south catchment (around 680 km2).

2.1.3 IDRIS is strategic in nature and was developed to convert the foulsewer drainage in the Doha South Catchment from a pumped network
to a gravity sewer network. The IDRIS Programme both supports and
contributes to achieving the Qatari National Vision 2030 to transform
Qatar into an advanced country capable of sustaining its own
development and providing a high standard of living for its people. The
Authoritys vision calls for the delivery of state-of-the-art, sustainable,
world-class buildings and infrastructure that can fulfil this vision.

relieving the existing overloaded system. The deep-trunk sewer, known
as the Main Trunk Sewer (MTS), has an internal diameter (ID) ranging
between 3.0 and 4.5 meters (m) and will transfer the flows by gravity
for a distance of over 40 kilometres (km) south to a Terminal Pump
Station (TPS) located at the downstream end of the MTS. The flows will
then be lifted into the New Doha South (NDS) Sewage Treatment Works

(excavation, pipe laying, and backfilling). Manhole excavation will start after
excavation of pipeline and continue with following activities for manhole (blinding,
tanking, protection, base slab, wall concrete, external tanking, cover slab, DI cover
& backfilling). House connection Guiles excavation work will start after wall of
manholes and follow by (Installation of gullies, backfill and grating). Road

5. Assumptions for the Baseline programme:

Baseline programme indicates the planning implementation with Major items


which covers over all scope of the Project. While developing Baseline programme
the following assumptions has been made in order to make a realistic construction
approach and executable work programme as follows but not limited to:
(i)

(ii)

(iii)

Activity durations and resource assignments& assumed daily production


& required logics and their lags for predecessors and successors will be
modified if necessary based on site obstructions/ interfaces and also
unforeseen site conditions and unavoidable changes in QBCs
Construction Methodology. If necessary, programme will be subjected to
modification due to changes in QBCs construction methodology with
information to Atkins.
After the site handing over to QBC, QBC intend to start the work as soon
as possible. Assuming that all the necessary permits and approvals from
the Government/ Ashghal/ Kharamaa/ private authorities will be issued on
time and no obstructions or delay in permits/approvals will stop QBCs
execution and work progress.
QBC assumed that all the client and Government authorities permits/
approvals will be on time without any delays, and no interruptions for the
work to start and the client will provide always necessary work front in
order to progress in execution of works.

QBC assumes that if any scope of the project changes, if any additional works are
incurred it will affect the end date of the project and the client will accept the
required
(iv)

time & cost allocation for such works as positive variations, additional
works and time extension for QBC.

(v)

QBC assumes that there is no electrical work at package-2 in our scope of


work as there is discrepancy in road cross section and layout provided,
which has notified by QBC through email dated 06th July 2015.
(vi) QBC assumes that there is no any requirement of dewatering.
(vii) Sewer house connection for package 2 has considered as a future house
connection as per drawing details.
(viii) Road excavation considered up to sub-grade bottom level.
