Global hotel owner, developer and operator Katara Hospitality announced the awarding of Phase 2 construction works of Katara Towers, Lusail City’s future hospitality landmark, to HBK Contracting, a leading construction firm in the State of Qatar.
The announcement came during a signing ceremony between Katara Hospitality and HBK Contracting, which was assigned to construct the 36-story cross-swords design, MEP (back of the house), and First Fix (front of the house) of Katara Towers.
The signing ceremony took place at The Ritz-Carlton, Doha and was attended by Sheikh Nawaf bin Jassim bin Jabor Al Thani, Chairman of Katara Hospitality and Sheikh Ali bin Hamad K Al Thani, President of HBK Contracting.
