Desco was appointed to deliver the MEP design for a 58000m2 extension to the existing Aspire dome, at the heart of Qatar’s Aspire Zone, which was originally designed for the Asian Games in 2006.

The new extension will provide a state-of-the-art football performance centre arranged over four levels with range of pools including a hydrotherapy pool, hot and cold plunge pools, a swirl pool, treadmill pool, a stretching pool and three resistance jet pools; other facilities include gym and physiotherapy suites, indoor running track, bio-mechanic suite, performance analysis facilities, offices, changing areas, cinema and multi-media suites.

In excess of 10million QAR of LED lighting has been used throughout the scheme to assist in whole life cost and maintenance, creating a sustainable lighting solution in this world class facility.
