French construction firm Bouygues Construction said on Monday it had won a 950-million-euro (1.4 billion-dollar) contract in the Gulf state of Qatar to build an office and shopping complex.

It said its subsidiary Bouygues Batiment International would build nine 18-52-storey office towers, a five-star hotel, a shopping mall, a conference center, a mosque and parking garages on the site, located in the Qatari capital Doha.

The contract was awarded by Barwa Financial District, a unit of semi-public Barwa Real Estate, the biggest property developer in Qatar.

Bouygues said the project would take 3.5 years to complete and would employ up to 6,000 people.
