Hamad International Airport
Project Value – AUD$1.34bn
The New Doha International Airport was constructed under world-class engineering standards and required meticulous planning and precision programming.
Gamuda’s role in the project was to lead a consortium of experienced builders and engineers to complete the detailed design, procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning of airfield facilities capable of accommodating the latest widebody aircrafts.
The works included two parallel runways (asphalt), three parallel taxiways (asphalt), twelve aircraft parking aprons (concrete), remote parking bays, drainage works, Airfield Ground Lighting (AGL) facilities complete with four sub-stations, two tunnels, three detention ponds, 75 linear kilometre of Glass Fibre Reinforced Pipe (GFRP) network of drainage pipes and other related facilities.
The first runway is 4,850m x 60m and is one of the top ten longest runways in the world. The second runway is 4,250m x 20m. Four asphalt batch plants were established on-site, each with a production of 320T per hour, meaning that at peak, 10,000T of flexible pavement was laid daily.
The joint venture was led by Gamuda employees at Project Director and Project Manager level, with Gamuda’s own systems, processes and procedures also adopted for the work.
