Work set to start on Qatar's diamond-shaped World Cup stadium

Construction on future World Cup venue the Qatar Foundation Stadium is expected to begin soon, with a contractor reportedly now attached to the project.

According to Arabian Business, Cyprus-based engineering firm Joannou & Paraskevaides (J&P) has been awarded the contract to build the 40,000-capacity venue, which will host games at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The stadium has been designed by Fenwick Iribarren Architects, who have taken inspiration from traditional Islamic architecture. The facade of the diamond-shaped ground features geometrical patterns that filter light into the facility – with colours and patterns changing as the position of the sun changes throughout the day.

The venue will be the principle sporting complex in Doha’s expanding Education City district. It can be configured into a 25,000-capacity athletics stadium when required. In addition to its main pitch it hosts indoor swimming, tennis and multipurpose sports pavilions.

The Qatar Foundation Capital Projects Directorate and Astad Project Management are overseeing the development of the stadium, and an associated health and wellness centre.

According to local media, construction is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.

Last month, Larsen & Toubro, the largest construction firm in India, won the contract to build the Al Rayyan Stadium World Cup venue.

Meanwhile, the redevelopment of the existing Khalifa Stadium is expected to reach completion by the end of 2016 – making it the first of the 2022 World Cup venues to open to the public.
