About the event

Dr. Alexandre Amato and Steven Humphrey will be discussing the below:
  1. The existing building stock in Qatar is probably large enough to accommodate existing and foreseeable demand.
  2. Most of all the large-scale infrastructure developments will have been mostly completed by 2022.
  3. There is likely to be a considerable hiatus after this in construction industry activity.
  4. Is this not an opportunity to reform the construction sector along very different lines than its current configuration?
  5. Much more activity around Facilities and Asset Management - much more emphasis on retro-fitting (some really extensive projects - stripping the building back to the structure) and upgrading both buildings and neighbourhoods. A lot more emphasis on 'smart-buildings and cities' so upgrading services will be very important.
  6. The sector itself will be required to be much more sustainable - zero-waste to landfill etc.
  7. Much more emphasis on retraining and reshaping best practice so education plays a big part.
  8. The development of MMC and extensive use of prefabrication and site assembly.
  9. Development of BIM and Lean construction practices.
  10. Finally, the associated construction materials and products manufacturing sector in Qatar is stimulated and developed by the above changes to the sector to produce truly sustainable materials and products.
