Find out who was named the Sultanate’s top engineer of the year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016
Parsons’ Kashinath Thodupunoori was crowned Engineer of the Year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016.
Thodupunoori received the accolade in recognition of his ability to handle a heavy workload without compromising quality. He received his trophy during a gala dinner and winners’ ceremony in Muscat last night.
Commenting on the award, Thodupunoori, senior highway design engineer at Parsons, told Construction Week: “I am really very happy to receive such a recognition. It feels great to be recognised for my hard work, punctuality, discipline, and quality of delivery that I have produced over the years.
“Right now, I am working on Mall of Oman, which is a complicated urban project. For most of my tenure, I have worked on urban projects, and Parsons has always provided me with a good platform to develop my body of work,” he added.
Thodupunoori proved particularly popular amongst Construction Week’s panel of industry judges, who described him as “excellent” and “able”. The Parsons engineer received universal praise for his work on Darsait Wadi Kabir, which involved project delivery in an extremely congested area.
“Parsons has always recognised me for my work, and continuously supports its staff members for their betterment,” continued Thodupunoori.
“In the future, I would love to add to Parsons’ value and continue to deliver a high quality of work. The company – like me – wants to work on complicated, major projects,” he concluded.
Also shortlisted for the Engineer of the Year Award in Oman were Ibn Khaldun Almadean Engineering Consultants’ MNR Gupta, and ALEMCO’s Steven Little.
Construction Week would like to thank its panel of industry judges for selecting the ultimate winners of this year’s awards categories.
We would also like to extend our gratitude to this year’s sponsors, without whom the CW Oman Awards would not be possible. The event was held in partnership with The Big Show Oman, Gold Category Sponsors Aecom and FAMCO, Category Sponsors Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) and S&T Interiors and Contracting, and Official Aluminium Extruder, National Aluminium Products Company (NAPCO).
