New Village accommodation homes for workers to come up

Leading real estate developer Global Building Solutions (GBS) are teaming up with Qatar-based partners to develop high quality workers accommodation villages.

The villages will be named Daruna (Our House) and will abide by the international and Qatari standards, including the Mandatory Standards for Migrant Workers’ Welfare 2013 by Qatar Foundation.

Qatar Foundation, together with the government, the Supreme Committee for Development and Legacy and FIFA, will make Daruna as the end-to-end designer-builder-owner and operator, offering an important price-competitive labour solution.

Further, it has entered into a deal with world-class operating company to offer catering, transportation, laundry, and maintenance for all Daruna villages. This approach offers a competitive labour advantage to Daruna customers, when it comes to bidding and implementing their core business contracts in Qatar. Daruna customers can protect their corporate reputations and leverage their marketing advantage by operating in compliance with Qatari and international standards.

Currently, Daruna is securing sites across Qatar to build villages.

The villages will accommodate the ever-growing semi-skilled and unskilled workforce required to deliver the required infrastructure for World Cup 2022 and Qatar National Vision 2030 from rail and roads to hotels and iconic stadiums.
