Wrightstyle, one of Europe’s leading suppliers of steel and aluminium glazing systems, is supplying specialist systems for three flagship projects in Doha, Qatar, underlining the company’s international reputation.
Wrightstyle is supplying to Aluminium Technology Auxiliary Industries WWL (ALUTEC), Qatar’s largest aluminium and glazing company, and to Fensys Middle East Doors and Windows LLC, a market leader in the supply of both internal and external systems, based in Abu Dhabi.
The first project is for an extensive upgrading of Al Wakra Hospital, one of Qatar’s top hospitals with over 200 beds and nearly 3,000 staff.
The 130,000m² Al Wakra Hospital is managed by the Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar’s leading not-for-profit healthcare provider, which also manages the country’s ambulance service.
Wrightstyle supplied a number of products and systems, including fire-rated curtain walling, doors and internal screens.
The second project, also in partnership with ALUTEC, is the supply of 60min fire-rated stainless-steel doors for the Westin Doha Hotel & Spa, which will be managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.
Set in the Central Business District and due to open in 2015, the 372-room luxury hotel will include a man-made beach, wave pool, rivers and a waterfall.
The third contract, for Fensys, is the supply of ten fully fabricated 90/90 stainless steel windows, for Education City, Doha, one of the world’s first ‘multiversities’ that comprises campuses of US, UK and French universities, as well as a number of research and scientific centres of excellence.
The contract is for the facility’s central plant, whose primary function is the supply of air conditioning for the enormous 2,500 acre establishment and its 1,300 students, drawn from 70 nationalities.
“These contracts underline the international dimension of this specialist market and how we have built an international reputation for the design and fabrication of integrated glass and frame systems,” said Lee Coates, technical director for Wrightstyle.
“The Fensys contract was particularly challenging, because of the large profile sizes and the demanding specification for 90 minutes integrity and insulation.”
