1. General

1.1 Background

The State of Qatar is a peninsula located on the northeast coast of the much larger Arabian
Peninsula with a total land area of approximately 11,500 square kilometres. The population
is approximately 2.6 million inhabitants with almost 83% of the inhabitants residing in Doha
and its main suburb Al-Rayyan.
The State of Qatar has experienced rapid economic growth over the last several years. This
economic growth has resulted in increased demand for the State to construct and provide
first-class infrastructure such as government buildings (hospital, schools, and the like)
transportation networks (harbours, airports, highways, roads etc.) and utility services (power,
water, sewerage, waste disposal etc.).
This increased demand has consequently placed extraordinary requirements on the relevant
government entities and their resources. It has become necessary to enhance the capacity
of these government entities in order to deliver the required infrastructure.
The Public Works Authority (PWA), also known as Ashghal, is responsible for the planning,
design, procurement, construction, assets management, and delivery of infrastructure and
building works in the State of Qatar.
The ASHGHAL (PWA) contributes to the economic and social development of the State of
Qatar through implementing public projects in accordance with the approved plans of the
State. In coordination with other agencies in the State, the ASHGHAL (PWA) implements and
programs the execution of public projects consistent with the approved State objectives and
allocated budget.
The ASHGHAL (PWA)’s tasks also include preparation of studies, designs, and technical
specifications for the public projects; contracting for implementation of public projects and
overseeing the work; implementing major maintenance projects according to the plans,
programs and studies developed; as well as implementation, management, operation and
maintenance of drainage, groundwater, surface water and water treatment projects.
Through its major departments, the ASHGHAL (PWA) strives to develop the State’s
infrastructure and public amenities to the level of international standard achieved by
developed countries and communities, and in general, it contributes to the overall sustainable
development of the State in economic and social areas of the State.
1.1.1 The PWA consists of administrative units set out below:
A. First: Administrative units under the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning: The
Internal Audit Unit.
B. Second: Administrative units under the President including Office of the President, Public
Relations and Communication Unit, Legal Affairs Department and Corporate
Development & Planning Department.
1.1.2 The ASHGHAL (PWA)’s major business unit consists of five major sectors as below:
a. Asset Affairs
b. Buildings Affairs

3.1.1 General

The State of Qatar is in a transitional phase of highway assets and management


improvement. Ashghal aims to embrace new technology, focusing on sustainability, and apply
this to the highway infrastructure of Primary, Secondary and Tertiary roads under the control of
Ashghal, Public Works Authority for The State of Qatar and other areas as required, such as;
sikas/foot/cycle paths and landscape/recreational areas.

It is the intention of Ashghal to specify energy efficient, green and economically sustainable initiatives
incorporating low carbon technology and thus embracing the deployment of LED luminaires in The
State of Qatar.

This specification aims to initiate the investigation, evaluation and application of Light Emitting
Diode (LED) technology to all exterior lighting works. The o u t c o m e of t h i s specification and
associated evaluations and trials will be the production of an approved suite of exterior LED luminaires
for implementing on the Primary, Secondary and Tertiary roads under the control of Ashghal, Public
Works Authority and other areas as required.

This specification stipulates the requirements for any Light Emitting Diode (LED) luminaire that is
intended for use as an exterior light in highway areas under control of Ashghal, Public Works Authority
and other areas as required. No luminaire s ha l l be utilised or installed without prior approval and
written authority of Ashghal. Luminaire shall be defined so as to include all associated components
to enable its operation.

The luminaire shall comply with all applicable standards and requirements specified herein. The
luminaire shall be purpose designed for LED light sources only. The luminaire shall be suitable for
lighting specified areas within the rights of way, to a predefined lighting standard. Luminaires originally
designed to be used with non-LED sources and proposed subsequently with LED light engines shall
not be considered.

Luminaires shall be commercially available and shall be delivered in a protective covering completely
assembled and operationally ready, all associated component parts shall be new and unused.
Luminaires shall be “future proofed” by allowing the LED modules to be upgraded easily in situ,
as LED efficiency improves. Upgrading of luminaires or replacement of faulty components, with
manufacturer approved components shall not have any detrimental impact whatsoever on the
luminaires warranty. Prototypes shall not be accepted.

A sample of each luminaire type, or model, shall be provided for evaluation and approval by Ashghal
prior to authorisation or installation together with the necessary test and photometric data in a suitable
format stipulated by Ashghal. The manufacturer shall provide all samples and requested d a t a at
their own cost. The manufacturer shall also facilitate authorised Ashghal representatives, and/or
their appointed representative, to examine the test and manufacturing facilities and witness
manufacturing processes and sample testing related to the luminaire and associated components
submitted for evaluation, at no cost to Ashghal or their appointed representative.

Equivalent or more onerous standards can be proposed, by the manufacturer, as an alternative


to the detailed standards, with the exception of Qatar documents. Evidence shall be submitted
detailing the equivalent or more onerous sections that deviates from the intended standard.

This specification shall be incorporated into the Qatar Construction Standards, currently QCS 2014,
section 6, part 12 Road Lighting. This QCS shall be referenced in all street lighting specifications.

Manufacturers are expected to and shall notify Ashghal of any errors or omissions within this document.

specifications of a product and a standardised description on how to measure
these quality criteria. The following list of quality criteria, as detailed in the Lighting Industry
Liaison Group – A Guide to the Specification of LED Lighting Products 2012, will be considered
during the evaluation process.

3.1.24.1 Rated input power. The rated input power shows the amount of energy consumed by
a luminaire, including its power supply. It is expressed in watts.
3.1.24.2 Rated luminous flux. This is the light emitted by the luminaire which is expressed in
lumens. For LED luminaires Absolute photometric values shall be used.
3.1.24.3 LED luminaire efficacy. The measured initial luminous flux divided by the measured
initial input power of the same individual LED luminaire. It is expressed in lumens per watt.
3.1.24.4. Luminous intensity distribution. The spatial distribution of the luminous flux

polar diagram representing the light intensity as a function of angle about a light source. It is
expressed in cd.

In order to classify the different types of white light, the concept of colour temperature is applied
which is described as the colour impression of a perfect black-body radiator at certain

temperatures. The initial CCT value classification for the photometric code can be obtained by
taking the initial CCT value divided by 100.

b. Rated Colour Rendering Index (CRI).


Although light sources may have the same colour appearance, this doesn’t necessarily mean
that colour surfaces will look the same under them. The initial CRI value classification for the
photometric code can be obtained by using the following intervals:

Cod CRI Colour rendering

6 Range
57-66 properties
Poor
7 67-76 Moderate

9 87-100 Excellent

c. Rated chromaticity co-ordinate values both initial and maintained.


MacAdam ellipses are scaled up to a larger size of 3x, 5x or 7x the original. This is indicated
as a 3-step, 5-step or 7-step MacAdam ellipse. The initial and maintained chromaticity co-
ordinates are measured for the maintained value at 25% of rated life up to a maximum of 6000

d. Lumen maintenance code.


The code number does not imply a prediction of achievable life time. The maintained luminous
