Manateq Headquarters at Qatar Economic Zone 1 (QEZ-1) is set to play a major role in the development of the economic zone and Ras Bufontas area at large. When complete, it will serve as a one-stop shop for investors in relation to a range of operations, including marketing, sales, permitting, licensing, and other support functions.
Over a land area of 23,000 m2 and with a built-up area of 35,000 m2, the building consists of four wings enclosing an internal yard. The four wings are interconnected by pedestrian bridges and rise above a lower ground floor that includes 270 parking slots, technical spaces, and other building amenities.
Each building wing consists of the following components:
• ground floor: lobbies, reception area, offices, gym, prayer rooms, toilets, kitchen, pantries, and utilities
• four upper floors: waiting area, offices, meeting rooms, and audiovisual room (the upper floors of wing 1 and wing 4 are designed on a shell-and-core basis)
• roof: open gardens and utilities
The external area features piazzas, gardens, ramps, surface car parks, and a drop-off. A technical yard is located in an adjacent parcel owned by Manateq.
The yard provides electric power and chilled water to the building to keep it fully operational until QEZ-1 infrastructure networks are in service.
