The Public Works Authority Ashghal organised a site visit to Northern Area full roads and infrastructure project in Al Ebb and Lebaib to support students of a Master Degree research for Qatar University. The students are utilising Ashghal’s lean construction journey as a case study. Ahsghal is pioneering this initiative in Qatar at a large scale to deliver more value for the customer and contractors by improving project delivery performance.
During the site visit, the students engaged with the site team, getting their feedback and visited the Project Performance Centre, now a requirement in all of Ashghal’s enhanced contracts. This is a space where collaborative planning and stand-up meetings take place, and it provides the project ‘status at a glance’.
Ashghal’s Technical Office and the Roads Projects Department (RPD) are supporting the students by sharing details of the enhancement journey to date, including lean road map and training plans, encouraging academic and industry knowledge share and localisation of employment (“Qatarisation”).
