PICE Qatar celebrates 15th Founding Anniversary



Exactly 5,481 days after its momentous formal inception on the 25th of May 2007, the Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE)— Qatar Chapter celebrated its 15th Founding Anniversary on Friday, May 27, 2022 at the Qatar Bowling Center in Doha, Qatar. The one-day event was attended by active chapter members together with their families and friends. Several sporting activities and indoor games were lined up that enlivened the atmosphere of the venue. It was a welcome respite for most of the participating Civil Engineers, a refreshing break after another week of toil in Qatar’s construction industry.
