Hamad International Airport - HIAEP16 North Node Lounges, Hotel and Associated Works

CCM s.r.l was awarded as Main Contractor the HIAEP-0016 Project, for the full turnkey fit-out of the North Node Lounges, Hotel and Associated works in June 2020 at Hamad International Airport. A prestigious project and one of the many projects being awarded for the HIA Expansion Programme.

The scope of works included for a Design and Build project where the Lounges were originally designed by Antonio Citterio Patricia Viel and Partners and the Hotel was originally designed by Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK) earlier in 2012. CCM with its Design Subconsultant CUNDALL, revised the design to bring in alignment with current specifications and standards.

CCM engaged itself to deliver all the packages within the North Node Lounges and Hotel as the Main Contractor and engaged major subcontractors for Specialist works.

The areas which are a part of the works included;

1.Ground floor – Hotel Storage, Office and Canteen

2.Ground floor – Activity Nodes 7 & 8

3.First Floor – Hotel Lobby / Reception

4.Mezzanine Floor – Airline Lounges

5.3rd Floor – Hotel Guestrooms and Service Rooms

6.4th Floor – Hotel Guestrooms and Service Rooms

7.5th Floor – Addition & Modification to Mechanical / Electrical Systems

8.Roof – Additional Emergency Escape Catwalks, Escape Hatches and the like.

The scale of the works required, and the location of the works created a challenge for the project delivery. Being both within an existing operational Airport but further at a location where other major contract packages are being executed to make ready the Airport for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Furthermore, the Project was being delivered at the peak of the COVID 19 Pandemic. The Pandemic creating a global disruption of supply chains and manpower as well as the need to establish robust Safety practices to mitigate the risks of working in close quarters.

CCM s.r.l began the gargantuan task in June 2020 and successfully delivered the project ahead of the FIFA World Cup in August 2022.
