The deadline for the annual 2015 Construction Week Oman awards, has been extended by a week. Nominations now close at the end of business in Monday 23 February 2015.
The awards are split in to four separate categories: those for individual excellence; awards for company achievements; recognition for projects, and a category for initiatives implemented throughout the year.
There are 14 awards in total, including a Lifetime Achievement Award. While most of the awards require companies to nominate themselves or be nominated and explain why they believe they should be considered, the Lifetime Achievement Award will be determined by Construction Week’s editorial staff.
Entering is easy: nominations can be done online, and simply require entrants to prove their worth in a 500-word (or less) essay.

The three most prestigious are for individual achievement. The award for Construction Executive of the Year will go to the senior executive who can demonstrate the greatest impact on his or her construction-related business in the 12-month period. Last year, Dr. Hamed Hashim Al Dhahab, CEO of Al Watanyiah United, Engineering & Contracting, was honoured with the title, with judges describing him as an "outstanding candidate" who wowed and scored highly among all of them.
Engineer of the Year was Safi Ur Rehman Mujahid of Al Hassan Engineering who gained recognition by proving his worth both to his company and the region's construction industry by successfully completing his projects and by passing on his knowledge to others.
Ahmed Zeinelabdin from Atkins Global was named Project Manager of the year on account of “his dedication to his firm’s clients and for an excellent level of commitment to delivering successful projects”.
Zeinelabdin, who at the time had been project managing for seven years, said: "It is actually quite an interesting award for me because I’ve put a lot of effort into this and it’s nice to have something that is recognised by the industry locally.
"For me this is a milestone, and I just want to say that it is also due to the team work and the effort of my colleagues, not just me, but everyone working together to a common goal."
He added: "As a project manager you are playing with time, quality and budget – all of them you have to sort of mould them together and the trick is not to compromise one of them, and constantly monitoring these three parameters, so for me one of my things that makes my hair grey, is doing all of these things together."
