This was revealed at the launch of its Qatar office at an event held in the Radisson Blu Hotel, Doha, according to Trade Arabia news.

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) awarded SSH the contract to design the new Specialist Clinical Centre for Dental, Dermatology and Diabetes Services, on behalf of Hamad Medical Corporation.

The project will have six interconnected buildings consisting of a shared three-level basement covering 64,000 sq m and ground floor plus four upper levels totalling 61,000 square meters.

The facility aims to provide a perfect platform for the development of a new “super-clinic” care facility, said a statement.

Wakrah Mall, by E’EMAR Development & Real Estate Investment, will include retail shopping areas, a hypermarket, restaurants and sports and recreational activities, at the heart of the emergent city of Al Wakrah.

SSH scope of services includes multi-disciplinary design services for the new mall located at the main Wakrah Road, with a built-up area of approximately 50,000 square meters.

CEO Bob Hope said: "It’s an exciting time for SSH. Our business strategy of blending international talent with local and regional expertise is exceeding even our expectations. As a result we are rapidly seeing our regional branches becoming independent, self-sustaining business. We are privileged to be welcomed in Qatar, and to be able to contribute to the fulfilment of the National 2030 Vision, supported by our clients and strategic partners."

COO and Qatar resident director Matthew Squires added: "We successfully gained our A-grade MMUP license whilst in parallel executed a focused marketing plan resulting in the award of these two prestigious projects within a short space of time after entering the market. We will now focus on the successful delivery of these and expanding our pipeline and client engagement plans to play a larger role in the exciting plans for the Qatar market."
