Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has been signed up by Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC) to provide project management services for the construction of its Abraj Al Tahwiliya (QIMC Tower West Bay Project).
Designed as the centrepiece of the West Bay, the three mixed-use, high-rise towers will house a luxury 5-star hotel and residences, office and commercial spaces, five levels of retail area, and four basement levels of parking and back of house services.
The project also includes adjacent areas set aside for landscaping and other improvements. The development totals 120,000 sqm, with the tallest of the project’s towers topping out at 185 m.
Established in 1990, QIMC has emerged as a leading development company in Qatar. The QIMC’s projects have traditionally involved industrial facilities, but the company recognized the potential of the site in the Corniche area of the West Bay. QIMC will also locate its new headquarters in the Abraj Al Tahwiliya.
To support the project, Hill International will provide construction management, contracts administration, project controls, document control, QA/QC support, and other Project Management services.
Karim Yazbek, Hill’s Vice President and Country Manager, said that they committed a team more than ready to help QIMC realise Abraj Al Tahwiliya as intended, on-time and on-budget.
The Doha Corniche is a unique destination, one with national significance, and a key driver in Qatar’s tourism industry. This project represents a special opportunity to exponentially raise the profile of the Corniche even further. The Hill team understands these stakes and has the right skills and experience to make the Towers a reality.
