The 49th International Engineering Insurance Association (IMIA) Conference has commenced in Doha, with a delegation invited to visit Khalifa International Stadium construction site, presently being transformed into a modern stadium for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Redeveloped from an old and existing stadium by Midmac Contracting Qatar and the Energy Centre by Galfar Al-Misnad Engineering and Contracting, the project is part of the Aspire Zone Foundation, which will involve the transformation of the old stadium to a multi-sport state-of-the-art facility.

The stadium will host the 2019 IAAF World Championships in Athletics and it will be one of the venues of the FIFA 2022 World Cup as part of the SC programme.

Accompanying the delegates, Mansoor Al Muhannadi, project manager of the stadium, showed them the progress of work on the site.

Major works are completed, including the new arch that will support the new east wing roof and the project is on schedule.

The premier air cooling system of the stadium impressed the delegates as did the excellence of the safety measures that have been implemented.

When completed, the new Khalifa Stadium precinct will include a retail area, VIP /corporate zones that will be linked to the new Qatar Olympic and Sport Museum.

In addition to Khalifa Stadium, the energy centre will serve other Aspire Zone venues.
