Al Wahda Arches dominate the blue-sky landscape of Qatar’s capital, Doha.
The Arches are the most prominent monumental feature standing 100m tall.
Constructed specifically for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, this stunning piece of architecture received an international design award in 2020 and won Best Global Project by Engineering News -Record (ENR) in 2018.
The structure is constructed of 9,000 tonnes of steel, while the arches are clad with Limra Limestone.
Construction of the dual arches presented an engineering challenge given the angles and size of the project. Macalloy were actively involved supplying 1030 bars in 75mm to secure the foundations and Hydraulic Jack units to stress the bars.
