Infrastructure consultants have a week to submit a tender to work on the surface and groundwater drainage system project for the West Muaither Area of Doha, as issued by Qatar’s department of Infrastructure Affiars.

The wide–ranging services demanded will cover elements of the pre-contract design, a service plan and quantity surveyance.

Work includes geotechnical jobs as required, as well as the preparation of all relevant documents for both the eventual tender process and any environmental investigation that the Ministry of Environment may wish to carry out, according to the public works authority in the gas-rich state, known as Ashghal.

The consultant will also be required to provide a traffic management plan for the bustling southern area of the capital.

Qatar, like Saudi Arabia, has this year announced investment plans to transform its infrastructure. In July research by Business Monitor International indicated that Qatar would outstrip other GCC countries for infrastructure development in 2014 despite a 22% slump in overall construction activity last year.

Last week the World Economic Forum declared Qatar as the most competitive nation in the region, placing it 17th, ahead of Saudi Arabi (21st ) and UAE (26th).

"The country’s comfortable fiscal position will enable it to continue to allocate large sums to the infrastructure sector," the BMI report added.

The drainage project – to close 19th September - is one of a clutch of new tenders that have a deadline in the next few weeks. Other contracts include road maintenance services to outer Doha, which includes an overview of the safety equipment (tender to close 3rd October); site supervision and consultancy for the city’s nine new kindergartens (3rd October); and a similar consultancy/supervision contract for the building of mosques and Imam houses throughout the city (26th September).
