Doha Airport Terminal Extension

Share on:

Qatar Airways at Doha Airport needed a two-storey extension to the existing departures terminal. Building on previous experience gained from similar project work, GHD provided architectural and engineering design services, as well as contract administration and project management services.

The extension was designed and constructed on a fast-track basis, which enabled its completion within just six months. The new section has given Qatar Airways additional gate boarding lounges, a first class lounge and cafeteria, increased check-in area capacity and additional baggage handling systems.

Innovative solutions characterised this project with the adoption of a number of initiatives to meet the deadline. This included working closely with the contractor to procure equipment and materials during the schematic designs and specifying short bored piles and post tensioned floor slabs all of which contributed to a short construction period.



The world's aviation industry is directly impacted by budgetary contraints and the increasing expectations to deliver a safer, faster and enhanced service. The industry continues to examine every step of an asset’s life and its ability to generate revenue, whilst minimising the environmental impact.

Whether your vision is to create access or facilities in a new location, increase capacity and movement efficiency for a hard working local or international hub, enable a fly-in fly-out workforce or improve commercial viability of diverse non-aviation investments, GHD has the skills and experience to deliver valuable solutions. We can assist in exploring resourceful options, and limiting cost, aircraft noise and carbon emissions.
