Al Rayyan Stadium’s unique design has been confirmed as meeting mandated sustainability requirements under the Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS), which is administered in Qatar by the Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD).
Commenting on the milestone, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy’s (SC) Al Rayyan Project Manager, Abdulla al-Fehani, said, “We are proud to receive the four-star GSAS rating for Al Rayyan Stadium’s design. This major achievement demonstrates that we are delivering on our commitment to sustainability and green building.”
The four-star design rating was awarded by letter of conformance. The final certificate will be awarded once the stadium has been constructed and undergone further inspections.
Engineer Bodour al-Meer, the SC’s Sustainability & Environmental Manager, said, “The next step is to complete a series of five third-party audits to check the construction meets the design proposals.
“We look forward to this stadium following in the footsteps of Khalifa International Stadium, which was the first tournament venue anywhere in the world to receive GSAS certification.”
Located approximately 20km west of Doha, the development of Al Rayyan Stadium is being overseen by joint venture main contractors Al Balagh Trading & Contracting Co. W.L.L. and Larsen & Toubro Limited. Louis Berger is the construction supervision consultant, while AECOM is the project management consultant.
More than 5,000 people currently work at the stadium, which will host matches up to the quarter-finals stage in 2022.
Construction is advancing rapidly on-site, where installation of the roof modules has been completed. The steel for the roof and upper tier was delivered from China by Jing Gong Group, the company that is fabricating and installing the roof structure.
Post-2022, almost half of the stadium’s 40,000 modular seats will be removed and given to football development projects abroad. The smaller post-tournament arena will enable popular QNB Stars League side Al Rayyan to maintain the intense passion its fans are famous for.
