Cundall was employed to carry out detailed design of the civil works for the Solis Hotel development which included road design, drainage design and external works detailing. 

The five-star hotel, the first Solis property in the Middle East, will have 418 guest rooms and suites.

Located next to the Qatar National Convention Centre, the hotel will also feature a spa, three restaurants, indoor recreational area, 17,216 foot ballroom, over 17,000ft² of breakout, pre-function and exhibit space, four board rooms and six meeting rooms.

There were many special design features of the project including the entire hotel being draped with a curtain façade that envelopes the full building and provides cover to the external roads.

Also the building was a very complicated structure with lots of level changes combined with a very high water table which caused design issues.

Cundall re-designed the storm water network to ensure that there were no issues with the very high basement slab which covered almost 50% of the external works area.

The project is on target to achieve a LEED Silver rating.
