CW Oman Awards: Contractor of the Year announced
Check out which firm was named the Sultanate’s top contractor during the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016
Carillion Alawi was crowned Contractor of the Year at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2016.
The trophy was presented to the company’s team in Oman at a gala dinner and winners’ ceremony held in Muscat last night.
Commenting on his firm’s activities in Oman, Abdullah Sarhan Al Alawi, business development manager at Carillion Alawi, said: “We performed well in 2015, and this year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary of continued presence in Oman.
“With our prestigious developments in the country, wherever you go, within 5km – especially in Muscat – you will see a project that has been built by Carillion Alawi during the past half century.
“We are doing very well in terms of health and safety, corporate social responsibility (CSR), and sustainability. We were confident that we could compete in this category; that’s why we submitted our nomination,” Al Alawi added.
Carillion Alawi has been a major construction organisation in Oman for over half a century. The firm has worked extensively in the Sultanate in conjunction with key clients, both public and private. Moreover, the contractor has successfully delivered some of the most prestigious projects in the country's history, according to Construction Week’s panel of judges.
One judge praised the company’s ability to secure and deliver Oman’s biggest and most challenging building projects, its contribution to the wider community, and the “excellent range of projects that it has delivered to the highest standards of quality, safety, and sustainability”.
In the words of another judge: “[Carillion Alawi] employs simply the best construction professionals in Oman.”
Also shortlisted for the Contractor of the Year Award were Larsen & Toubro (Oman) LLC, Oman Building & Contracting Company, and Zubair Corporation.
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).
