The W Hotel Muscat features on this year's shortlist for Hospitality Project of the Year at the CW Oman Awards 2019.

As with years prior, the Hospitality Project of the Year category of the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 has attracted significant interest from the industry.

Muscat's Kempinski Hotel and Apartments and Mysk by Shaza feature among the six projects shortlisted in the category for the CW Oman Awards 2019.

Contractor Douglas OHI has nominated its work on the renovation of the Crowne Plaza Muscat, which began in May 2018 and took a mere 14 weeks to complete. The success of the project, the firm said in its nomination, came down to the "complex nature of the internal and external demolition works". Oman-based consultancy Hoehler + Al Salmy also appears on this year’s hospitality shortlist for its work on the hotel.

Kempinski Hotel & Apartments is another high-profile name appearing on the 2019 hospitality shortlist. It has been nominated by mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) giant Voltas, which delivered MEP services in line with the client's required international standards and codes.

Voltas also nominated itself for its work on Muscat hotel Mysk by Shaza. In a separate application, the firm said it developed more than 200 qualified workmen during the course of the project, which started operations on time and within budget in November 2017.

A joint venture of Murray Roberts and Bahwan Contracting Company is also in the running for its work on the construction of Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre Package 4: Hotel 1. Of its numerous achievements, the firm achieved 9.6 million loss-time injury-free man hours on the project, as outlined in its nomination document.

W Hotel Muscat features as the final hospitality project on the 2019 shortlist, nominated by government-owned Oman Tourism Development Company (Omran).

To ensure that strict standards regarding health and safety are upheld at all times, Omran said it has adopted a set of core values that emphasise "international performance standards in the areas of sustainability, health and safety, labour practices, and philanthropy" to develop its key schemes.

Now in their eighth year, the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 will be held at Kempinski Hotel Muscat on 25 March. Places to attend the event are selling out quickly, so make sure you don’t miss out on booking a spot for to attend the gala dinner.
