Lusail Medicinal and Educational District Masterplan
The Lusail City is located North of Doha, spreading over an area of 38km² with a waterfront location stretching over 28km. This ‘city of the future’ boasts a light rail network and will house more than 200,000 residents. Cundall was appointed for the Lusail Medical and Educational Districts 1 and 2 project.
Our team provided the design guidelines, regulations and concepts used to create each precincts character and design standard. The emphasis of the masterplan was residential, medical and education, also integrating the Lusail Light Rail Transit (LRT) network, which we were appointed on under separate commission. The scope included utilities reviews, concept lighting strategies and street and pedestrian relationships.
Lee French, Partner, commented "Throughout the concept evolution of the districts, as lead infrastructure designer we understood the importance of delivering on the city's sustainable vision. We also understood the importance of collaboration in bringing that vision to life, and as part of the design process, we focused on interactive sessions with stakeholders to bring the client on the journey with us."
The city is referred to as Qatar’s Future City.
The city is home to the biggest stadium in Qatar, which will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
The development of the infrastructure strategies were key in shaping the district's sustainable vision and informing the structure of the masterplan.
