Welcome to the Qatar Construction Group. This group is for anyone involved in the building and construction industry. It is a forum for individuals involved in re-shaping Doha - contractors, builders, architects, designers and individuals with an interest in construction, both interior and exterior.
The Qatar Construction Group will discuss building materials, installation issues, environmental concerns regarding building, tender issues and architectural finishes. All are welcome to share ideas and propose questions for the benefit of sharing common knowledge.
What are the primary issues (problems) found in Qatar construction? In the U.S., we consider moisture intrusion the primary problem - but I do not believe this could be the primary Qatar concern.
Where are the most failures and what types of constructoin cause the most issues?
I would be very interested in opening a dialog on this topic.
I am doing dissertation on role and significance of health and safety in construction industry for my ongoing course.
I shall oblige and appreciate if some one can forward me relevant literature to endeavor me for writing up my task.I may accmodate/ compensate in lieu of tution fee
Looking forward to your anticipated help and support.

I work in a company that provides noise control solutions, however I have noticed that in the market there is no set standard for noise levels in any level, be it for 5 star hotels or apartments or schools or office buildings.
Why is it that in such a developing nation nobody is concerned about noise issues..?
Recently a client of mine asked me to do something to stop noise coming into her bedroom on the 7th floor from a construction site across the road. She wasnt even able to sleep because of the noise coming in at night..!!
I would like to ask if there is a product specification code in Qatar for certain construction materials.
What i am looking for is the technical specification required for the construction materials to be used in Qatar like the paints for example.
I checked the QCS but was not useful for me because it's a general standards and not firm specifications that shall be in a material so as to be used in Qatar.
we are working in bringing a new brand of paints in Qatar ( an international brand) and we would like to see if there is such code to see whether these paints meets the technical requirments in Qatar or not.
Many thanks to all of you.

The question is: have you any idea if there is a proper word to use to describe the space between two interior doors; such as in older houses where there is a space between the rooms approx. 100cm - I really don't know and can't find it anywhere, is there such a word or am I looking for an imaginary thing?
To all Architects and Interior Designers. There is a request for a gathering of architects and interior designers in Doha to discuss current issues + more. Some topics being suggeted now are "Is Doha Land a Good Thing?", "Architecture in Qatar", "Sustainability", You are all invited to suggest other issues that are of interest to you.
The idea basically is to get together and communicate to discuss our favourite subject: design!
We suggest the first weekend in March - feel free to suggest a venue that is challenging in terms of architecture and design.
