Ministry of Education and Higher Education Headquarters:
As part of Qatar’s National Vision 2030 to develop a knowledge-based economy, the Ministry of Education and Higher Education aims to develop and improve the education system across Qatar.
To achieve this, we are providing Design and Construction Management Consultancy to support the development and delivery of a new state-of-the-art headquarters for the Ministry of Education and Higher Education located at Al Qutaifah, Doha, Qatar. The headquarters will operate the various departments of the Ministry of Education and Higher Education.
This purpose-built, world-class facility’s design was influenced by traditional local and Islamic architecture, enhanced with modern technology. This traditional style of architecture filters natural
daylight to illuminate the building’s interior. The aluminium sheets forming the facade were fabricated in an Islamic motif style, supported by a cantilevered steel structure.
In total, over 10,000m2 of steel sheeting was used which illuminates at night with custom lighting designed to create a unique effect around the building’s perimeter.
This project has a total built up area of over 61,000m2 and comprises five separate office buildings. It includes an interconnecting pedestrian walkway between each building in addition to car parks, water features, a power substation, and extensive landscaping.
