Hill named project manager for Doha resort

Hill International has said that it has secured a contract to provide project management consultancy services for a new resort in Doha, Qatar.

The two-and-a-half-year pact worth $2.3 million has been awarded by Contraco.

To be built on 257 acres of land, the Salwa Resort will feature 362 guest rooms, a water park, marina, dive centre, cinema, retail space, pools and spa.

In addition to the rooms and suites of the main hotel, two small villages with a number of family villas will be developed, said a top official.

“The Salwa Resort is ideally located off of Salwa Road near the Saudi Arabian border and will offer visitors a unique resort experience,” remarked Mohammed Al Rais, the regional president (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group.

“It is poised to be an iconic resort for visitors to Qatar,” he added.

Hill International, with 4,900 professionals in 100 offices worldwide, provides programme management, project management, construction management, construction claims and other consulting services primarily to the buildings, transportation, environmental, energy and industrial markets.

Engineering News-Record magazine recently ranked Hill as the seventh largest construction management firm in the US.
