Towell Construction and Co was crowned Contractor of the Year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2015 held at the Grand Hyatt in Muscat on Monday.

Chief executive officer MKR Sai said the Omani company had grown rapidly over the last eight years and now employs 4,000 people.

Speaking after picking up the award, Sai said: "The credit goes to the team who have made it possible. Everyone has put in a lot of effort to achieve this."

The firm is currently delivering 269 units at Saraya Bandar Jissah near Muscat and is almost finished constructing the new Supreme Court building in Muscat for the Royal Court Affairs.

The Construction Week Oman Awards 2015 were judged by an independent panel of seven judges, made up of a range of industry experts. If a judge’s company had entered a category then they didn’t evaluate that category.

A total of 13 categories were open for nomination plus a Lifetime Achievement award picked by Construction Week’s editorial team

A big thank you must go to our sponsors who helped to make the evening a great success. They include: Aecom, Famco, Oman Electromechanical Contracting, Logical Decking, CCC, Services & Trade Company, Alemco Zawawi and NAPCO.

The Construction Week Oman Award 2015 was the first of four award evenings to be holding across the GCC this year, with other events set to follow in Qatar and Saudi Arabia, before we hold our GCC finals in December.
