CW Awards Oman: Hoehler + Partner bags two prizes
Firm wins Commercial Project of the Year & Project Manager of the Year
Hoehler + Partner, an architecture and engineering firm, had a big impact on the Construction Week Awards: Oman, collecting two trophies and three highly commended mentions.
The company picked up Commercial Project of the Year for its work on the German University of Technology, with the judges describing the project as something clearly outside of the normal Oman approach to architecture.
"Although full of straight lines, these are balanced with warm and inviting patterns that draw you into interior spaces that are a surprise," said one judge.
Hoehler + Partner's Richard Lisker was also named Project Manager of the Year for his role on the delivery of the university project.
The company earned a highly commended mention in the Consultant of the Year category and Muhammed Sultan Al Salmy was highly commended in both the Engineer and Construction Executive of the Year categories. The accolades mark an impressive awards debut for a relative newcomer to the Oman market.
The awards were announced at a gala ceremony held in Muscat, which saw 12 accolades presented to a selection of industry-leading companies, projects and individuals.
Selected finalists from the Construction Week Awards: Oman, which was sponsored by Famco, will get a further chance to claim success at the GCC edition of the Construction Week Awards, to be held in Dubai, on 11 December.
Entries to the awards were submitted online and winners were selected by a panel of nine judges.
This is the second year Construction Week has run an awards programme in Oman.
A full review of all the winners will appear in the March 30 issue of Construction Week.
