The Austrian Trade Commission discusses the contribution made by the Formwork Experts towards Qatar’s remarkable development

With over 130 years of experience, Doka Group popularly known as the “Formwork Experts” have been valuable partners for many companies worldwide in their quest to stay ahead of the continuous evolution of the construction Industry.

Since its establishment in 2004, Doka Qatar has been a valuable partner in the quest to keep pace with the phenomenal growth rate and continuous evolution of the construction industry. Experience counts and Doka has become a byword for safety, innovation and capability of formwork technology. Over the past years Doka formworks have made a great contribution towards the country’s remarkable development. The very first project utilizing Doka products and expertise was completed in 1985. The two 40 m high Water Towers in Doha and in Al Wakra were raised from the foundations up to the water tank with Doka climbing formwork solution. Doka engineers delivered a combination of the timber- beam formwork Top 50 and climbing formwork to enable fast and efficient construction workflow. Doka has also been given the job of providing formwork solution for the Commercial Bank Office Tower, Al Dafna Towers (now Ezdan Towers), Beverly Hills Towers or QIPCO Twin Towers. The Formwork Experts have also partnered in the construction of the Khalifa Stadium.

Besides the products, services also play a very important role for Doka. Due to the comprehensive knowledge gained in projects all over the world, Doka experts contribute right from the tendering phase by drawing up a detailed formwork concept that complies with the required deadlines and costs. Doka customers profit from accurate planning, thorough on-site and after sales support. “Being always within reach and ready to supply immediately our customer with the most cost-effective formwork solutions and services, has been the key to our success and long-lasting business relationships”, explains Jenoe Rulff, Doka Qatar General Manager. “We have experienced engineers who can advise customers the right formwork systems for any kind of project application and are able to work out formwork drawings for complete Doka product range, ”adds Wolfgang Berger, Technical Manager of Doka Qatar. In general, Doka Qatar team assists the customers from the RFQ (Request for Quotation) stage up to the after sales service. What is more, the availability of the materials that the customers need at anytime is reserved in a large size warehouse and yard for immediate dispatch to the sites.

Currently the company is supplying formwork for large-scale projects in the construction engineering sector and for infrastructure projects. These include Sidra Medical and Research Centre, Musheireb (previously Dohaland), Barwa Financial District, Lusail Development and more. Doka formworks are utilized at the terminals, elevated roadway and other related structures of New Doha International Airport, as well as supplied to water and sewerage projects of Ashghal (Public Works Authority) and Kharamaa (General Electricity and Water Corporation).
