Business as usual for Ushida Findlay projects in Gulf state

  • Comment

Ushida Findlay is pressing ahead with two projects in the Gulf state of Qatar - despite the heavy build up of coalition troops in the country.

The practice has been appointed for two projects in the capital Doha, a large 3,800m 2house for a private individual and a museum of national costume for the government.

Director Kathryn Findlay told the AJ she was planning to fly out today (Thursday) to formalise contracts for both schemes.

The museum project, worth £8-9 million, is at the concept stage, and Findlay said the design will be 'fluid'. 'That is all I can say at this stage, ' she said.

Findlay said it was 'business as usual' in Qatar, which is serving as the nerve centre for the coalition's war effort against Iraq. 'It's far enough at the bottom of the Gulf, ' she said. 'When you're there, everything feels normal.'
