Hill International to Support the Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company to Realize the Abraj Al Tahwiliya High-Rise Development Project in the Doha Corniche

May 7, 2019

PHILADELPHIA and DOHA, Qatar, May 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it was selected by the Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC) to provide Project Management services for the construction of the Abraj Al Tahwiliya (QIMC Tower West Bay Project).

Designed as the centerpiece of the West Bay, the three mixed-use, high-rise towers will house a luxury 5 star hotel and residences, office and commercial spaces, five levels of retail area, and four basement levels of parking and back of house services. The project also includes adjacent areas set aside for landscaping and other improvements. The development totals approximately 120,000 SM, with the tallest of the project’s towers topping out at 185 meters.

Established in 1990, QIMC is a leading development company in Qatar. QIMC’s projects have traditionally involved industrial facilities, but the company recognized the potential of the site in the Corniche area of the West Bay. QIMC will also locate its new headquarters in the Abraj Al Tahwiliya.

To support the project, Hill International will provide construction management, contracts administration, project controls, document control, QA/QC support, and other Project Management services. “We committed a team more than ready to help QIMC realize Abraj Al Tahwiliya as intended, on-time and on-budget,” said Karim Yazbek, Hill’s Vice President and Country Manager. “The Doha Corniche is a unique destination, one with national significance, and a key driver in Qatar’s tourism industry. This project represents a special opportunity to exponentially raise the profile of the Corniche even further. The Hill team understands these stakes, and has the right skills and experience to make the Towers a reality.”
