Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) has been officially recognized for two of its high caliber super structures by the 2016 MEED Quality Awards for project design and development.
Among seven other Qatari project winners, QF was awarded, ‘Residential Project of the Year’ for its male and female student housing, while ‘Building Project of the Year’ was clinched by the new QF Headquarters.
Participants were evaluated by an esteemed judging panel that assessed entries on excellence in design, construction, and engineering, as well as accomplishments in sustainability and contributions to the local economy.
Last year, Qatar Faculty of Islamic Studies (QFIS) won the award for the ‘MEED Quality Project of the Year’, as well as the ‘UrbaCon Trading & Contracting Social Infrastructure Project of the Year’.
Additionally, the Energy Management System (Solar Micro Grid Project), developed by QF in cooperation with Green Gulf Inc., was recognized as a national winner under the category of ‘Ramboll Sustainable Project of the Year’.
