Lusail Real Estate Development Company (LREDC) announced Tuesday that the German consultancy firm Dorsch Gruppe has been awarded the site construction supervision consultancy services for their flagship Lusail City development.

Dorsch Gruppe will be responsible for the construction supervision consultancy services for eleven multi-task construction packages including a variety of engineering disciplines.

The Letter of Conditional Award was signed on March 28th 2012, at the Lusail headquarters in Qatar by Lusail Real Estate Development Company CEO eng., Essa Mohammed Ali Kaldari, and the president of Dorsch Gruppe,  Olaf Hoffman.

Lusail Real Estate Development Company , a subsidiary of Qatari Diar Real Estate Investment Company, was established in September 2008 and is executing the development, construction and ongoing operations of the Lusail City development project.

Lusail City is a development of the State of Qatar, master-planned by Qatari Diar and developed by LREDC.

LREDC hopes the development will become a “unique, state-of-the-art” city in Qatar, the region, and worldwide.

The Lusail City development project is one of the largest developments being undertaken around the world, over an area of 38km ², where more than 450,000 people will live and work.

It will encompass new residential, commercial, and retail opportunities, and also facilitate community needs, complete with schools, medical facilities, entertainment and shopping centers.

In announcing the agreement, LREDC CEO eng. Essa Kaldari said: “Awarding this prestigious and unique project to Dorsch Gruppe Supervision Consultant Services was done after careful consideration and evaluation of the project's need for a consultant committed to the successful and timely delivery of the contract.

“Considering the significance of Lusail City and the scale of work required, we found Dorsch Gruppe to be a suitable partner for LREDC,” he added.

LREDC awarded Dorsch Gruppe the contract after a detailed evaluation and selection process that included a number of international competitors in the consultancy field.

According to LREDC, Dorsch Gruppe was selected because of their reputation for high-quality work and timely delivery.

In response to being awarded this contract, the president of Dorsch Gruppe Olaf Hoffman said: “First-class technical solutions, consistency of costs and adherence to schedules have always been our goal for the planning and implementation of every one of our construction projects. We will supervise the project locally with our on-site experts from our Doha office.”

Hoffman confirmed his company's commitment to the project by adding, "This partnership represents an opportunity to expand our expertise in Qatar, as we continue our work in line with Qatar's National Vision 2030."
