Sheraton Park / Parking Project | WEST BAY | U/C

Sheraton Park work to start this summer

The Sheraton Park project includes a two-level car lot and an underground tunnel providing access to the under-construction Convention Centre across the road.

Work on the Sheraton Park project, an ambitious plan which will change the face of Doha’s Corniche, is scheduled to start this summer, it is learnt.
The project, with focus on developing the Sheraton-end of the over 8km Corniche into a public park, includes a two-level car lot and an underground tunnel providing access to the under-construction Convention Centre across the road.
The proposal also includes the design-build of a maintenance-depot and a control centre for Doha’s future light-rail passenger transit system and two connecting entry-and-exit tunnels.
QDVC, a subsidiary of Vinci Construction Grands Projects (49%), and Qatari Diar (51%) have already completed 50% of the feasibility study for the project.
The contract calls for the design-build of a 66kV sub-station for the utility provider, Kahramaa, in addition to two 11kV sub-stations.
According to information posted on Vinci Construction’s website, the project consists of a 73,000m2 public park of “exceptional quality”, including basins, water fountains, children’s playgrounds, cafes and restaurants.
Certain parts of the car-park building are air-conditioned. It will have a dozen lifts as well as a freight lift. An electronic guiding system will direct users to available parking spots.
The agreement with QDVC is an ECI (early contractor involvement) contract, which enables the company to involve in the design and study phase (phase 1) and in which construction costs (phase 2) are then jointly determined by the client and the company.
Phase 1 covers preliminary activities such as repositioning the Sheraton Hotel’s network and re-alignment of the Corniche Road, in addition to developing studies and evaluating project pricing.
“A cost-plus-fee pricing structure is being used for phase 1, with an approved budget of about €10mn (over QR48mn),” the website pointed out.
Phase 2, or the construction phase, is expected to start in the summer of 2009 and is valued at about €200mn (about QR962mn) over a 32-month period.
The engineering details say that the project would require roughly 1mn cubic metres of excavation – approximately half of which must be carried out in limestone below the groundwater table.
The groundwater table will be permanently drawn down until construction of the building’s shell is completed.
The Corniche Road separates the Sheraton Park from the West Bay business district.

I saw plans for this like a year ago. It will be built also under the parking lots and it will serve as the main parking area for the tower. So, nothing will be built overground. Hope they start soon on this cause it will take a long time considering the ground watertable levels in the area.

Qatari Diar and Vinci joint venture wins Qatar car park deal

Car park will be built in front of Sheraton hotel

Qatari Diar Vinci Construction (QDVC) has won a €264m ($337.8m) contract to design and build an underground car park and landscaped gardens in Doha.

The work will involve designing and constructing the car park with around 2,000 spaces and the landscaped gardens in front of the Doha Sheraton Hotel, which is located in the financial and diplomatic district of the West Bay area of Doha.

The landscaping work will cover a 73,000 square metre area and will involve building fountains, play areas and restaurants.

The contract will also include the construction of a maintenance depot and command centre for the future Doha light rail system, as well as three electricity substations. The construction of a cut-and-cover tunnel between the car park and the future Doha Convention Centre is also part of the project.

QDVC is a 51:49 joint venture company of local developer Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company (QDREIC) and France’s Vinci Construction Grand Projets.

West Bay New Car Park | WEST BAY | APP




The West Bay area in Doha is to get a major facelift and the much-needed parking space with the completion of an ambitious car park project in front of the Sheraton Hotel by 2013.
As reported earlier in Gulf Times, Qatari Diar Vinci Construction (QDVC), a joint venture between Diar and the French construction major Vinci, has been awarded the project to build the underground car park and landscaped gardens at a cost of QR1.22bn.
“QDVC has been awarded the contract to design and build an underground car park and the landscaped gardens fronting the Doha Sheraton Hotel, in the financial and diplomatic district of the West Bay,” a company spokesperson said yesterday.
The contract covers the design and construction of a car park with around 2,000 spaces for Sheraton Hotel guests and the general public. The car park will be fitted with an electronic system to guide drivers to vacant spaces that would be a first in Qatar.
The state-of-the-art project will be a major trendsetter for Qatar’s multi-billion dollar development plans and add to the many novel features being added to the capital city like the Dohaland, the New Doha International Airport and the metro rail system.
According to the terms of the contract, the project will be completed in 34 months. It will have a maintenance depot and command centre for the future Doha light rail system as well as three electricity substations and the landscaping of a 73,000sq m area which includes fountains, basins, play areas and restaurants.
Also included in the project will be the construction of a cut-and-cover tunnel between the car park and the future Doha Convention Centre which is already under construction.
The project will meet the much-needed and long-standing demand for parking space and leisure facilities in the West Bay which is the prime financial district in downtown Doha.
Besides the Sheraton Park site project, QDVC is now working in Lusail on the Car Parks and the LRT (Light Rail Transit System), on the PS70 Doha North sewage joint venture, the Qatar-Bahrain causeway joint venture and in Eritrea on the Dahlak Island resort.

I guess they rerouted part of the Cornish so they could excavate the area between the tower and the park. After they do that, they will reroute the road on top again and excavate the other side, I guess.
