Ooredoo will provide telecom infrastructure and a range of state-of-the-art facilities for a new blue-collar accommodation complex being built by Qatar-based real estate giant Barwa Group, it was announced yesterday.
With a built-up area of 735,039sq m, the complex will include 3,170 units as well as retail shops and mosques. The development will stand on a total of 1,197,114sq m of land.
The complex is designed to give more space and privacy to residents, with a designated yard to each building. The first phase of units will be available for rent starting June 1 this year and is expected to accommodate around 33,500 labourers. The telecom infrastructure will include the first fibre network in such an accommodation complex in Qatar, an Ooredoo retail shop, Ooredoo network connectivity, an Ooredoo self-service machine and several other day-to-day services.
Both Barwa Group and Ooredoo cite the commendable contribution blue-collar workers are making to the growth of Qatar’s economy and to Qatar’s Vision 2030 as a key motivation behind the development of the complex and its facilities.
Manar Khalifa al-Muraikhi, director PR and Corporate Communications at Ooredoo, said of the development: “We are proud to be providing telecoms infrastructure and facilities for this accommodation complex, and we look forward to being able to service the needs of the residents through the many Ooredoo capabilities there.”
Yousuf Ahmad al-Binali, group chief of Corporate Operations at Barwa Real Estate Company said: “We maintain high levels of services provided to our clients. Hence this partnership with Ooredoo to enable labourers to stay in touch with their families at all times, and benefit from the great power of everything Ooredoo has to offer.”
