Ahmed Abdulrazaq

Executive VP, Samsung C&T
Sachin Kerur
Abdullatif Al Fozan

Ahmad Abdulrazaq is an executive VP and head of the high-rise and complex building division at Samsung C&T in South Korea – the company which was responsible for building the structural and foundation systems for Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

He joined the firm in 2004 from Chicago-based architectural practice Skidmore, Owings & Merrill – the practice which also designed the Burj Khalifa.

Samsung C&T has developed a reputation for tackling challenging jobs – it built the world’s biggest independent power plant, at Qurrayah in Saudi Arabia, and is part of a consortium that has just won a $1.4bn deal to deliver the two major station hubs for Doha’s new Metro system in Qatar – the Mhseireb Downtown Doha station through which all three lines will run, and the Education City station that will serve as the link to Qatar’s long-distance rail network.

Meanwhile, its MEP division – headed locally by vice-president Fuad Habayeb, - already has experience of delivering metro projects in cities including Seoul and Hong Kong, so is likely to play a part in the delivery of some of the many mass transit projects expected to launch in leading GCC cities over the coming months and years.
