The Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC), the organization responsible for delivering the stadiums for the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup, has confirmed its seventh main construction contractor.
Qatari construction giant AlJaber Engineer LLC (JEC) and leading Turkish construction firm Tekfen Construction have been awarded the contract for the stadium being built in Doha's Al Thumama district.
The joint-venture partners are scheduled to complete construction of the 40,000-seat stadium by 2020. The venue is located near the capital city, Doha, and it is slated to host World Cup matches up to the quarter-final stage.
"We're pleased to bring together two firms as reputable as AlJaber and Tekfen to deliver such an important project for the SC and Qatar," said Hilal Al-Kuwari, technical delivery chairman at the SC. "The awarding of this contract represents another important project milestone, coming at a significant time as Qatar and the SC move beyond the halfway point in its World Cup journey.
"The appointment of a local company in this joint venture also demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the economic legacy for Qatar, post 2022."
