Atkins wins contract to work on infrastructure of Qatar’s capital

Ashghal, the public works authority of Qatar, has awarded Atkins a five-year contract worth more than £65m to help with the transformation of the roads and drainage systems in Qatar’s capital city Doha.

The work is a key part of Qatar’s vision for 2030 and provides important infrastructure in the run-up to the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Atkins will have a flexible team of civil and structural engineers, transport planners and urban designers working on the contract, drawn mainly from the Middle East, with support from the UK and North America.

This agreement, for the Doha West area, is one of four packages of work that cover the whole of Qatar, awarded under Ashghal’s procurement framework.
