About 

Dr Architect ATOS BATARRA

Review of my credentials will confirm that I have 29 years worth of knowledge, abilities, experience and track record that you might be looking for: most of my experience is in Design Concept, and Team leading and Site Supervision.

I provided outstanding performances in my previous employments in Qatar (Ramco and UDC), with my main achievements being:

Managing the New Regent Hotel project as Technical Manager and part of the Board of directors

Managing the Qanat Quartier and Medina Centrale (The Pearl Qatar) projects, and solving problems which had blocked the two large scale developments for months:

o Reviewing of concept and preliminary designs
o Reinventing some of the buildings with new architectural elements, materials, colors

and interior design.

o Redesigning 15 bridges

o Reorganizing the landscaping of Plazas and Boardwalks (lighting and urban furniture, signage and toponymy)

o Removing architectural barriers

o Managing a team of architects and engineers

o Facilitating relationships among stakeholders

o Design of the Villas Labours (570) Compound in The Pearl Qatar for HDC with M2 Precast System.

In addition to my strong organizational experience, I also have extensive understanding of the local procedures and of the difficulties to manage large scale and landmark projects in an environment like Qatar: I do believe that I can help avoid mistakes and wastes of time due to practical and procedural misunderstandings—which happen so often in this region.
