Ten Sultanate projects have won national honours in the Meed quality awards.
The awards not only recognise the construction element of project delivery but also consider the value and quality of a project throughout its entire life cycle, from the design to engineering and construction and its wider contribution to society and to the environment, according to a statement.
The combined value of the 10 projects is estimated at $274 million.
The award winners were Hoehler and Al Salmy’s Conference and Exhibition Hall at GUtech, AWS Engineering’s BP Remediation Project at Port of Salalah, Atelier Pod and Engineering Innovation Design and Consulting’s Anantara Al Jebel Al Akhdar Resort Project, Musstir’s Al Baleed Resort Project, Larsen & Toubro’s construction of new 400KV grid station at Izki, Public Authority for Electricity and Water’s construction of extensions to the water supply network at Nizwa, AWS Engineering’s EPC for Sohar Refinery sea water cooling system revamp project, Six Construct’s Sohar Industrial Port Project and Larsen and Toubro’s Sultan Qaboos Youth Complex Project.
“The GCC projects market continues to be a key driver for regional growth, and part of its success in contributing to economic development in the region has been its continuing focus on developing high quality projects that generate jobs,” says Meed editorial director Richard Thompson.
