Consultant Hyder has won an £80M design framework contract in Doha, the Qatar capital.
The firm says it is its “biggest award for design services ever to be won” in Doha. The contract is for a five year engineering services framework for the north of the city and involves it carrying out all consultancy and engineering services on local roads and drainage projects. It also involves work on projects to rehabilitate and upgrade existing roads.
The contract was awarded by Qatar public works authority Ashga.
“This is a tremendous win and represents a real step change for Hyder in Qatar and indeed the Middle East,” said Hyder chief executive Ivor Catto. “It will allow us to scale global design and our transportation business. It also gives an indication of our ambition for the company and Ashghal’s confidence in the Hyder brand which has contributed to the growth of Qatar over the last five decades.”
