Duhail Handball Sports Hall

A sustainable home for handball in the Middle East

The Duhail Handball Sports Hall was built for the 2015 Men’s Handball World Championship. The 5,500-capacity facility includes an indoor stadium, two practice courts and back-of-house facilities suitable for hosting international sports events. It also houses 60-bedroom player accommodation and a 25m, four-lane swimming pool with grandstands.

We provided structural and building services design, transport integrated systems (TIS) and fire & life safety services to the project.

Our aim was to provide an efficient system that would be simple to build and meet the client’s need for a very fast construction programme with rigid deadlines. We also sought to maximize the building’s sustainable credentials, designing an efficient heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system to reduce the arena’s cooling and energy requirements.

The venue is the headquarters of the Qatar Handball Association and home ground for Qatar’s national handball teams.
