Construction giant wins deal to build offices and five star hotel project in Doha.
Arabtec Construction has won a $190m contract to build the Bridge Towers office and hotel project at West Bay, Doha in Qatar.
The project comprises two buildings, one with 45 floors of office space and a 45-storey five star hotel.
The works, which are expected to take 30 months to complete, will include structural, civil, electro-mechanical and external works, the company said in a statement.
Arabtec Construction is a partnership between Arabtec Holding and Nasser Bin Khaled Al Thani & Sons Holding Company.
The company is currently executing Al Waab City Project in Doha, a mixed-use development of houses, retail, offices and apartments.
Arabtec, which earlier this month sold a 70 percent stake to Abu Dhabi's Aabar Investments, has won a number of contracts in Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qatar over the last few months to diversify its portfolio away from Dubai, where construction work has dried up.
