Qatar Building Co is emerging as one of the state’s main players in the construction market. The firm, which has been in business since 1971, is on the consortium building the major stations for the Doha Metro alongside Samsung C&T and Obrascon Huarte Lain.

In September, QBC won the CSR Initiative of the Year at the Construction Week Qatar Awards 2013. It was praised for a “well-planned” range of local community initiatives.
