Ras Abu Aboud – The Seventh 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar™ Stadium

Hilson Moran’s Qatar office has played a key role on the design of Qatar’s seventh 2022 FIFA World Cup venue, the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, providing mechanical, electrical and public health (MEP) services as well as sustainability, acoustics, vertical transportation and security consultancy. Using the latest building technologies, the stadium has been designed to be delivered using modular construction.

Due for completion in 2020, the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium has a bold and innovative design concept comprising shipping containers, which are capable of being reassembled in a new location in their entirety or built into numerous small sports and cultural venues. Working closely with the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC), Fenwick Iribarren and Schlaich Bergermann Partners, Hilson Moran is proud to have provided its multi-disciplinary engineering services to help create this lasting sporting legacy in Qatar.

Key to the designs were the sustainable benefits. The modular approach results in less waste and a reduced carbon footprint, as well as a relatively fast build. Thanks to this sustainable approach to the stadium’s construction, Ras Abu Aboud will receive a four-star Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) certification.

Hilson Moran’s Commercial Director Tony Morris comments on the designs:

“The latest stadium demonstrates the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy’s and entire project team’s focus on sustainability. Modular construction is at the forefront of innovation in the built environment and will be showcased on a grand scale at the Ras Abu Aboud Stadium – it has been an honor to be a part of the process”.
