Macro, an international facilities management company, has won a five-year FM consultancy contract, worth US$ 4.12 million with Qatar Petroleum (QP).

It will include the oil and gas supplier’s relocation to a new headquarters, comprising almost 630,000m2 of built up area in the Qatar Petroleum District in Doha.  

Currently under construction, the HQ – called QP District – will include nine office buildings, ranging from 17-45 storey towers, 410 room five star hotel, 500 seat auditorium, professional training facility, state of the art medical centre and an independent building which will accommodate various cooling systems equipment, and a data centre.

Services to be provided by Macro include a strategic report of the fit-out design, an FM strategy, life cycle costing, an asset management plan, operations and maintenance specifications, policies and procedures including KPIs, service level agreements, as well as tender documents for the service providers. Macro will also be involved in the move management arrangements.

“The appointment of Macro will enable QP to benefit from the depth of its knowledge and international experience in bringing best practice and innovative solutions, to what is a major step in QP’s evolution,” explained Abdulaziz Ali Al-Shaq, general services manager, QP. “The centralisation on to one site gives us the opportunity and challenge to develop facilities and systems that give stakeholders a quality, cost effective and efficient working environment that supports the needs of our organisation as a world class business and employer. Working in partnership with Macro, I feel comfortable that these opportunities will be realised and the challenges overcome.”
