2019 CW Power 100: Adnan Nalwala of Oman's Al Ansari ranked #90
Executive director of Omani builder Al Ansari enters 2019 Construction Week Power 100 ranking
Adnan Nalwala is the executive director of Oman-based builder Al Ansari, which operates in three verticals – construction, building materials, and engineering products.
Nalwala says the company has continued to grow despite a general market-wide reduction in demand over the last 12 months.
Founded in 1975, the Al Ansari Trading group operates in three verticals – construction, building materials, and engineering products. As such, its umbrella of entities includes familiar names such as Natural Stone Oman and UAE and Akar Technical Services.
The former firm deals in the supply, processing, and installation of natural stone and marble products, while Akar Technical Services provides landscaping and electromechanical services.
In Oman, Al Ansari’s mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) activities account for 15-20% of its total turnover within the contracting division, and of this figure, 60% is delivered for external clients. In Dubai, 65% of the group’s business concerns the landscaping sector, with MEP work making up the remaining share.
Among the contractor’s ongoing projects in the GCC is a “sizeable” Petroleum Development Oman’s (PDO) job, and the company is also working on Duqm Refinery – with Petrofac as the client, and PDO as co-client – on a separate project.
