Bin Samikh Tower (Melia Hotel) | 40 fl | COM

Hill wins Doha tower deal
Doha : Thu, 22 Mar 2007


Hill International has won a contract from Tanmiyat Real Estate to provide project management services for Bin Samikh Tower in Doha, Qatar.

The two-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately QR9.0 million ($2.5 million).

The 73-storey skyscraper will feature 240 five-star hotel suites and 170 residential apartments. Construction will begin in April 2007 with an estimated completion date of April 2009. The total project value is estimated at QR500 million ($137 million), said an official spokesman.

'Travel to Doha is increasing every year,' said president of Hill's Project Management Group (International) Raouf S Ghali.

'The impressive Bin Samikh Tower will fulfill a need for hotel accommodations and have a strong impact on the global perception of the city as a business and resort destination,' Ghali added.

Hill International, with 1,400 employees in 60 offices worldwide, provides programme management, project management, construction management, and construction claims services.

Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the 17th largest construction management firm in the US. For more information on Hill, please visit their website at www.hillintl.com

yes it's Barjeel Tower, it reached the 15th floor last time I saw it!
Actually the Bin Samikh design is really confusing to me! What is that thing in the middle? a tree? lool. And I dont understand what's that cylinder on the right side, does it start from the middle? Would really like to see other angles!

It does look rather confusing! I think its supposed to be a garden or terrace with swimming pool in it.
