Qatar Academy Msherieb is part of a sustainable urban regeneration project in historic downtown Doha. Teachers at the early childhood center and primary school use Arabic and English, and foster an inclusive environment for students who may need some additional help. Henderson Engineers was part of the international project team that designed the school. A challenge that came with being part of the large global group? Translating the team’s wide and varied vision to construction designs that could be executed.
The multistory Academy had an indoor swimming pool, commercial kitchen, courtyard, gym, classrooms and a parking structure. Our team provided the certified LEED Silver building with the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, technology, audio-video, acoustical and security systems. Revitalizing a town takes schools, businesses and other services families need. Henderson was glad to use our expertise to give new life to a historical downtown a world away from our Kansas City hometown.
