International construction services provider Hochtief has had a presence in Qatar since 2006. The company is headquartered in Doha, Qatar. In April 2010, Hochtief Construction entered into a JV with the Lusail Real Estate Development Company, a subsidiary of state-owned Qatari Diar.
This JV provides planning and construction services not just in Qatar, but also for the foreign export market. At present its main project in the Emirate is the development of a brand-new city, Lusail. Due for completion in 2020, the city is designed to accommodate 200,000 people. Hochtief is also the single-biggest shareholder in the Habtoor Leighton Group.
