BEIJING, July 19 (Xinhua) -- With the concrete pouring of the 5th floor of the 2nd district finished, civil engineering work of the Qatar Lusail Stadium, which has been proposed as the main venue for the 2022 World Cup's game, has been completed.
The project was constructed by China Railway Construction Corporation Limited (CRCC). CRCC will build it into the first Arabic-style stadium for World Cup, making it a landmark in Qatar.
On November 28, 2016, a joint venture formed by CRCC and Qatar-based HBK Contracting Co. bid to become as main contractor for the stadium construction work. CRCC holds 45 percent of the shares in the venture.
The construction work started from November 2017 and lasted 21 months.
Besides, incentive measures and competition mechanism have been introduced to improve the efficiency of field work, which greatly alleviated the problem of tight construction period and has provided solid foundation for the installation of the outer steel structure as well as pipeline laying.
