The judges noted that Atkins entry demonstrated a very good year for the company, with it being awarded some key design commissions during 2012.

Among the company's notable achievements was the introduction of a graduate training scheme, and the role that the company is playing in bringing sustainable design methods to the country.

Atkins operations director in Oman David Hutton and its principle architect in the Middle East Rohan Thotabaduge collected the award from C K Khanna, corporate general manager of Bahwan Engineering Co.

“This is a recognition of hard work and team effort,” said Hutton. “And it is down to the approach of the team.The team listens to clients and aim to exceed their expectations.”

Thotabaduge added: “It is also about genuine carbon critical design. People talk about sustainable but we design buildings which deliver what we say.”

Highly commended in the category was Hoehler + Partner. The judges noted that the organisation has made an excellent start with impressive growth over the initial years.
Matthew Squires, managing director of Atkins in Oman, also picked up the Construction Executive of the Year award.
