The IHE Middle East Branch would like to invite you to their online technical CPD webinar on Tuesday 4th June 2024.


Roads have become a very vital infrastructure in enabling the transfer of freight as well as people, making the sustainable development of roads very important.

Authorities in Qatar are demanding faster and better quality for road construction whilst design & supervision consultants experience challenges in terms of pavement design, materials specifications, and construction in order to deliver the best quality and value for money expected by the client.

This presentation aims to talk about the principles of pavement engineering in terms of design and materials and will demonstrate challenges in pavement structure design and construction. Furthermore, latest innovation and sustainable materials used in pavement construction, which offers important industry and community benefits, are discussed.


Dr Pejman Dehdezi is a Chartered Engineer with 20 years of experience in pavement construction, maintenance, pavement failure investigation and rehabilitation, pavement structure and material design, QA/QC, and research. He achieved his doctorate in pavement engineering with a focus on sustainable construction from the University of Nottingham, UK.

Pejman is involved in various pavement design and construction projects in the UK and Middle East. In the UK, Pejman was mainly involved with National Highway’s (formerly Highways England) projects to improve the durability of asphalt pavement surfaces used on the UK road network. In Qatar, Pejman worked on major construction projects namely; Al-Khor Expressway, construction of the 33-km long highway between Doha and Al Khor as well as development and remediation works on Hamad International Airport’s western Taxiways and Runway.

Pejman is currently working in the Roads Projects Department (RPD) in PWA as a Pavement Expert managing pavement constructions in various areas in Qatar.
