Qatari Diar are developers of the scheme, with Multiplex engaged as Main Contractors for phase 4. Eric Parry were architects, with whom FMDC have a long-standing relationship, collaborating on many buildings in the past 10 years. Our appointment was direct with the developer in the early design stages, which was then novated across to Multiplex for delivery, which included many factory and site inspections. FMDC were also appointed in a separate CMT role, working for Qatari Diar, to monitor build quality and to assess compliance with the specification and design intent, during the construction phase.
Key subcontractors included Szerelmey (hand-set stone and brick), Decomo (stone faced precast), GIG (glazing and windows), Edmonds (entrance screens and canopies) and CMF (balustrades above ground floor).
The natural stone employed in the elevation was a Portuguese limestone, with more information available in the stone case study section of the website. Building images are by Dirk Lindner Photography.
