ENVAC To Replicate Wembley City Success In Downtown Doha

The UK’s only underground vacuum waste management system, Envac, has been appointed waste management partner for the prestigious Msheireb Downtown project – a 31-hectare urban mixed-use regeneration project in Doha, Qatar.

Envac will manage the waste for almost 100 buildings and their public spaces. The buildings include offices, residential and civic developments, retail outlets, three hotels, three mosques, a school and commercial property spanning the entire site. The decision to partner with Envac will help Msheireb Properties achieve their goal of securing Gold rating with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED), the USA-based green building rating system.

The development’s mosques and a number of residential buildings throughout the project will also acheive certification under the Qatar Sustainability Assessment System.

Designed by Allies & Morrison, John McAslan + Partners, Adjaye Associates and Mossessian and Partners, Msheireb Downtown is expected to be completed in 2016 following an investment in excess of £3bn.

Graham Bell, Envac Middle East’s Regional President and Managing Director, says: “The Middle East is becoming a hotspot for UK architects looking to leave a lasting design legacy that ticks many sustainability boxes. The region’s buoyancy compared with Europe means that cutting edge projects continue to be designed and built. Technologies such as Envac are becoming increasingly popular for their ability to increase a development’s sustainability credentials and help ensure that the region is clean, attractive and accessible.”

The project will support Qatar’s Vision 2030 initiative, which aims to transform Qatar into a sustainable country by improving four key areas: human, social, environmental and economic development.

Mohammed Al-Marri, Projects Director of Msheireb Properties, adds, “The Gulf’s remarkable growth story has also affected the environment to a degree, which is why offsetting the environmental impact of any development is at the heart of Msheireb Properties’ vision. With this system from Envac, combined with an education campaign for all residents, we can ensure Msheireb Downtown is at the forefront of the world’s ‘Green cities’ movement.”

Three vertical chutes for organic waste, dry waste and mixed recyclables will be installed in every residential building with three waste inlets located on each floor.

Similar to Quintain Estates & Development plc’s Wembley City development, once waste is in the pipe network it will be sucked up to speeds of 70kph through distances as long as 2km to a central waste station. Diverting valves will ensure that each waste stream does not mix and is channelled into its correct container to be taken away by the development’s waste management partner.
