Ashghal has hosted a group of faculty and students from Columbia University, USA, giving them access to some of the country’s top construction projects. 

The group visited Ashghal’s headquarters and selected project sites to share knowledge and discussions with leading Ashghal executives.

As part of the visit, the group went on a site visit to witness first-hand some of Ashghal’s key construction projects, including Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City and F Ring Road developments.

During the visit, the group was briefed on these major infrastructure projects and gained on-ground experience in knowing the extent and volume of them.

In response to a request from the Global Leaders in Construction Management Research Group (GLCM), Ashghal’s President, HE Eng. Nasser bin Ali Al Mawlawi hosted a delegation from the Department of Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Columbia University.

The group met key Ashghal executives including Eng. Mawlawi, president of Ashghal; Meshal Al-Hitmi, shared services affairs director; Saif Al-Kaabi, human resources manager; and Abdulla Saad Al Saad, public relations and communications manager.

Professor Ibrahim Odeh, director of the GLCM, thanked the president for giving him and the students the opportunity to witness some of the most significant construction projects in the world.

He also expressed his gratitude for the hospitality of Ashghal throughout the visit.
