Check out which firm was named the Sultanate’s top consultancy during the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016
Parsons was crowned Consultant of the Year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016.
The trophy was presented to the company’s team for Oman at a gala dinner and winners’ ceremony held in Muscat last night.
Commenting on the award, Gary Adams, Parsons’ president in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, said: “It feels very special to receive such an accolade. It’s fantastic; it’s been a long time for us in Oman, and it feels great to be recognised for our work here.
“Parsons has a very strong focus on quality, and it’s nice to see that our company has been recognised by the industry. Such accolades help us to work for our betterment in the future,” he noted.
Parsons has worked on more than 400 projects in Oman over the course of the last decade. The consultancy has been involved in the infrastructure development of the Sultanate for over 25 years, having supported many of the country’s landmark infrastructure developments.
One of Construction Week’s industry judges described the firm as “the go-to team in Oman when it comes to complex infrastructure projects”, adding that Parsons has “played a key role in getting the country to where it is today”.
Another member of the panel noted the impressive range and depth of Parsons’ experience in the Sultanate, in addition to its investments in, and contributions to, the country’s evolution.
Adams concluded: “2015 was a good year for us. Our annual turnover was just shy of $3bn. We will strive to work even harder and win more projects for the company [in Oman] during the coming years.”
Also shortlisted for the Consultant of the Year Award were Atkins, Design Group Engineering Consultants (DGEC), Driver Consult Oman LLC, Hoehler + Salmy, KEO International Consultants, kgdmt | architects + engineers, and SSH.
Construction Week would like to thank its panel of industry judges for selecting the ultimate winners of this year’s awards categories.
