Forty-five companies and individuals have been shortlisted for this year’s Construction Week Awards Oman.

It follows a successful inaugural event in 2012 and awards will be made in 10 categories including Contractor of the Year, Commercial Project of the Year and Engineer of the Year.

“The standard of entries this year has, if anything, been even higher than last and we have been impressed by the standard of entries,” said Stuart Matthews, the group editor responsible for ITP’s construction titles who is chairman of the judging panel.

“The entries that we have received this year demonstrate the breadth of ambitious projects being undertaken in Oman, from major road schemes to building projects, which have been executed in a unique way.”

The judging panel is made up of David Dunn, of Abram International, Brian Greenhalgh, of Macair, Ravindra Nath Teegala, owner of the Al Majal Group, Suresh Virmani, MD of Bahwan Engineering, Oman, David Skinner of Al Turki Enterprises, Oman, David Cummings, VP residential development at The Wave,Muscat, Jason Lewis, MD Limah Design Consultants and Gary Wright, editor of Construction Week.

Entrants were asked to answer a short selection of questions in not more than 500 words, though each was allowed to supply supplementary information and images to support the entry.

A selection of the best entries from the Oman event will be put forward to the GCC round of the awards programme, which takes place in Dubai, at the end of the year. There they will compete against entries from tributary events in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, plus those from the UAE.

In the 2012 programme, two entries from Oman picked up the overall GCC trophies: Omran carried through the success of its CSR Initiative entry picking up the prize for its Intajee programme; and Carillion Alawi collected the Hospitality Project of the Year award for its work on Muscat’s Royal Opera House.

“The awards last year, the first for Oman, were a milestone and showcased some of the impressive construction developments and initiatives being undertaken in the sultanate,” said Nick Smith, CEO of Abram International.

“They are an excellent way of raising the profile of both individual businesses and the sector as a whole.”
