ASTAD has been furthering their collaborative efforts with Korea-based architecture firm HAEAHN, to fulfil the complex design requirements of projects in Qatar and internationally, including their work this year on Qatar Rail’s Transit Oriented Development (TOD) Project which was designed with the collaborative efforts of Qatari and Korean Engineers. The design work includes two TOD Project locations; Hamad Hospital and Rayyan Al Qadeem.

On Monday 20 November, ASTAD signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with HAEAHN Architecture to identify mutual business opportunities that encourages further collaboration between Qatari and Korean engineers in  the fields of design and project management. This agreement sets new horizons for cooperation in comprehensive design services, ensuring quality project design while meeting the highest standards. It paves the way for bilateral cooperation and joint strategic objectives aimed at exploring markets and directing efforts towards viable building and infrastructure projects on an international level.
