United Development Company (UDC), a leading Qatari Shareholding Company and the master developer of The Pearl-Qatar, yesterday recognized the outstanding work of one of its contractors operating at the Company’s urban development mega project, The Pearl-Qatar.
In a ceremony attended by The Pearl-Qatar’s Director of Operations, Saeed Al-Sulaiti and other executives, United Construction Est. (UCE), the contractor of Tower VB-09 in the Island’s Viva Bahriya district and also of Villa BVN 08, received the ‘Environmental Management Contractor of the Quarter’ award for winning the “Best Tower” and “Best Villa” categories, in reference to the outstanding environmental practices the contractor employed at the construction site throughout the last quarter of 2013.
The event was a salute to the efforts contractors at The Pearl-Qatar have been making to comply with the tough environmental expectations UDC has set. The innovative award incentive program is aimed at encouraging contractors to not only meet those standards, but to also exceed them by using and following work practices that are environmentally conscious and in compliance with Qatar’s laws and with the environmental policies and procedures of UDC.
“By winning this award, United Construction Est. (UCE) demonstrated a plausible commitment to employing environmentally safe and conscious work standards and practices,” Othman Al Muhannadi, Environmental Field Inspector – The Pearl-Qatar Operations Environment, said.
“We are proud of their performance and do acknowledge their hard work and highlight their accomplishments.”
He added, “While we recognize UCE’s accomplishments, we feel very fortunate to have this caliber of contractors working on our Island. It’s both a challenge and a responsibility to select the best of the best, but we do look forward to having that same challenge when we make our award selections next quarter.”
The Contractor Incentive Program is an initiative of UDC’s Environmental Department. It aims at providing contractors with the incentive to work in a more environmentally conscious manner, follow environmental laws and regulations, create awareness about the environment among workers on the construction sites and be recognized publicly for their performance and accomplishments.
