Mall of Qatar ... spread over 165,000 sq m.

HILL International, a global leader in managing construction risk, has secured a contract to provide project management services in connection with the construction of the Mall of Qatar in Doha, Qatar.

The three-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately QR35 million ($9.6 million).

The Mall of Qatar is expected to serve an estimated 20 million customers annually. A distinguishing architectural feature of the mall is a three-storey central amphitheatre with a massive domed roof, called the Oasis, which will feature themed restaurants, fine dining and family fun food experiences on all sides. Spread over 165,000 sq m, the mall will have a major hypermarket, five department stores, 20 restaurants and an indoor streetscape with flagship stores from around the world.

“This will be a retail attraction like no other in Doha,” said Mohammed Al Rais, senior vice-president and managing director (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.

“We are very excited to be involved with the construction of such an impressive project,” he added.
