The first luxury boutique hotel in Doha, the W Doha Hotel, is a 26-storey iconic structure in the heart of the city’s fast-growing West Bay business district on the Arabian Gulf.

Owned by Al Jaidah Group in partnership with the global luxury hotel group Starwood, which owns W Hotels, the structure has been designed in the shape of a giant ‘W’.

The design was made possible because the tendons used in CCL’s post-tensioning systems can accommodate irregular grids and can be laid out to suit any geometry, including curves. This provides clients with greater flexibility of design and helps to ensure a rapid construction program.

With an all-glass facade, this intricately designed hotel covers 73,000 m2 and has 29 guest rooms and suites, 154 luxury serviced residences, six world-class restaurants, a poolside shisha lounge, a champagne bar, 1,000 m2 of meeting and events space, and luxury retail outlets.

Based on CCL’s outstanding reputation, Brookfield Multiplex Medgulf, the main contractor, commissioned CCL to deliver the post-tensioning element of this project. Having previously worked together on other major developments in Dubai, the contractor made CCL their first choice for the W Doha Hotel commission.
