Train4TradeSkills News: UK firms bid to be a part of Qatar 2022 World Cup
Posted by Train4tradeSkills
Mace has emerged as one of the favourites to build stadiums and infrastructure in Qatar ahead of the World Cup, which is due to be staged in the country in 11 years time.
The UK contractors are one of the five companies battling it out for the £5.2 billion contract build 12 new stadiums and an estimated 90 training facilities in Qatar ahead of the World Cup.
Competing with Mace for the chance to win the huge contract for Qatar 2022 is UK company Arup, who are joint-bidding with US-firm C2HM Hill, and American construction companies Aecom, Turner International and WorleyParsons.
London Olympics the “blueprint for the construction industry”
Mace are basing their plans on the London Olympics, and using that pedigree in the hope it will win them further work.
The work on the 2012 Olympics in London has been immortalised online and been transformed into an online Olympic learning legacy portal and hailed as the “blueprint for the construction industry”.
The website will act as an online library for contractors to refer the documents to base future projects on. The Olympic Delivery Authority chairman John Armitt said:
“The learning legacy framework is the embodiment of a new benchmark that has been created in delivering Europe’s largest construction project to the ultimate deadline and within budget.”
“The scale and speed of the coordinated UK effort to build the venues and infrastructure is unprecedented and the knowledge and lessons gained during construction will both benefit the industry and act as a catalyst for inward investment.”
