Qatar National Master Plan
Place dynamix’s directors were involved in preparation of the Qatar National Master Plan (QNMP) for which our Chairman, Ian Lyne was the Project Director. The project has a planning horizon to 2032 and was completed over three years. The master plan provided all of the planning and development management tools for Qatar, including the principle document the Qatar National Development Framework (QNDF), branding and placemaking strategies, Municipal Spatial Development Plans (MSDPs), Action Area Plans for key sites such as West Bay, various Downtown Doha zones, Al Rayyan South Metropolitan Centre, plus town centre plans for Umm Qarn, Al Shamal and Umm Slal Mohammed.
The QNMP is seen as crucial part of the Governments objectives for the country and is the physical tool for realising the Qatar Vision. The suite of documents also included urban design codes, design regulations, streetscape and public realm guidelines, planning standards, training and capacity building, procedures and a suite of plans, including transportation, infrastructure and full GIS capability.
The QNMP was prepared for Oriental Consultants on behalf of the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning.
