Plans for Qatar's second World Cup stadium unveiled | GizMag.com

Plans for Qatar's second World Cup stadium unveiled | GizMag.com | Construction companies in Qatar | companies in Qatar | Scoop.it

Modeled on a traditional nomadic tent and featuring a removable top tier, the Al Bayt Stadium is the second of 12 new venues Qatar plans to build for the 2022 World Cup.

 

While some of the ambitious ideas floated prior to the success of Qatar's controversial bid to host FIFA's flagship event in 2022 – like the solar powered Lusail Iconic Stadium and the use man-made clouds to provide shade – seem to have, err, evaporated, one thing that you can bet on is the stadiums that are built will be well worth a look.

 

The 40,000 capacity Al Wakrah stadium, just south of Doha, has already been unveiled with a pearl-inspired design, temperature-cooled climate and targeted Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) 4 Star and Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certifications.

 

The GSAS was launched by the Gulf Organization for Research and Development (GORD) in 2012 and is aimed at being the the standard for excellence on sustainability in the Middle East and North Africa region. It takes into account eight different areas, including energy, water and materials.

Within 10 years Qatar will have one of the most advanced metro systems in the world for sure. The world cup stadiums - if the plans can be well executed, should also deliver new experiences.

Gulf Times Project Qatar to draw huge global crowd Peninsula On-line Doha: Global companies are bullish on Qatar's construction sector as more than 2,100 exhibitors from 47 countries will participate in the 11th edition of Project Qatar 2014 — an...
www.qatarconstructionreview.com 's insight:

The phenomenal multinational construction show and stand-out trade event is almost here…


Project Qatar – The 11th International Construction Technology & Building Materials Exhibition is just days away from the 12th – 15th May 2014 and looks set to break even more records. Last year’s hugely successful show was widely reported on but if you did not know it featured 2,100 exhibiting companies from countries worldwide and had 45,162 visitors. It is produced by the leading event’s organiser in the Middle East IFP Qatar, part of the IFP Group. This year, the show will be held at the multi award winning state of the art venue Qatar National Convention Centre (QNCC). In this special report Qatar Construction Review takes a look at some of the companies exhibiting this year and speaks to Mr. Rawad Sleem – Project Qatar Project Manager, about what visitors can expect at next month’s show which features 4 concurrent events which clearly categorises different specialisations: Qatar-Stone Tech 2014; Heavy Max 2014; LightingTech Qatar; and HVACTech Qatar.

 

German companies have always been very well represented at the Project Qatar industry events and this year many corporations that exhibited last year are returning to build on the successes made through meeting key decision makers at this unique platform. However, some German companies exhibiting for the first time include Baumaschinen Fink GmbH which supplies spare parts for construction equipment globally; pipe specialists BQ-Rohrsysteme GmbH; engineering and instillation company Ebawe Anlagentechnik GmbH; material separation specialists Steinert Elektromagnetbau GmbH; Haver Niagara GmbH; Prime Drilling GmbH and may more. The German pavilion is always strongly represented in terms of manufacturing organisations and this year will be no different.

 

The Italian Chamber of Commerce in Qatar (IBCQ) has been very active in finding opportunities for companies from the country and in March of this year met senior Qatari dignitaries. IBQC Chairperson Ms Palma Libotte accompanied by the Italian Ambassador to Qatar Guido de Sanctis, presented their chamber’s work to Abdullah Eid Al Sulait, Qatar’s Ambassador to Italy and top  Qatari business leaders including  Sheikh Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani,  Mohammad bin Faisal bin Qassim Al Thani and Remy Rowhany, Director General, Qatar Chamber.

 

At Project Qatar this year the Italians have said that they will have their largest representation with up to 100 Italian firms exhibiting. First time exhibitors from the Italian pavilion include safety equipment and automated door specialists C.C.E. Costruzioni Chiusure Ermetiche Srl, specialist surface finishing company Colorificio Veneziano srl, Deen Production Srl, DG Mosaic SRL, Fabbrica Trentina Conduttori S.r.l., Ferrero Rubinetterie s.r.l., renowned heavy equipment transportation specialists Industrie COMETTO S.p.A., Mech Studio SRL, MEP (Macchine Elettroniche Piegatrici) S.p.A., lighting decoration specialists P&P di Divona Rosanna and many more.

 

Another nation that will be extremely well represented at Project Qatar this year is India. Their pavilion also features The Federation of Indian Chamber of Commerce (FICCI) amongst first time exhibitors. Indeed there is a growing trend now for international government agencies to represent themselves at this event due to the type of contacts that can be made here. Apart from making the vital Qatari government contacts, exhibitors can also take advantage from the huge exposure to key regional agents, dealers, buyers and suppliers. Other first time exhibitors from India will include the manufacturers and exporters of armoured doors and designers Dormak Interio Pvt. Ltd., international cement exporters and marketers GSR Marketing Ltd, Jaypee India Ltd., Nirmal Overseas Limited, Prince Industries, Rohin Stone Impex Pvt. Ltd, Sanwa Diamond Tools, Simbel Ceramic Pvt. Ltd., as well as communications company Stone Infotech Services to name but a few.

 

All the country pavilions have companies that are exhibiting for the first time including Spain, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt and many more. As ever once again there is a very impressive global representation. Qatar Construction Review caught up with Mr. Rawad Sleem – Project Qatar Project Manager to find out more about this year’s show and what visitors can expect. The exhibition was fully booked in under 3 months and Mr. Rawad Sleem said that Project Qatar had experienced, “the highest number of enquiries ever received”. He also commented that the event organisers were, “excited about our move to the QNCC given its considerable size and its state-of-the-art technologies”.

Undoubtedly the centre will provide a brand new experience for visitors and exhibitors and Mr. Rawad Sleem said, “Building on previous successes, we expect this year’s 11th edition to be our best exhibition to date. We are introducing exciting and technologically advanced features, including a specialized show planner, a B2B matchmaking platform for which exhibitors and visitors can register on the Project Qatar website to match their respective profiles and areas of interest, which will lead to subsequent meetings. Visitors and exhibitors will also benefit from an advanced mobile application that will provide information about the event, the exhibitors’ list, the event planner, the location of the venue, links to social media accounts, the online visitor registration form and much more”.

 

Project Qatar promises to take the exhibition experience to a whole new level and this can only be very good for the international companies seeking contracts in Qatar and indeed the construction industry in Qatar which needs the global specialised expertise. Mr. Sleem also stated how Project Qatar serves, “as a strategic hub, empowering local, regional, and international companies to interact with key industry players and obtain potential deals to be signed by the Qatari government during and after the event”.

www.qatarconstructionreview.com 's insight:

Certainly the pace of projects last year did not reach the levels that were planned by the authorities or anticipated by the wider industry. However, we at www.qatarconstructionreview.com have no doubt that 2014 will be a whole different affair, with analysis of January clearly showing this. Companies in Qatar must focus on their core competences to be continually successful because whilst there will be increased numbers of firms entering the markets, competition will be fierce. Overseas companies must not lose sight of what set them apart domestically and in other markets and look to improve this in order to be able to benefit from Qatar's exciting construction industry opportunities.

PROJECT QATAR 2013

PROJECT QATAR 2013 | Construction companies in Qatar | companies in Qatar | Scoop.it
www.qatarconstructionreview.com 's insight:

I have been tracking this standout construction show for about three years now, and I have to say that members of my staff at www.qatarconstructionreview.com are absolutely thrilled that we will not only be attending there...but also exhibiting. Most companies today are well aware of the importance of the on-line arena, social media and presence etc. However, we, Qatar Construction Review Ltd, are going to be doing things in reverse for Project Qatar 2014. This is because we will be venturing out from our on-line entrenchment and Google fortified bastion and journeying into the real world. Not only that, we will be doing this at such a big event. It is a very logical step for us to participate in this show, but it got me thinking, ‘Will we be going from our on-line reviews, into printed editions for special occasions in the near future?’ I was at conference last month and the UKTI Speaker said he had heard about the company, saw our online resource and asked if I had a magazine on hand to give him! And of course as I explained what we did...I couldn’t help myself wondering if something indeed was missing.

I think that’s why I loved economics at college – constantly trying to model the real word in theoretically based paradigms and always trying to recognise those real life market elements that fit the (at times seemingly abstract) text book graphs and diagrams so well. It is of course very important for us to attend this show this year, Project Qatar 2014 and conduct a thorough analysis for future references. My staff have told me that they will be on the beach most days since the show starts daily from 4.00pm…

Moreover, by that time they will probably have one of the best Metro systems in the world and I'm sure will deliver some fantastic projects and produce  as promised.
