In order to celebrate International Women’s Day, NAWIC Qatar, the first National Association of Women in Construction in the Middle East, organised a site visit to Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakra on the afternoon of March 5.

Thanks to the Supreme Committee of Delivery and Legacy, around 20 NAWIC members were able to visit the first fully air-conditioned stadium in the world under the guidance of Abdulaziz Abdullah Jabir Al Ishaq, Project Director, Al Janoub Stadium & Precinct, said a statement.





During the 2-hour tour, NAWIC’s women (and 4 men) working in the building industry were able to learn all the various aspects in the construction process of the only 4-star GSAS (Global Sustainability Assessment System) certified stadium in the world so far: From the air-conditioning to the seats for the supporters (half of which will be distributed to other facilities after the 2022 World Cup as agreed with FIFA).

NAWIC’s President, Billie Teshich, shared her impressions in company of one of NAWIC’s founding members, Carly-Jane Figgis:

“This building clearly summarises how Qatar’s efforts as the host country of FIFA 2022 World Cup have paid off. Al Janoub Stadium clearly shows how Qatar invested in innovations in order to become a pioneer in building Sports infrastructure.”
