Cost Effective Security Planning for Development Master Plan
Doha Zoo Case Study

Client: KEO International Consultants

Date and Duration: October 2012 - June 2015

Place of Performance: Doha Zoo, Qatar


Qatar’s Public Works Authority (PWA) awarded the contract for the demolition of the buildings and facilities that were currently on site at the zoo, located opposite Aspire Park and Villagio Mall. These movements were part of a complete overhaul over five years with the plan to convert the zoo into a safari park.

In 2013, PWA signed a multi-million dollar contract with an architectural and engineering firm to prepare plans for a new zoo and KEO International Consultants was serving as the projects design and construction supervision consultant.

It will work with HHCP+PJA, which was hired in December 2012 to prepare the concept Master Plan that includes over 3,000 animals in themed zones.


Restrata was appointed by KEO International Consultants for the Security Services Commission as part of the overall project plan. Restrata worked closely with HHCP and KEO from the outset of this project to ensure early and cost effective security planning was embedded within the Master Plan Design.

  • Risk Register and Risk Treatment Plan
