Philadelphia, Pennsylvania & Doha, Qatar (May 07, 2019)—Hill International, construction risk management company, has announced that it was selected by the Qatar Industrial Manufacturing Company (QIMC) to provide project management services for the construction of the Abraj Al Tahwiliya (QIMC Tower West Bay Project).
Designed as the centerpiece of the West Bay, the three mixed-use, high-rise towers will house a luxury five-star hotel and residences, office and commercial spaces, five levels of retail area, and four basement levels of parking and back of house services. The project also includes adjacent areas set aside for landscaping and other improvements. The development totals approximately 120,000 square meters, with the tallest of the project’s towers topping out at 185 meters.
Established in 1990, QIMC is a development company in Qatar.

To support the project, Hill International will provide construction management, contracts administration, project controls, document control, quality assurance/quality control support, and other project management services.
“We committed a team more than ready to help QIMC realize Abraj Al Tahwiliya as intended, on-time and on-budget,” said Karim Yazbek, Hill’s vice president and country manager. “The Doha Corniche is a unique destination, one with national significance, and a key driver in Qatar’s tourism industry. This project represents a special opportunity to exponentially raise the profile of the Corniche even further. The Hill team understands these stakes and has the right skills and experience to make the Towers a reality.”
