Renovation of Somerset West Bay Hotel

Project Description

On a land area of 4,666 m2 and with a built-up area of 43,124 m2, the hotel is located at West Bay, a newly developed neighborhood that is considered one of the key districts in Doha, Qatar.
The building consists of the following components:

  • One-level basement: offices, car parking (around 120 cars), and technical services
  • Ground floor: hotel reception, lobby, offices, meeting rooms, restaurant, gym, and swimming pool
  • 1st floor to 25th floor: 200 apartments (two- and three-bedroom units) stylishly furnished with modern interiors and fittings and fully equipped with kitchens and home entertainment systems
  • Roof: technical services

The apartments are complemented with Somerset West Bay’s lifestyle facilities and business support services, thus offering the residents peace of mind and great comfort through their busy life in the heart of the city.
ECG’s services cover the renovation of the ground floor and 200 apartments, in addition to the conversion of 30 of the three-bedroom units into 60 one-bedroom units, which brings the total number of apartments to 230.
Services also include the development of three retail shops at the reception area, as well as the replacement of the existing façade of glazed curtain walls with a new energy-saving façade system in compliance with
sustainability requirements.
ECG is also responsible for managing the required submissions to achieve Qatar Sustainability Assessment System (QSAS) certification in accordance with the established requirements of sustainable design. In the
process, a QSAS-accredited professional shall be assigned for each discipline to fulfill sustainability requirements.
