Hochtief Vicon wins Qatar BIM contract
Al Khayyat Contracting & Trading is main contractor on project
Hochtief Vicon has won a contract to deliver BIM (building information modelling) management and BIM services for a traffic control project in Doha.
ViCon’s scope of work will include BIM Management, 3D modeling, 3D design coordination, 3D quantity take-off and 4D visualization.
The contract was awarded by Al Khayat Contracting & Trading, which is the main contractor for the project.
ViCon had already supported KCT with a 4D movie for its successful tender for the project’s execution phase.
The Traffic Control Center project, which has started in May 2014, is part of a 409 hectare development for Qatar’s Internal Security Forces.
As part of the project, a new camp facility at Al Duhail will be built on the northern outskirts of Doha.
The ISF project will be large in scale, featuring more than 330 individual building units made up of several different types of purpose-built facilities.
