ATHENS, Greece, Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Constructed by Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC), Msheireb Station has been awarded two prestigious Green Building certifications: LEED Gold and GSAS 5 stars. Msheireb Station, the cornerstone of Doha Metro the new state-of-the-art subway network that is currently under construction in Qatar, opened its doors in May 2019. The Doha Metro is designed to forever change transportation in the peninsula and support future growth in time for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, which Qatar is hosting. Msheireb Station is one of the world's biggest metro stations and a major interchange where all three Doha Metro lines (Red, Green and Gold) will connect.
The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) green building program, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is the preeminent program for the design, construction, maintenance and operations of high-performance green buildings. The Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS) is the first performance-based system in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, developed for rating green buildings and infrastructures.
The dual Green Building certification awarded to Msheireb Station: GSAS 5 Stars (in design and build under railways scheme) and LEED Gold (LEED 2009 for new construction) is a significant milestone as the subway station has achieved the highest GSAS rate for a non-residential building in Qatar and becomes the first LEED Gold underground metro station in the world.
Msheireb Station was awarded these sustainability certificates for implementing strategies in: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection, cultural and economic value and innovation in design.
The advanced Green Building targets, the jobsite's inner-city position, along with the project's complex structural design placed high demands on the execution of the construction work. CCC's project teams providing management, technical, and construction expertise ensured that the ambitious infrastructure project met CCC's high standards of excellence.
