Jun 05, 2013

Byrne Looby and their local partner, ASCO, are participating in the tender process for 4 infrastructure packages on the multibillion (Qatari Riyal) Inner Doha Resewerage Implementation Strategy (IDRIS) programme. Byrne Looby and ASCO have partnered to serve the Qatari market and are using their professional engineering experience on large scale projects, combined with the expertise of their staff to participate in and tender for projects such as IDRIS.

The tender process for IDRIS requires the formation of a team composed of a prime contractor, a lead partner, a design engineer and a Quality Control Engineers (QCE). BLP-ASCO joined the teams of reputable local and international companies to tender for the role of Quality Control Engineers (QEC). The QEC will be responsible for implementation of the Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) program, including detailed submittal review, materials testing and full time on-site inspection of all construction activities.

The IDRIS programme is being implemented in order to eliminate serious public health issues caused by foul sewage flooding and to accommodate economic and planned growth for over an additional million people in Qatar. The project is being tendered by Qatar’s Public Works Authority, Ashghal.

Byrne Looby and ASCO were recently awarded a major Treated Sewage Effluent project for Qatar Petroleum and are eager to be part of future major infrastructure commissions in Qatar.
