The Public Works Authority’s Doha South Sewage Infrastructure Project has won the Engineering News Record (ENR)’s Global Best Project Award in the Wastewater Category, in recognition of its design innovation, outstanding health and safety performance, effective risk management, and implementation of construction best practices.

The award was received by Eng. Khalid Saif Al-Khayareen, Drainage Networks Projects Department Manager, during the ENR’s annual Global Best Projects Awards Ceremony held on 2 October 2019 in New York, USA, in attendance of representative of global best winning projects.

Jacobs (previously CH2M), the Project Management Consultant, and the Joint Venture “Bouygues Travaux Publics” and “UCC”, the project contractor. On this occasion, Eng. Khalid Saif Al Khayareen said: “This award reflects the efforts of all team members to complete this important and unique project, which is part of Qatar’s ambitious plan to provide a sustainable infrastructure of the highest international standards to serve the citizens and residents.”

ENR is an international organisation that is specialised in evaluating engineering projects worldwide, both in the design and construction stages, as well as classifying consulting firms and contractors, through international judges from various countries including the United States, Europe and Asia. The Doha South Sewage Infrastructure Project is one of the key projects implemented by Ashghal as part of its master plan to upgrade Qatar’s drainage network. The project is designed to serve areas in the south of Doha and the expected population growth. It can be linked to future infrastructure projects, and when completed, it will enable the decommissioning of more than twenty old pumping stations currently located in the residential and commercial areas in the south of Doha.

A key component of the project is the gravity based 16-km long Main Trunk Sewer that will link a number of areas in the south of Doha to the sewage network. This will reduce the environmental impacts through the full control of odours in sewage treatment works and conveying system, and reduce other environmental problems arising from sewage overflow.
