously in Qatar since 2000, earning the continued trust of our clients and demonstrating our capability to deliver multidisciplinary projects."

The company is celebrating its 90th birthday this year, with 9,000 people globally and annual revenues of A$1.7 billion ($1.28 billion).-TradeArabia News Service
