a timely manner through any procedurally acceptable means at his disposal.

2.3

CLIENT PROCURED ITEMS (CPI) MANAGEMENT


To Be Developed.

2.4

SITE SECURITY MANAGEMENT


Provide coordination between different Contractors and Investors Contractors.

Will be

responsible for security, emergency response, and traffic management around the project. A
number of access gates will be required for different contractors to access different areas of
Lusail Development. It is presently anticipated that certain gates will be restricted to only one
Contractor or Investor, and it is recommended that the responsible Contractor be required to
provide access security for that gate.

A number of gates will be required to provide access for multiple Contractors, and it is
recommended that the Security Services Company provide security at these multiple use gates.
2.5

ACCESS MANAGEMENT
Will be responsible for the control, regulation and verification of the labor entering and
circulating around the project.

The primary responsibilities of the Access Management include:

The supply, issue and recall of project access ID cards, and vehicle passes.

To evaluate the current labor force on site and ensure that all documentation is in
place.

To compile and maintain a database of all existing persons on site.

Supply, install and operate access checkpoints at various project locations.

132

Process applications for access to Parcels by Investors and their contractors,


coordinate access with other involved contractors and QD, and facilitate access
approval.

The Access Management Company will report daily to the Access/Security


Contractor Manager.

2.6

THIRD PARTY DEVELOPERS


The Logistics Team will review and approve logistics plans, and arrange and coordinate with
adjacent developers to ensure that potential conflicts are avoided.

2.7

LOGISTICAL INTERFACES
Weekly logistics team interface meetings are to be held and chaired by the Logistics Manager
for the purpose of discussing progress of the logistics elements of the project, to understand the
requirements of the Project Managers, Developers, Construction Supervision Team, and
Contractors and to anticipate conflicts on site due to different requirements of different
contractors and find solutions before they become problems.

2.8

MARINE MANAGEMENT
A Marine Operations manager will provide coordination between the Access/Security
management organizations and the Marine Operations contractor, who will be responsible for
the operation of the marine terminal in support of bulk materials delivery and transfer to the
batch plants. He will also be responsible for coordination of all marine activities in and around
the project site.

ACCESS MANAGEMENT AND SECURITY

3.1

ACCESS MANAGEMENT
Labor access:

In order to ensure complete accountability and transparency of each

worker/contracting company, it is necessary to have an ongoing monitoring system that


monitors and controls the movement of all human resource activities on the project site. This

133

system will also provide the project management with a tool to verify contractors claims on the
size of labor force at any point of time.
Investor and Contractor access to Parcels: There is a requirement to provide access to Parcels
by Investors and their Contractors for development activities.

This activity involves the

acceptance of access requests from Investors and their contractors, verification that the Parcels
are ready for developer access, processing the paperwork associated with access for the
developers labor, and providing access approval.
3.2

PERSONNEL IDENTIFICATION ACCESS CARD


All individuals working on Lusail Development Project will be required to carry a personal ID
card at all times to access the project site.

Project Managers, Construction Managers,

Developers, and Contractors are required to compile labor lists that provide detailed information
on all employees, which will be forwarded to the Access Management Company. Required
information includes but is not limited to: full name, employing company, trade, and work permit
number, visa and residency details. Persons who do not carry their ID cards will be denied
access.
3.3

VEHICLE PASSES
The project has been divided into a series of eight eventual construction packages for
development of the infrastructure. These eight construction packages will be divided into four
Zones. Each of the construction packages will relate to a certain scope and area of
development, although some of the areas will overlap. For example, construction of the bridges
will occur in the construction areas on the islands as well as on the shore.

In addition,

considerable amounts of traffic due to Parcel development by Investors contractors will occur
concurrently with the development of the infrastructure under the construction packages.
Access to these areas will be controlled and only vehicles with proper vehicle passes and
occupants with approved ID cards will be permitted to enter.
All Contractors machinery and equipment are required to display the name/logo of that
contractor. All delivery trucks are required to have proper delivery documents to be verified by
security at the project gate.

134

All passes are serialized and a database record of the details as outlined in the Permanent
Employee Pass Request Form is to be developed and maintained by Access Management
Company who in turn will forward it to the Security Services Company for update on the central
database. The pass forms will be developed by the Access Management Company.
Any vehicle wishing to enter the project that does not carry a pass as described above will be
issued a temporary pass on a one trip basis once authority for entry has been granted. Such
vehicles arriving at the gate must be able to produce relevant documentation (delivery note or
written approval from developer on site) to the security and access control before a pass can be
issued. The delivery note will be checked at the security gate against the approved list of
suppliers and contractors and a corresponding entry pass issued that will allow access to that
area. The pass will allow access for that one delivery only and will be collected as the truck exits
the project through security control. Similarly, the driver and any passengers in the vehicle will
also require Visitors Temporary Passes.
Rules and regulations as applicable on Lusail Development Project will be strictly observed.
The contractor shown on the delivery note will be responsible for the truck and its safe operation
at all times while on the project. Violations could result in the pass being revoked, further
access denied, the police contacted or the individual held for further measures as appropriate.
3.4

VISITORS AND VIP PASSES


Temporary passes for non-regular visitors to the project will be introduced whereby each visitor
is required to submit his/her personal ID card and a Bar-Coded Visitor Pass will be issued to
them before entry will be permitted.
The Pass Request Form shall be available from the Lusail Access/Security Contractor Manager
and Access Management Company and/or Security Services Company at the project entrance.
Forms will also be available by contacting the Security Services Company in advance of the
visit.
Passes will be collected by the Security Services Company as the vehicle exits through the
security post and scanned to record the time and date. The Security Services Company shall
maintain a central database to record vehicle/owner details for passes issued.

135

3.5

GATES / SECURITY LOCATIONS


External site gates will be placed at locations to provide access to construction areas.
Developers of Parcels will be required to provide a fence around their Parcel and maintain their
own access gate into the Parcel. The external access control location will be self contained by
way of on duty security officers to monitor and control access to the project site.

3.6

SECURITY RESPONSIBILITY
It is the duty of the security team to:

Protect the project site

Control access to the project site

Provide access promptly without impacting labor productivity

Regulate traffic and enforce procedures and policies

Aid in emergency situations

ROAD ACCESS AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT


With regards to road access, Lusail Integrated Logistics Plan is centered on the ability to access
all areas of work in a timely and controlled manner and for labor and materials to arrive in the
right place at the right time. .

4.1

APPROACHES TO SITE
Once construction starts, traffic congestion will be high, which will have a major impact upon the
traffic approaching Lusail Development site entrances. Measures must be implemented by the
contractors and suppliers to coordinate with the Access/Security Construction Manager of their
deliveries for non-peak times and avoid the hours of restricted movement.

4.2

SITE ENTRANCE ROAD


A series of temporary alignments will be delivered and implemented during the construction
phase of the infrastructure from the Golf Course roundabout to various locations within Lusail. In

136

summary, a four lane visitors road will be provided from the roundabout to Qatari Diars Office
to the east of the existing Lusail Road. Construction traffic will not be permitted on this road.
A four lane temporary construction road will be provided from the roundabout to the west of the
existing Lusail Road along the perimeter of the site to the area referred to as Logistics City,
which is on the north end of the Lusail Development. Logistics City will be the location for the
labor camp, concrete and asphalt batch plants, and other logistical support facilities. This road
will provide access gates at several locations. Construction of these roads will be the highest
priority.
4.3

MAIN HAUL ROAD


A minimum 20m wide, 2 lanes each direction main haul road, to be designed to Qatar Highway
Design Manual (QHDM) standards, will be developed and constructed from the marine terminal
material transport dock to the four lane temporary construction road, and then on to the
Concrete/Asphalt Batching Plants located to the north of the project. Several feeder roads will
be constructed to connect the main haul road to the various developments within the project.
These main feeder haul roads will be maintained throughout the construction period of this
project. A map will be finalized after the main feeder haul roads options have been evaluated
and final routes have been confirmed.

4.4

SITE SIGNAGE AND LIGHTING


In order to enhance site safety and facilitate the efficiency of activity and movement around the
site, extensive use will be made of signage and lighting in all common use areas. Individual
contractors are required to maintain adequate signage and lighting in the immediate vicinity of
their working area.

Roadway signage will be in accordance with Qatar Traffic Manual.

Roadway lighting will be in accordance with QHDM, Section 10.


4.5

TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT
As the main haul road, the four lane temporary construction road, feeder roads and the main
access points are constructed, the appropriate signage, lane delineation, lighting and traffic
control will be installed to ensure the safe operation of the site roads. Speed

137

reducing measures will be introduced in an effort to slow down traffic and prevent accidents.
4.6

TEMPORARY ROAD CONSTRUCTION STAGING


The first priority will be the construction of the entry road and first phase of the construction
road. After completion of the entry road and the first phase of the construction road (the section
west from the QD Visitors Centre), it is anticipated that construction of the balance of the
construction road over to the batch plant area will proceed continuously, followed by
construction of the other planned temporary roads. As soon as the route of the main haul road
from the marine terminal material transport dock has been confirmed, construction of the main
haul road to its junction with the four lane temporary construction road and on to the
concrete/asphalt batching plants will also proceed on a priority basis. Design of the temporary
construction roads is in progress.

Construction of all the temporary construction roads is

anticipated to be complete by early 2009.

MATERIALS MANAGEMENT
If a decision is made by QD to procure its own construction materials; such as asphalt, concrete
materials, pipes etc.; for its own developments, the following procedures are planned:

5.1

OFFSITE WAREHOUSES
These will be located in the Logistics City area North of Lusail, if required. An area is being
reserved for future warehouses that may be needed.

5.2

ON-SITE STORAGE AND LAY DOWN AREAS.


On site storage and lay down areas are subject to pre-approval by the Logistics Manager. The
minimum required information is: (Form to be developed)

Area required.

Product description and details.

Material handling equipment.

Duration.

138

HSSE Assessment.

Materials handling equipment at the lay-down yard shall be submitted to the Logistics Manager
for approval.
Once materials are received into the lay-down area, all transport from there to the point of
consumption is the responsibility of the contractor under review of the Logistics Team.
5.3

DIRECT DELIVERED MATERIALS


Materials delivered directly to the job site will be made under the supervision of the relevant
contractor or project manager. For this purpose, each shall make arrangements, as part of their
own logistics plans, for materials storage and lay-down yards within the confines of their plots
within which the development is taking place. Materials storage outside of the plots boundaries
will only be permissible upon the approval of Lusail Logistics Team unless otherwise agreed.

OFFICE ACCOMMODATION

6.1

OFFICE
The Logistics & HSE Office is located at Lusail site office complex to the east of the QD Visitors
Centre.

6.2

CONTRACTORS / CONSULTANTS
The contractors site office accommodations will be located within the confines of their work,
unless specific exceptions are agreed to. Each contractor is contractually required to provide
and maintain accommodations for the consultants managing them within their confines. They
are also required to provide their own power, water, sewage, telephones and IT services unless
otherwise agreed upon.

139

6.3

HSE AND LOGISTICS


It is currently planned that two compounds for HSE and Logistics support will be provided on the
Lusail site.

One main HSE and Logistics compound will be located within Logistics City

adjacent to the labor camp, and one will be located at the Program Management Office.

MARINE MANAGEMENT
The supply of building material is in short supply in Qatar and therefore, most of the primary
materials will have to be imported from outside the State. Most construction projects suffer
shortage of building materials and delays as a result thereof.

Due to the expected volume of marine traffic and marine based activities that are planned to
occur during the construction phase of the project, the Marine Operation Contractors Manager
will be responsible for acting as the common focal point for all developers with regards to their
water based activities. His office will manage and
Control the movement of marine craft and coordinate water based activities to ensure that there
is no conflict between simultaneous operations. The department will also ensure that all water
based activities are conducted safely and do not cause hindrance to other developers.

To ensure that the Lusail marine terminal can be suitably managed for the benefit of all
developers and marine craft operators; all developers, and the Master of any craft under their
control, are to adhere to the Lusail Marine Terminal Operating Procedures, Rules and
Regulations for Marine Operations. Refer to Appendix A.

In addition to the management and coordination of marine traffic and activities within the Lusail
marine terminal limits, the Marine Operation Manager is also responsible for the following
marine based activities:

140

Acting as the point of contact for liaison with the local maritime authorities, Qatar

Ports Authority, Local Marinas, etc.

Navigation Warnings will be issued to all developers to keep them and their

Masters informed of all marine activities that are planned that may impinge or affect their
operations.

Notices to Mariners will be issued to advice of any changes to the fabric of the

harbor, such as changes to navigation aids, jetties, mooring buoys etc.

Information on the latest bathymetry within Harbour limits, routes, hazards, jetties navigation
aids and all other pertinent navigational information will be made available to all marine craft
operators to ensure the safety of navigation of their craft within Lusail Development.
The Marine Operation Manager is also responsible for ensuring that all vessels are in all
respects suitable to be working in such a high profile development as Lusail. In this regard, all
marine craft will be subject to inspection to ensure that they are compliant with all international,
flag state, and local Ministry of Communication requirements, and are operating in line with
industry best practice.

MANPOWER AND TRAFFIC PROJECTIONS


It is a requirement on Lusail Development Project that all parties (infrastructure contractors and
contractors for Third Party Developers) shall provide a planned projection, on a monthly basis to
the limit of their contractual performance period, of their projected manpower and vehicle
movements on and off the project site. Such plans shall be updated on a periodical basis and
communicated to Lusail Logistics Manager.

DEVELOPERS LOGISTICS PLANS

10.1

INPUT FROM DEVELOPERS PROJECT MANAGERS AND CONTRACTORS


The Lusail Integrated Logistics Plan will serve as a starting point and guideline for the
compilation of the Developers own logistics plans by their Project Managers.

This plan

determines the High Level strategy of the logistics implementation of the project from which
the individual developers plans can be initiated and expanded upon with the requisite detail
pertinent to that particular development.
The Lusail Logistics Team will review and approve logistics plans, and arrange and coordinate
with adjacent developers to ensure that potential conflicts are avoided. The subject headings
denoted below should be addressed during the compilation of logistics plans and may be used
as guidance notes.
10.2

SITE BOUNDARIES AND SIGNAGE


Lusail Development comprises separate developments that have a common interest with regard
to access and construction of the developments. Each of the developers and their project
managers are required to plan to execute their works within the confines of their own plot
boundary.
At the time of handover of the site from QD to the developer, the plot boundaries will be clearly
pegged out by QDs survey team. The developers are required to have their own survey team
to confirm the setting out. Boundary signage and fences are required to be established by the
developer, which must not protrude beyond the site boundary or encroach into neighboring
property.

142

10.3

SITE LAYOUT AND PLANNING


The planning of the building works and the construction techniques employed are to take into
consideration the limitations imposed by the requirement to remain within the plot boundaries.
The developers logistics plan must be realistic in terms of efficient use of the space available
with the layout of site access routes and storage and work sequencing patterns carefully
considered and executed in the correct manner.

10.4

PROJECT OFFICES AND TEMPORARY BUILDINGS


Developers project offices, site establishments and temporary buildings for the construction
phase are to be contained within the limits of the developers own plot boundary, and the
logistics plan should make provision for this requirement. QD will not be responsible for the
provision of office space, temporary buildings or for making locations available for these to be
established.

10.5

SITE UTILITIES AND SERVICES


There are no mains, utilities or services established within the project therefore the developers
logistics plan should include for the provision of the deliveries of these elements.

The

Developer is to make allowances to provide the following temporary services and utilities during

to an Investor assuming custody of a Parcel, the Parcel will either be under the control of the
Employer or under the control of a Contractor performing work for the Employer. In general,
access will only be allowed after the Employers Contractor has completed the Work on the
Parcel and the Work has been accepted by the Employer. However, the Parcel may be part of
a larger area of land that is still under the control of the Employers Contractor, and control of
the complete area may not have been transferred back to the Employer. In this situation, the
Investor or his Contractor can expect that he will have to access the Parcel through a site gate
controlled by another Contractor, will have to cross property controlled by that Contractor, and
will have to comply with all access rules established by that Contractor.
