Interface, GBS tapped for huge LEED project in Qatar

The Msheireb redevelopment project will create a 110-building sustainable eco-district in the heart of Doha, Qatar.
Interface had $26 million in revenue last year not including work done out of the Doha office. It will staff that office with about 10 commissioning engineers for the project. Interface was invited to bid on the contract based on work the firm did in nearby Abu Dhabi, but the scope of the Msheireb contract is unlike anything else the firm has worked on.
"I'm excited about how much we will share and how much we will learn," Napiboor said. "And I'm excited to bring some new strategies back to Oregon as well."
The Msheireb contract is another tie connecting Oregon to Qatar. Last September, a delegation representing the Qatar National Food Security Programme was in Oregon to talk about cooperating to use clean technology and advanced irrigation to improve food security in arid regions.
Interface is also working on the design of the proposed Oregon Sustainability Center.
