KBAS is one of the leading Grade 1 contracting companies in Qatar with a deserved reputation for quality work, total client satisfaction, optimum efficiency and on-time completion. The company has contributed to the industrial and commercial development of Qatar, both as an important direct contractor to Government departments and as sub-contractor to International Companies completing major projects in Qatar. For more than a quarter of a century JBK/KBAS has specialized in :

  •  Infrastructures
  •  Roads
  •  Runways & Aprons
  •  Earthmoving
  •  Electrification Projects

As the company has developed, it has chosen a strategy of vertical integration, producing many of the materials and services used in it’s primary activities ‘in house’, reducing dependence on outside sources of supply and affording superior project control and programming.

With the largest inventory of plant and equipment in Qatar, coupled with Aggregate production, Asphalt production, Pre-cast facilities (including blocks, kerbs, manhole covers, gullies, paving slabs, and interlocking paving) and Ready mixed concrete, the company is ideally suited to ‘fast track’ contracts.
