Two projects in Qatar well under way
Despite the travel restrictions caused by Covid19, we are pleased to still be very involved in two large projects in Qatar working as Educationalists / Education Planners on more Qatar Foundation projects.
Working with Wight & Co Architects (Chicago), we have been heavily involved in the Academyati school project for students aged 3- 19 (formerly called the Future School). This was a competitive design win for the team, against strong international competition. We are now up to considering innovative and exciting FF&E solutions.
A second project we are heavily involved with is for a large school specifically for ASD students(480 students) aged 3- 21 (480 students). Still at early concept design stage, again with Wight & Co, the remote working (USA / UK / Qatar) across time zones is proving a successful and efficient way of working. More on these projects later.
the-learning-crowd has already been involved with six previous school projects in Doha, four of which were for the Qatar Foundation. . The experience gained being involved with these has been really helpful in supporting expectations and requirements.
More on these latest two projects later.
