Construction

Qatar Construction 2012
With the construction industry expecting several changes in both the short and long term, contractors and developers are anticipating a steady increase in projects in late 2012 and into 2013. While the past two years have been difficult for the sector, with excessive competition driving down prices and limiting the availability of work, underlying growth factors remain strong. Although the excitement surrounding the 2022 World Cup has brought few tangible benefits to contractors yet, the capital is expected to see a number of expansion projects that should catalyse other developments. This chapter examines how sustainable building practices are at the centre of the government’s National Development Strategy 2011-16, with environmental production a key priority. The chapter also includes an interview with Ebrahim Al Sulaiti, CEO of United Development Company.
