Qatar Airways links more than 100 international destinations across Africa, Central Asia, Europe, Far East, South Asia, Middle East, North America, South America and Oceania from its base in Doha, the capital of Qatar. A seven-year construction project that began in 2005 would involve a location approximately 36 square kilometers and require nearly 40,000 workers on a complex job site. At the New Doha International Airport, the passenger terminal alone is spread over an internal area of 600,000 m2.


From substrate prep to waterproofing and tile installation, ARDEX was the solution for every challenge offering time savings, ease of application and onsite training from ARDEX professionals. A slab out of tolerance was leveled with more than 4,500 tons of ARDEX K 15 covering 144,000m2 at varied thicknesses from 5 to 40 mm. Using ARDEX K 15 for leveling instead of screed on the slab also provided levelness and flatness needed later for finished flooring and carpet. Jobsite coordination was flawless with up to 12 teams of 8 to 10 workers installing an average of 200 to 300 m2 daily. Nearly 30,000 units of ARDEX X 7 G Plus Flexible Tile Adhesive provided tremendous savings because its outstanding overage is generally 20 percent greater than similar products. ARDEX CD was used to resurface concrete paths and roadways that were damaged during constriction. ARDEX CD created a hard, durable and uniform finish in a fast and cost effective way. In total, more than one-quarter million units of 13 different ARDEX products are a permanent part of NDIA. The airport is scheduled to open in 2014 with a third and final phase scheduled for 2015.
