About

The Red Line North Underground extends in a northerly direction from the station of Mushaireb, for a length of approximately 13 km through seven new underground stations. BIMON supported Italferr in the management and coordination of all stations on the metro line and was responsible for the BIM detailed design of the plumbing systems for four stations.

Project Background

This Project consists of building the elevated section of the RLS line in the Qatari capital. It is a continuation of the Underground RLS, to the east of the city and parallel to the coast. The 6.97 km stretch of metro line has three elevated stations, and mainly runs above-ground over the Al Wakra Main Road median strip, with 220 metres at ground level.

History

The “Red Line North” runs northward from Mushaireb station for a length of about 13km through seven new underground stations.The new red metro line aims to connect the northern part of Doha to the new and existing metro network. The construction of the Doha Metro involves connecting the population within the city and with its closest periphery. 

The role of urban and social connection that the project has is key. It is an integrating element in three areas: social, urban and territorial. In addition, it is a backbone of the country, not only for Doha but also for the celebration of the soccer world cup, since some of its facilities will serve to access the sports complexes, accompanied by an iconic and representative design of the country’s culture. 

The project involved the excavation of two parallel tunnels, one in each direction, about 11.6km long with an inner diameter of about 6.17m. The “Red Line North,” along with the other 3 metro lines is part of the program to build the new infrastructure id mobility system promoted by Qatar under the National Development Plan for 2030 (“Qatar National Vision 2030”).

Results

Executive Design

BIMON was responsible for the development of the executive design of the electrical, special, and mechanical systems

Modelling

During the design, software was used to develop a BIM model based on criteria important to the development of the infrastructure design. This resulted in accurate 3D models enhanced by BIM datasets; 2D drawings derived from BIM; and renderings of the 3D and 2D models.

Interference Management

Integration of all models into one aggregate model for interference management.

Document Extrapolation

From the BIM model, all the technical drawings of the final design and, subsequently, the executive design necessary for the construction of the work were extrapolated.
