Orascom Construction Joint Venture Unit Wins $675 Million Qatar Contract

Orascom Construction Industries, Egypt’s largest publicly traded builder, said a unit owned by its joint venture with Besix Group has won a $675 million contract in Qatar.

The unit, Six Construct Qatar, will build a phase of the Doha Convention Center & Tower in a joint venture with Midmac Contracting Co., Cairo-based Orascom said in a statement on its website today.

Orascom operates in the Middle East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The company said it had formed a joint venture in January with Morgan Stanley to invest in infrastructure in the Middle East and Africa.

“Qatar is a core regional market for the OCI Construction Group,” Chief Executive Officer Nassef Sawiris said in the statement.

Six Construct’s share of the contract is about $338 million, Orascom said. Orascom owns 50 percent of the Besix Group, which in June won a $750 million contract in a joint venture to build the third phase of the New Doha International Airport passenger terminal complex.

Shares of Orascom were almost unchanged at 250 Egyptian pounds ($43.83) at 10:47 a.m. in Cairo trading today.

You will Insha2allah (If god wills.) see it rising, since the Convention center is actually in some areas 1 floor high and in other areas at street level. so this is going good, the tower should be the next step.

Take note a near-by parking lot being utilised by Sheraton hotel will be used for this project aswell, it will be excavated and turned into underground parking, above however will be made into a park, so it would create better views for the area, at the same time, more parking space.

this is the area i am talking about, the green area at the bottom.

This picture depicts how height really matters. This certainly would be dubbed the tallest building on earth.

This building reminds me so much of Grollo tower in Melbourne which would've been the worlds tallest building. This thread brings back bad memories...
