Netherlands-based Arcadis has secured a €20m contract from Qatar Rail Company to provide architectural, branding, design and construction consultancy services for the Gold Line metro line in Doha.

Netherlands-based Arcadis has secured a €20m contract from Qatar Rail Company to provide architectural, branding, design and construction consultancy services for the Gold Line metro line in Doha.

The Dutch engineering and consultancy firm is already providing similar services for Doha Metro’s Red Line South.

For the Gold Line project, Arcadis will work on behalf of the contractor, ALYSJ, a joint venture of Aktor, Larsen & Toubro, Yapi Merkezi, STFA Group and Al Jaber Engineering.

The Gold Line is one of four lines being developed in the first phase of Doha’s 354km metro network and is claimed to be the largest single construction package on Doha Metro, crossing the city from east to west.

"The Gold Line is one of four lines being developed in the first phase of Doha’s 354km metro network."

This €3.2bn contract includes 32km of bored tunnel, along with 13 new underground stations equipped with high-end architectural finishes and mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) systems.

The project will also include construction of service buildings, tunnels and entrances, in addition to landscaping, traffic and utility works.

The scope of work for Arcadis will include the detailed design and co-ordination of architectural finishes for ten of the 13 underground stations.

Work also includes providing the design of MEP, structures and landscape, as well as construction support and consultancy services.

The remaining three stations on the Gold Line have been priced separately and may be assigned to Arcadis in the future.

According to the company, the design phase is expected to take 12 months and construction support an additional 24 months.
