Qatar hands out US $420 million Doha airport deal

Qatar has awarded a QR1.53 billion (US $420 m.) contract to create reclaimed land for the international airport in Doha. The project will have to be executed over the next 24 months.

The contract has been won by an international consortium of four dredging firms, led by Dutch dredger, Royal Boskalis Westminster. Other members of the group are Qatar Dredging Company, Dredging International and Great Lakes Dredging & Dock Company. Royal Boskalis’ share in the project is approximately 30%.

“The construction of the platform will require 60 million m³ of sand to be mined from sea. The four partners in the consortium will deploy, in total, 11 large cutter suction dredgers and trailing suction hopper dredgers on the project,” Boskalis said in a statement. “This project in Qatar is one of a series of large-scale land reclamation projects on the global market for maritime infrastructure. This market is driven by long-term factors, such as world population growth and growth of the world economy and international trading volumes.”

Royal Boskalis Westminster is an international group with core activities in the construction and maintenance of ports and waterways, land reclamation, coastal defense and riverbank protection. The company has a fleet of over 300 units and operates in over 50 countries across five continents. It has some 3000 employees.

Belgium’s Dredging International is equally owned by Belgian holding firm Ackermans & Van Haaren and construction company CFE. Local firm, Qatar Dredging Company (QDC), is a subsidiary of United Development Company (UDC).

“We are deeply honored to be a part of this auspicious project,” said Hussain Al Fardan, UDC chairman. “QDC was able to take giant leaps in record time. Since its establishment in June of this year, QDC has managed to win contracts worth a total of more than QR2.1 billion. This is a success that is unprecedented in the local private sector,” Al Fardan added.

QDC is a joint venture between the State of Qatar, which owns 10% of the shares, the Belgian giant, International Dredging, with 44%, while UDC controls the remaining 46%. QDC is also the primary developer for the Pearl-Qatar, a reclaimed island project. Another UDC subsidiary, Qatar District Cooling Company, has paired with UAE-based Tabreed. In addition, UDC is a partner in Al Saif Company, which is a joint venture with Qatar Petroleum with a focus on petrochemical products.

some facts

In 2003 Doha International Airport and the Government of the State of Qatar announced a masterplan for a new $2 billion Doha International Airport to be built to the east of the current airport. The following year construction began on the new state-of-the art Airport. When completed, it will have two parallel runways and an estimated capacity to handle and process nearly 12 million passengers every year. The terminal will have 24 contact gates in the first phase and will accommodate up to six A380-800 Super Jumbos when fully developed. The complex will also include three high-star classification hotels for the convenience of visitors.

Until the new airport is opened, the existing airport will be significantly upgraded to handle the increase in passenger growth.
When the new airport does open, it will position Qatar as a leading regional aviation hub. The 2,200-hectare airport site will be developed in three phases, with work on phase one begun in 2004 and final completion of the ultimate development scheduled for 2015.

Doha airport is gunning to be the next major middle east hub, very similar strategies to Dubai in terms of the airport growth plan and the airline development plan(QR vs EK). Although the local region is not sufficient yet to feed the growing hubs, there is definitely scope for two major hubs in the persian gulf area, considering the supreme location of the region at the crossroads of world aviation. Did u guys know that....with the range of current production jets, there are very few airports in the world that can support non-stop hops to all corners of the world. Both Dubai and Doha fall into that lucky zone and have begun cashing in on this unique opportunity.
In future, jets could fly further without stops, but by then, these airports along with the cities they serve would have matured...Dubai airport is already close to maturity alongside major world airports.

cheerz

They are reclaiming the land, coz its cheaper then to go and buy a lot of land abd build this airport on it. They are building through three different phases. Although they do have a timeline for each phase, i think they will build a phase and as demand increases the will move on to the second phase. As for the current airport it will be demolished and the land it sits on will be divided and sold as residential and commerical land. $$$

The foundation stone for the $7.5 billion New Doha International Airport (NDIA) will be laid this morning by Qatar's Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani.

The airport is being constructed 4km from the existing facility, on a 5,400-acre site. It is being constructed in response to a projected demand for additional international passenger capacity to the region. The current airport handles 4.2 million passengers per year, whereas the new airport will be able to handle 12.5 million per year after the first phase of construction. The first phase will cost $2.5 billion, while phases two and three are projected to cost an additional $5 billion.

The contractor for the first phase of the airport construction and the planning and design is Bechtel Group.

Qatar has launched construction of the new $5.5-billion Doha International Airport (NDIA) airport, with Prime Minister Shaikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani laying the cornerstone.

The Prime Minister Shaikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani was the official guest of honour at the ground-breaking ceremony at the heart of the construction site in Qatar, attended by senior government officials, members of the Cabinet and a host of local and foreign dignitaries.

Shaikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani laid the foundation stone marking the start of construction on the 1,700-hectare site, approximately 4km east of the existing airport.

The ground-breaking ceremony was also attended by ambassadors, Qatari and international business leaders, officials from project managers Bechtel and senior airline personnel from many carriers.

The New Doha International Airport will fulfill three critical roles: Qatar as the gateway to the world; hub for the country's national airline Qatar Airways and other carriers; and as a cargo and aircraft maintenance centre.

NDIA is scheduled to open in 2009 at a cost of $2.5 billion in the first phase and will be capable of handling 12 million passengers a year, together with 750,000 tonnes of cargo.

Once fully developed in 2015 at a cost of $5.5 billion, the airport is expected to handle up to 50 million passengers and two million tonnes of cargo a year.

One of the project's key features is that 40 per cent of the site will be built on reclaimed land from the Arabian Gulf.

Qatar Airways will manage the new airport, designed to help shape Doha as a key regional and global aviation hub.

The new airport will be the world's first to be designed and built specifically for Airbus's new A380-800 double-decker 'super jumbo' - the largest passenger aircraft ever built.

The A380 will be capable of carrying more than 550 passengers, with Qatar Airways a launch customer taking delivery of the first of its four A380s in 2009, the year the new airport opens.

Abdul Aziz Mohamed Al Noami, Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Qatar and chairman of the NDIA steering committee, said:

"We are very grateful for Prime Minister Shaikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani for laying the foundation stone today that signals the start of construction on site of this wonderful new airport which will help support the economic boom currently taking place in Qatar.

"This new airport will play a very important role in the development of the aviation sector in Qatar and will be an ideal base for Qatar Airways and other international airlines."

Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker said: "We are delighted to see work begin on this brand new airport which will be an engineering feat and promises to be a state-of-the-art facility in the region and, indeed around the world, when it opens in four years' time.

"This airport will be custom-built for the new double-deck Airbus A380 of which Qatar Airways is pleased to be one of the launch customers.

"Qatar Airways will proudly showcase this aircraft when it makes its maiden flight in our colours to the new airport in Doha in 2009."

US engineering and construction giant Bechtel has been awarded the contract to build the new airport, which will initially have a 26-gate passenger terminal complex, two runways, maintenance hangar, cargo centre and extensive shopping facilities.

The state-of-the-art passenger terminal with a wavy roof structure will be accessed through a roadway network that passes through a man-made lagoon to complement the natural bay and water setting.

There will also be a 1,900 square metre airport mosque with minaret in a garden plaza located on the south side of the airport's main passenger terminal.

The Amiri complex will be an architectural marvel, with the exterior shape of the pavilion representing sail boats which complement the water setting of the airport. The building is layered to provide a striking effect and will light up the night sky.

The complex will also include a pavilion, ceremonial podium, apron, private roadways and parking, surrounded by lush landscaping.

The airport complex will comprise a 75-metre high control tower located between the parallel runways, multi-storey office building, parking and access roads. Triangular in shape with one angle cut by a crescent shape all along its height, the structure will be topped by a glazed cabin.

Award-winning Qatar Airways is one of the fastest growing airlines operating one of the youngest fleets in the world to 57 destinations in Europe, Middle East, Africa, Indian subcontinent and Asia.

The airline, based in Doha, Qatar, operates a fleet of 39 modern all-Airbus aircraft.

The airline is one of only three in the world to be awarded a Five Star ranking by Skytrax - the independent aviation industry monitoring agency - for high service standards and quality.

Bechtel is a global engineering, construction and project management company with more than a century of experience on complex projects in challenging locations.

Privately owned with headquarters in San Francisco, the company has 40 offices around the world, employing 40,000 people.

The company undertakes projects covering airport and seaport development, oil and gas field development, defence and aerospace, environmental clean-up schemes and road and rail systems.

$7.5bn is not cheap at all! More than the first plans for Dubai Land!Don't you think it's overpriced ? Maybe it's the cost of everything including the technological stuff.

I still love this project, though we need better renderings.


Take a look at that article
"Qatar has begun construction of its new USD5.5bn airport, with Prime Minister Shaikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani laying the cornerstone. The new airport will be able to handle up to 60 million passengers a year by 2020 and will open in early 2009."

well this cost is due to the fact that it's the first airport to completely start from scratch, and it's going to be a masterpiece, so am not surprised that the cost is high.

I think thats the max. estimated cost of the overall project, from land fill to door knobs, over a period of 15 years. Which isnt that much for an airport that wants to be internationally recoginzed.

I dont know if its a good idea to handle 60 m passengers a year, thats a bit to ambitious. Maybe 15 m is a better number. But i can tell you from now that the demand on Doha airport is crazy. believe it or not there arent even enough parking space for the airplanes. And althought the airport is going to be demolished in like 6 years, they are still spending 10 of millions to expand it.

A consortium of four dredging companies has been awarded a $420 million contract to reclaim from the Gulf nearly half of the site for the New Doha International Airport, said a report.

Qatar Dredging Company, Dredging International of Belgium, Great Lakes Dredge & Dock of the US and Boskalis Westminster of the Netherlands signed the contract Sunday with Qatari authorities at a ceremony in Doha.

The airport project, covering nearly 2,200 hectares, will be built in three phases, with a total cost estimated at $5.5 billion. Last year, Qatar awarded US engineering giant Bechtel the design, construction and project management contract.

The QR1.5 billion ($420 million) contract signed today is one of the largest in a series of packages tendered.

The contract involves placing more than 60 million cubic metres of sand and rock fill over a two-year period to reclaim from the Gulf the 22 sq kilometre platform of the airport, nearly half of the site for the project.

The first phase of the new airport is expected to accommodate 12 million passengers a year when completed in 2009.

The New Doha International Airport is being built east of the existing airport, which is overcrowded and undergoing expansion at a cost of $140 million.

The development in Qatar of the country's $5.5bn New Doha International Airport (NDIA) will be the focus of a key presentation in India this week given by chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker.

Al Baker will speak at the Airport Build And Supply Exhibition and Conference in New Delhi on 16 February 2005. He will highlight plans for the new state-of-the-art airport for which construction began only last month.

Key figures from the airport industry around the world will be at the two-day conference, taking place at the Ashok Convention Centre in the Indian capital.

The conference will be opened by Indian Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel.

The blueprint for the New Doha International Airport has been widely acclaimed by industry observers because of its impressive architectural features. Al Baker will highlight the importance of building an airport, which finds the right balance between hi-tech facilities and the environment.

The chosen site is on an old rubbish dump on the coast, which is being recovered and placed in a landfill away from populated areas.

With aircraft landing and taking-off over the sea, the airport will greatly improve the noise and air quality allowing for 24-hour operations without disrupting the urban environment.

The airport will be environmentally friendly with a new artificial coral reef and marine habitat created around the new facility.

NDIA is scheduled to open in 2009 at a cost of $2.5 billion in the first phase and will be capable of handling 12 million passengers a year, together with 750,000 tonnes of cargo.

Once fully developed in 2015 at a cost of $5.5 billion, the airport is expected to handle up to 50 million passengers and 2 million tonnes of cargo a year.

The 1,700-hectare site is approximately four kilometres east of the existing airport. One of the key features is that 40 per cent of the area will be built on reclaimed land from the Arabian Gulf.

The New Doha International Airport aims to develop Qatar as the gateway to the world and become the new expanded hub for the country's national airline Qatar Airways as well as other carriers.

Qatar Airways will operate and manage the new airport, designed to help shape Doha as a key regional and global aviation hub at the crossroads of east and west.

The new airport will be the world's first to be designed and built specifically for Airbus's new A380-800 double-decker 'super jumbo' - the largest passenger aircraft ever built.

The A380 will be capable of carrying more than 550 passengers, with Qatar Airways a launch customer taking delivery of the first of its four A380s in 2009, the year the new airport opens.

Speaking ahead of his visit to New Delhi, Al Baker said: 'The new airport will help support the economic boom currently taking place in Qatar and play a key role in the development of the aviation sector in the country. It will also be an ideal base for Qatar Airways and other international airlines to grow their business.'

'The new airport will simply be an engineering feat and promises to be a state-of-the-art facility in the region and, indeed around the world, when it opens in four years' time.'

US engineering and construction giant Bechtel has been awarded the contract to build the new airport, which will initially have a 26-gate passenger terminal complex, two runways, maintenance hangar, cargo centre and extensive shopping facilities.

The state-of-the-art passenger terminal with a wavy roof structure will be accessed through a roadway network that passes through a man-made lagoon to complement the natural bay and water setting.

Plans for latest NDIA development take off

The New Doha International Airport (NDIA) steering committee held a signing ceremony to formally award the dredging and reclamation works contract for the country’s new airport project to a consortium of four dredging companies.
The consortium — made up of Qatar Dredging Company, Dredging International of Belgium, Great Lakes Dredging & Dock Cy of the US, and Boskalis Westminster of the Netherlands, will create the 22 km2 platform for the New Doha International Airport. Qatar Dredging Company is a Qatari-Belgian joint venture company between the Belgian firm of Dredging International, private Qatari partner UDC and the Government of Qatar.

In January last year, the NDIA steering committee had awarded a contract to the US engineering firm Bechtel to design, construct and project manage the US $5.5 billion new airport which will cater for Qatar’s growth well into the future.
Bechtel’s plan calls for the overall airport project to be split into some 20 packages, each of which will be tendered to
local and international companies.

The dredging and reclamation package is the fourth and latest package to be tendered and awarded, and is by far the largest.

“We are pleased that the consortium put together a very strong team which will be needed to undertake this ambitious project. Today is a great day for the project. The contract was awarded on time and within our expected budget,” said Abdul Aziz Mohamed Al Noami, chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority of Qatar and chairman of the NDIA steering committee. “We have worked closely with the Supreme Council for the Environment and Natural Resources to ensure the design does not cause unnecessary damage to the environment. We have also put together a comprehensive environmental monitoring plan to ensure that all the contractors work in an environmentally friendly manner,” he added.

Qatar believes that the NDIA will fulfill three critical roles: Qatar as the gateway to the world; a hub for the country’s national airline Qatar Airways and other carriers; and as a cargo and aircraft maintenance centre. NDIA is scheduled to open in 2009 at a cost of $2.5 billion in the first phase, and will be capable of handling 12 million passengers a year, together with 750 000 tonnes of cargo. Once fully developed in 2015 at a total cost of $5.5 billion, the airport is expected to handle up to 50 million passengers and 2 million tonnes of cargo a year.

Tenders for work on Qatar's new airport will be offered next month


Dubai: Tenders worth up to $2 billion (Dh7.34 billion) for work on Qatar's New Doha International Airport will be offered in May, company representatives said.

Bechtel Aviation, which is managing construction of the region's only greenfield airport, will use the Airport Build and Supply Exhibition in Dubai to elaborate on details of the $2.6 billion mega project.

The exhibition will take place from May 23 to 25 at Dubai's Airport Expo.

"So far, we have awarded contracts worth about $600 million [Dh2.2 billion] for site mobilisation, land reclamation and rubbish landfield removal work," said Rudy Vercelli, Bechtel's director for global strategic development.

"Our priority in the coming months will be finding the most advanced and qualified airport equipment suppliers in the market. Our needs cover a vast range of goods, from runway lighting to baggage scanning and handling systems," Vercelli said.

Vercelli will detail Bechtel's needs and demands for the project, as well as the airport's tendering procedure, at the exhibition.

"Our goal is to open lines of communication with as many contractors and suppliers as possible," Vercelli said.

New airport achieves rare feat

Doha

One of the world's largest aircraft hangars currently under construction at the Doha International Airport has undergone an engineering feat with the raising of the roof using unique arch-shaping technology known as 'stress erection'.

The flat roof of the $18 million facility, to be used for the maintenance of Qatar Airways aircraft, was assembled in a horizontal position at ground level before being raised during a 10-hour procedure. No cranes were used for this and the whole process was completed with a series of cables and hydraulic jacks, said a report in the Gulf Times.

The technology used is known as 'stressed arch' where 144 thick steel cables encased in long tubes tugged at the structure, forcing six trusses to move inwards up to 20m and shaping the flat roof to slowly form an arch, a Qatar Airways release yesterday said.

The first section of the curved roof covering an area of 155 metres by 60 metre was raised in a five-hour operation in March. The second section measuring 155 metres by 72 metres was raised in a similar time frame this week. On completion, the hangar will be the biggest of its kind featuring stretched arch technology, the airline said, according to the report.

The construction work began in June 2004. It is scheduled to be completed in about two months. The hangar will measure 155m in length, 135m wide and 35m high at its highest point on completion.

The stretched arch technology was developed by Strarch, an Australian company that specialises in large clear span building structures using mainly structural steel in unique ways.

Qatar Airways said the new hangar would be capable of accommodating two Airbus A330s simultaneously and Qatar Airways' new double-deck A380 when it comes into service in 2009. In addition, the hangar can have six other aircraft parked inside - four A320s and two smaller executive jets.

British consultancy firm, WS Atkins has been appointed by Qatar Airways to oversee the hangar project. Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar al-Baker said: "Having the largest facility of its kind in the Middle East to accommodate up to nine aircraft at the same time enables this facility to also become a maintenance centre for other airlines. The hangar will be unique on its completion because of its ground-breaking technology."

Robert Hope, Atkins' resident director (Qatar), said "We are delighted to have been commissioned by the Qatar Airways to oversee the design and construction of this prestigious project, the largest single span hangar of this type in the world. "It is a tribute to the foresight of Qatar Airways and its chief executive Akbar al-Baker that we celebrate this ground breaking technology, the first of its kind in the Middle East."

Work has already started on the $5.5 billion New Doha International Airport (NDIA), which is scheduled to open in phases from 2009. The new airport, will initially, be capable of handling 12mn passengers a year, rising to 50mn passengers when fully developed in 2015. One of the project's key features is that 40 per cent of the site will be built on reclaimed land from the Arabian Gulf.

«21» عقدا للشركات المحلية في مشروع مطار الدوح&

«21» عقدا للشركات المحلية في مشروع مطار الدوحة الجديد

كتب - أبوبكر محمد الحسن

أكد محمد بن خالد المانع رئيس مجلس ادارة غرفة تجارة وصناعة قطر ان مشروع انشاء مطار الدوحة الدولي الجديد الذي تصل كلفته الاجمالية الى 5 مليارات دولار أميركي يعد واحدا من اكبر مشاريع البنية التحتية في منطقة الشرق الاوسط مما يوفر فرصة فريدة لشركات القطاع الخاصة للاستفادة من المشاركة في هذا المشروع العملاق‚

وقال المانع انه على الرغم من معرفتنا بأن بعض شركات القطاع الخاص القطري قد حصلت على بعض المشاريع الثانوية في هذا المشروع العملاق فرادى أو كمجموعات متحدة فإن هناك فرصا أخرى للشركات القطرية لتحصل على عقود في المشروع كشركاء أو مقدمي خدمات عند طرحها لاحقا كمناقصات على مدى فترة انجاز المشروع‚

وقال المانع: ان ندوتنا موجهة لمناقشة هذا الموضوع الهام وللوقوف على الكيفية التي يمكن فيها للشركات القطرية ان تشارك في هذا المشروع الضخم من خلال العرض الذي سيقدمه ديفيد ستيوارت مدير المشروع معربا في ختام كلمته عن شكره الى ادارة الطيران المدني ممثلة برئيس مجلس ادارتها لتعاونها مع غرفة تجارة وصناعة قطر في تنظيم هذه الندوة التي نرجو لها ان تعود بالنفع والخير على الجميع‚

وكان المانع قد رحب في بداية الندوة بالمشاركين في الندوة التي تبحث سبل مشاركة شركات القطاع الخاص القطري في المشروعات الثانوية الخاصة بمشروع انشاء مطار الدوحة الدولي الجديد‚

من جانبه عبر عبدالعزيز محمد النعيمي رئيس مجلس ادارة الهيئة العامة للطيران المدني عن شكره لرئيس واعضاء مجلس ادارة غرفة تجارة وصناعة قطر على اهتمامهم بعمل لجنة تسيير مشروع مطار الدوحة الدولي الجديد‚

واستعرض النعيمي مراحل العمل في المشروع الذي بدأ منذ سنتين تقريبا بطرح مناقصة فازت بها شركة بكتل العالمية التي يفترض ان تسلم المشروع بنهاية عام 2008 مؤكدا ان لجنته راعت اشراك الشركات القطرية في بعض العقود‚ وقدم عمران عسة مدير التصميم في شركة بكتل شرحا مفصلا عن مراحل المشروع موضحا ان المشروع انطلق من ثلاثة مبادىء اساسية تعبر عن النظرة البعيدة لحضرة صاحب السمو امير البلاد المفدى الذي يرعى المشروع ولجنة تسيير المشروع حيث ان المبدأ الاول هو ان يكون المطار الجديد مواكبا للقرن الواحد والعشرين وبالاضافة الى النظرة للمطار باعتباره وسيلة نقل حضارية للمسافرين يستفيد المطار من عمليات الشحن الجوي ويعني ذلك المشاركة في انعاش الاقتصاد الوطني والمبدأ الثالث ان مشروع المطار الجديد يدعم النجاحات الاقتصادية والسياسية في قطر‚

واستعرض عسة عمليات التصميم والبناء وما تتضمنه من فرص لشركات القطاع الخاص القطري والتي يصل عددها الى 21 عقدا ضمن عمليات التصميم والبناء ثم استيعاب اكثر من 7 شركات قطرية وخليجية في هذه العقود منها شركة التيسير والجابر وقطر للحفريات وجار استقطاب المزيد من العروض الداخية‚

واشار عسة الى ان شركة بكتل وضعت عددا من شروط التأهيل للشركات للعمل في المشروع والتي وضعتها لجنة مختصة بالتأهيل تشتمل على جميع التخصصات ويرأسها عبدالعزيز محمد النعيمي رئيس مجلس ادارة الهيئة العامة للطيران المدني موضحا ان شروط التأهيل تنحصر في امتلاك الشركة معدات جديدة ونظاما محاسبيا جيدا والالتزام بمواعيد التسليم والحصول على شهادة جودة عالمية «أيزو» مؤكدا ان لجنة التأهيل لا تعتد بعروض اسعار الشركات بقدر ما تهتم بخبرتها وقدرتها الحقيقية على انجاز عمل بمواصفات عالمية وقياسية‚

وقال عسة ان مدرج الطائرات تم تصميمه بحيث يستوعب مرور طائرات (أ-380 ايرباص) العملاقة التي تعاقدت الخطوط القطرية على شرائها ويتوقع ان تدخل الخدمة مع الانتهاء من مشروع مطار الدوحة الجديد بنهاية عام 2008 وبداية عام 2009 مشيرا الى ان مشروع المطار الجديد يستوعب شركات الشحن والتأمين وكل الخدمات التي تقدم في المطارات الدولية المماثلة بحيث تصبح قطر جسرا يربط بين الشرق والغرب بالاستفادة من موقعها الجغرافي في منتصف الطريق بين الشرق والغرب‚

وعقب استماع المشاركين لعروض المشاريع اقترح محمد راشد سريع الكعبي رئيس لجنة المقاولات بغرفة تجارة وصناعة قطر تنظيم اجتماع ثان للاجابة عن اسئلة واستفسارات الشركات القطرية الراغبة في المشاركة بمشروع مطار الدوحة الدولي‚

وأكد الكعبي ان المشروع يمثل اهمية كبيرة للقطاع الخاص القطري لأنه يستحوذ على 25% من ميزانية الدولة لذلك لابد من الاستماع لوجهة نظر الشركات المحلية وثمن عمران عسة اقتراح الكعبي لاعطاء الفرصة للشركات المحلية للدخول في المشروع الذي تمت تجزئته الى 21 جزءا لهذا الغرض‚

New Doha International Airport

Qatar is to build the New Doha International Airport (NDIA). The airport will be constructed 4km from the existing facility, on a 5,400-acre site. It is being constructed in response to a projected demand for additional international passenger capacity to the region. The current airport handles 4.2 million passengers per year, whereas the new airport will be able to handle 12.5 million per year after the first phase of construction. The first phase will cost $2.5 billion, while phases two and three are projected to cost an additional $5 billion.

The airport is to be constructed near the city of Doha and, when finished, will be approximately two-thirds the size of the city. It is being built for Qatar Civil Aviation Authority (QCAA). During the construction process, the old airport is being expanded and refurbished at a cost of $140 million. This to increase its capacity to 7.2 million passengers per year for the interim period before the new airport takes over.

CONTRACTOR AND CONSTRUCTION
The contract for the first phase of the airport construction and the planning and design phase was awarded to Bechtel Group Inc. The project started in early 2004 with a detailed planning and design phase and Bechtel produced a Master Plan of the new airport. The work is due to continue in 2004 with a massive land reclamation project since over half of the area of the new airport will be constructed on land reclaimed from the sea, 10.9 square miles. The land reclamation is estimated to require over 50 million m³ of 'fill' to complete. When the land reclamation is completed early in 2005 the construction of the first phase of the new airport can begin. The sub-contract for the land reclamation is currently out for tender.

AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION PHASE ONE
The first phase construction of the new airport will include two parallel runways (4,250m and 4,850m) designed specifically to accommodate the new Airbus A380-800 'Super Jumbo'. A three-storey terminal building will be constructed, including 24 contact gates and 140,000m² of floor space, of which 25,000m² will be dedicated as retail space. In addition, there will be seven remote gates. There will be three new major road interchanges to provide access to the new airport from the city and surrounding areas. The airport will have a luxury hotel and a transit hotel. The complex will also include a cargo terminal (750,000t/y), additional hard standing areas for the passenger terminal, hangar space for two A380-800s and three A340s at the same time and a maintenance centre. Finally the airport, which has been described as "a small city within a city" will include a business park, a free trade zone, a courier and mail facility and a general aviation facility.

The national airline Qatar Airways is to relocate its headquarters and training facilities to the new Doha airport, since the airport will become the major 'hub' in the area. The first phase will start properly in 2005 and is due to be completed in late 2008/early 2009. The first phase will allow the airport to service two A380-800 Super Jumbos at the same time. The completion of the first phase is due to coincide with the delivery of two A380-800 aircraft to Qatar Airways. These will be the first two of a fleet of 18 Airbus aircraft, with possibly 16 more to follow at a later date. The fleet will consist of Airbus A380-800, A340-500 and A330-300 aircraft.

AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION PHASES TWO AND THREE
The second phase of construction will include the addition of a further 16 contact gates and an extension of the terminal building to 219,000m². In addition, there will be a suspended monorail system for passenger transit through the terminal. A further luxury hotel will be constructed to accommodate the additional passenger capacity of over 25 million per year passing through the airport. The third phase will include the addition of a further 40 contact gates, which would bring the final total to 80. To accommodate the extra gates, the terminal building will extend to 416,000m² and would be capable of handling over 50 million passengers per year. The projected date for final completion is 2015. When fully completed the new Doha airport will be able to service six A380-800 Super Jumbos simultaneously. The airport will be the first in the world purpose-built to accommodate these aircraft
