Ashghal continues to have a major forward pipeline of projects, and has introduced new initiatives including Constructing Excellence in Qatar and a set of Construction Enhancements for projects within its Roads Projects Department.
This event will present these initiatives and focus particularly on Ashghal’s implementation of lean construction, which began with pilot studies in 2017 and moved to the next level with their inclusion in the new contracts from autumn 2018 onwards.
