Qatar-based Khayyat Contracting & Trading (KCT) has completed construction of a new five-star property in the West Bay district of Doha.

The 186-room Hilton Hotel Doha has been completed in a span of three years right from planning to delivery.

Erga and DWP Interior have designed the project, which is distributed over three basements levels and 14 storeys, including ground.

Khayyat Contracting & Trading managing director Moataz Al Khayyat said: "The early phase of this project was particularly challenging as we had a limited footprint to work on in terms of both storage and laydown area, something that was exacerbated during the shift changes that included 1,100 people working in two shifts around the clock.

"The remainder of the work has gone very smoothly and we look forward to the Hilton being able to welcome their first guests in a few months from now."

"This being said, the remainder of the work has gone very smoothly and we look forward to the Hilton being able to welcome their first guests in a few months from now."

Featuring 24,000m² of space, the new Hilton Double Tree Hotel stretches 75m up into the Doha skyline, featuring a Sky Bar closely accompanied by a pool deck and Shisha Lounge.
