The Office

Our Birmingham office now employs more than 30 people and is currently working on some of the company’s key commissions. 

Qatar Petroleum is developing a masterplan for Mesaieed Industrial City (MIC) for the next 25 to 30 years. The plan includes expansion of the residential and industrial areas, as well as creation of other service facilities. Pell Frishmann has been commissioned by the QP to develop a strategic model of Mesaieed in order to assess the feasibility and the suitability of the proposed development options. MIC is located approximately 40-45 km to the south of the capital Doha. However, the study area defined for Mesaieed Industrial City is a 58,242 hectare (582 km2) tract that stretches inland from the coast along Arabian Gulf.

We are also dealing with all aspects of traffic and transportation, site access and offsite highways from feasibility stage and design, to supervision of works for the i54 Strategic Employment Area in Wolverhampton. This 96 hectare business park development, on a brownfield site, will have its own motorway junction to the M54.
