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.
