Change and Development in All Aspects of Life
The State of Qatar is undergoing rapid transformation. To facilitate these advances, it is investing billions of dollars into infrastructure improvement, executing projects across both the public and private sectors. These projects range from constructing roads and buildings to developing ports and refurbishing existing pumping stations.
In January 2011, the Public Works Authority (PWA) awarded Parsons a consultancy services contract for refurbishing and upgrading 22 pumping stations in Doha, Qatar’s capital and most populous city. PWA selected Parsons based on our extensive project and construction management capabilities and our experience handling similar projects. In addition, our capabilities in all of the program’s required engineering disciplines were key to our selection.
Parsons’ role for the program involves performing design reviews and providing construction supervision and overall project management on behalf of PWA. Parsons is also responsible for project controls, as-built and operations/maintenance support, and handover and closeout.
