Carillion Alawi secured the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Year prize at the Construction Week Oman 2015 Awards.

The company's Support Sustainable Communities programme was picked by judges ahead of shortlisted schemes from Larsen & Toubro and Towell Construction Co, as well as a Date Donation Drive programme at The Wave, Muscat project that was highly commended.

Carillion Alawi's sustainability manager Raja Packirisamy said that the firm had a strategy to involve 4% of its employees (236 staff members in 2014) on engagement schemes with "hard-to-reach" groups such as physically and mentally challenged people, with a view recruiting workers locally, where possible.

"We have another target of having 10% of our employees involved in internal and external community engagement activities," he added.

"Altogether, 1,330 employees spent their time on community activities. It is a fantastic achievement.

The Construction Week Oman 2015 Awards took place at the Muscatt Grand Hyatt on 30 March. The awards were sponsored by platinum sponsor Aecom, gold sponsors Famco, Oman Electromechanical Company and Logical Decking, category sponsors CCC, Services & Trade Co and Alemco Zawawi, as well as by aluminium extruder Napco.
