US-based Hill International has been selected as project manager for a scheme to build three towers on the West Bay of the Doha Corniche in Qatar.
The client is Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC), which is branching into commercial property from its historic focus on chemicals, petrochemicals, materials and other industries.
The scheme, called Abraj Al Tahwiliya (QIMC Tower West Bay Project), will feature three towers housing a 5-star hotel and residences, plus office and commercial spaces, and QIMC’s new headquarters, Hill International said.
The tallest tower will be 185m high.
Hill International will provide construction management, contracts administration and other project management services.
Karim Yazbek, Hill’s vice president and country manager, said: "The Doha Corniche is a unique destination, one with national significance, and a key driver in Qatar’s tourism industry. This project represents a special opportunity to exponentially raise the profile of the Corniche even further."
