Kingspan Insulated Panels is to provide more than 35km2 of architectural wall panels to New Doha International Airport after winning a contract from RIGIDAL Industries.

The Flintshire, UK based company’s wall panels are destined for the building envelope and sliding doors of the maintenance hangar and are equipped with 100% reliable thermal performance and insulation continuity which contribute towards and lower energy usage and costs.

Kingspan Insulated Panels – the largest subsidiary of the Kingspan Group contributing around 40% of turnover - opened its first base in the region in Dubai, UAE in April. The company has carved a niche as a leading supplier of FIRESafe insulated roof, façade systems, as well as providing an envirocare Technical Services team to support customers.

The company has seen a positive response to its products says general manager for the region, Ali El Zein: “This is a fantastic contract win for Kingspan and confirms that the company’s decision to expand into the Middle East this year has been wise. We look forward to working on the NDIA project and our team is already on the ground ready to go.”

The company refused to disclose the contract value.

Phase 3 of the New Doha airport is currently underway. The scope of work includes construction of terminal extension. The extension will be a five-level structure with a total floor area of 127,000m2. The extension will connect to NDIA's main passenger terminal. A joint venture of Belgian firm Six Construct and the local Midmac Contracting Company are the main contractors.
