Doha Metro - Major Stations / Metro
The future Doha Metro system of Qatar will include two most emblematic stations - Msheireb and Education City. The Msheireb station will be located in the heart of downtown Doha, and be the Qatari capital’s leading metro station. The station in Education City on the outskirts of Doha, which planned to be a center for educational excellence in the Persian Gulf region, will connect the metro system with a regional railway.
Bexel is participating in the tendering stage for these two stations as a BIM specialist for Drake & Scull Rail, where our team conducted an in-depth quantity analysis of MEP works from 3D BIM model supplied by the Client – Qatar Rail. MEP model elements were categorized by diverse criteria such as zone, building, spatial structure, work type etc. We were tasked with the design review along with clash detection analysis, clash reports and visualisation from the 3D BIM model. A 4D construction simulation, based on the proposed construction schedule, was used to review the current schedule and provide guidelines on viable improvements, as per tendering requirements.
