LEED Projects

The new under-construction National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) features an innovative design by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel that is inspired by the desert rose and grows organically around the original 20th century palace of Sheikh Abdullah Bin Jassim Al Thani. This important monument to Qatar’s past is now preserved as the heart of the new NMoQ.[2] The relation between the new and old building is part of creating the bridge between the past and the present advocated by Sheikha Al Mayassa for it is the way to "define ourselves instead of forever being defined by others… celebrating our identity."
The 430,000 sq ft museum is created by a series of interlocking discs that create cavities to protect visitors from the desert heat.[4] Located on a 1.5 million-square-foot site at the south end of Doha’s Corniche, the NMoQ building will rise from the sea and will be connected to shore by two pedestrian bridges and a vehicular bridge.
The content of the exhibitions has been much more contentious with frequent changes of ideas which have delayed progress.

Qatar Green Leaders was contracted by the main contractor, HDEC, to provide LEED Consultancy Services during construction and act as the project's LEED Champion. The service commenced in April 2016.

L16001 - National Museum of Qatar

The National Museum of Qatar is located across from the Corniche in the Qatar's capital Doha. The building, which is being constructed in place of the old Qatar National Museum, was designed by architect Jean Nouvel. It was scheduled for 2016 opening, however a 2017 or 2018 opening is now much more probable.
