UAE-based landscape and urban design practice Cracknell is planning to open an office in Oman, Commercial Outdoor Design can exclusively reveal.

The company, which already has offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, is in the process of opening a branch office in Muscat, Paul Cracknell, managing director and founder of Cracknell, told COD in a recent interview.

"We are rapidly expanding in the Middle East region. As well as opening an office in Muscat early next year we are also looking at opening offices in other Gulf locations in the near future," Cracknell revealed.

In addition, the firm, which offers a range of services including masterplanning, urban design, environmental planning and landscape architecture, is establishing its own office building at the Dubai Investment Park, he said. It expects this building to be complete in about 18 months.

Established in Dubai since 1993, Cracknell opened its second office in the region, in Abu Dhabi, in 2004. It also has an office in London.

The company currently employs more than 160 people in the Middle East.
