World Cup stadium deal also for HBK

July 2018

HBK Contracting Company has been awarded the main works contract for Ras Abu Aboud Stadium in Doha, one of the major venues of the 2022 Fifa World Cup.

The 40,000-seat facility will be built using modular building blocks, thus making it the first fully demountable Fifa stadium in history, says the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), the organisation responsible for delivering the infrastructure need for the mega event.

Located on a 450,000-sq-m waterfront site with exceptional views over Doha’s skyline, the stadium will host matches up to the quarter-finals in 2022, it states.

Work on the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium started in late 2017, with Time Qatar as the project manager. Site clearance and demolition, as well as establishment of site facilities, were recently completed,  the SC adds. 

The main works are scheduled for completion by 2020. The stadium design was launched in 2017.

HKB Contracting was established in 1970 and offers a wide range of services including construction and maintenance of buildings, hospitals, high-rise towers, water and sewerage networks, water reservoirs, waste treatment plants, pumping stations, roads, bridges, and civil engineering works. It is working on a number of projects in Qatar including the Al Wakrah Stadium, yet another Fifa World Cup venue, and Doha Metro (Green Line).
