As chairman of HBK Contracting, Sheikh Ali Bin Hamad Al Thani is head of one of the largest civil construction outfits in Qatar.

With roots stretching back to 1970, the contractor has completed numerous high-profile projects for clients including Qatar’s Public Works Authority, Ashghal, Qatar Rail, Qatar Petroleum (QP), Msheireb Properties, and Kahramaa. The company has also supported construction at the Doha New Port Project.

The company’s ongoing projects include substructure and basement works at the $53m (QAR193m) Lusail Katara Towers, the construction of the $634m (QAR2.31bn) Mega Reservoir PRPS 2 Umm Slal, and the design and construction of lateral interceptor sewers for a $160m (QAR582.6m) Ashghal project.

Sheikh Ali’s team is also continuing to support the development of Doha Metro on behalf of client Qatar Rail. HBK is currently working on a design-and-build (D&B) contract for Package 4 of the metro system’s Green Line, which includes underground works from the planned Msheireb Station to Al Rayyan Stadium. The value of this project is almost $2.5bn (QAR9bn).

Elsewhere for Qatar Rail, the contractor has been enlisted to conduct enabling works for the Qatar Railway Project (Q-Rail), which will ultimately form part of the region-wide GCC Railway Network.
