Qetaifan Projects succeeded in adapting to difficulties, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, and transforming challenges into opportunities in 2020.

Fully owned by Katara Hospitality and the exclusive real estate developer of Qetaifan Island North, Qetaifan Projects is celebrating its third anniversary and the second anniversary of the start of construction on site.

According to the company, the development of Qetaifan Island North did not witness any deviation from the set schedule or any noticeable delays from the specified work plan.

A committee was formed to develop a joint plan between the Operations and Technical Departments headed by Katara Hospitality managing director and deputy chairman Sheikh Nasser bin Abdul Rahman al-Thani to manage the crisis without affecting the company’s operation, employees, departments, and the more than 7,000 workers under the supervision of six main contractors.

The number of working hours reached more than 6mn to complete the first-phase projects packages, which include the hotel, waterpark, icon tower island, salt canal, retail plaza, mosque, and beach club.

The most prominent priorities for crisis management were the physical and psychological health of the company's employees, with a commitment to follow the precautionary measures set by the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management and the Ministry of Public Health.

“Working within a successful organisation, such as Katara Hospitality under the leadership of Sheikh Nawaf bin Jassim bin Jabor al-Thani, chairman of the board of directors of Katara Hospitality, puts more responsibility on us and requires more effort from our side. In other words, reaching the summit is difficult, but maintaining it is much more difficult.

“This requires from everyone to not only work as one team, but to work on establishing the team spirit as a principle and consider it as a starting point for understanding strengths and investing in them in the correct and timely manner, identifying weaknesses to avoid them, exploiting strengths to minimise the impact of weaknesses, and working in harmony and unity, each in his specialisation as one body in the face of the crisis,” Sheikh Nasser said.

He said the main reason behind the success of Qetaifan Projects is the clarity of vision and the smooth transmission of it to the team and the resulting unification of thought.

“The essence of crisis management, as is the case in all state institutions that combined their efforts and harnessed their capabilities to pass through the crisis, is taking into account preserving project schedules as much as possible and paying attention to the health and occupational safety of community members and work teams, especially in light of working on the preparations to host the 2022 World Cup, which will be hosted for the first time in an Arab country,” he said.
