Barwa City – Doha
The new district of Barwa City is located just outside the heart of Doha, and comprises 128 apartment buildings with 6,000 apartments, and 1,024 studio units.
The vision for Barwa City was to provide 25,000 families with a self-contained ‘city’ spread over 2.7 million square metres that included schools, hospitals, mosques, parks, shopping complexes, education institutes, health facilities and all the required amenities.
This flagship building project in Doha, Barwa City was completed in two phases – residential and then commercial. RAK Ceramics already had a proven track record of supplying high quality tiling solutions to other large building projects throughout the GCC region and was therefore selected by Bilfinger Berger Construction as the preferred supplier. Using a wide range of gres porcelain and ceramics, particularly chosen for their suitability in such a modern urban design, through our trade partners Nabina Ceramics, Doha we supplied the largest quantity of tiles ever for a single project in the Middle East.
