The sultanate's top contractor will be named at CW Oman Awards 2019 on 25 March.

The shortlisted contractors for the upcoming Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 can now be revealed.

Each year, this category of the CW Oman Awards attracts the top names from the sultanate’s tight-knit contracting sector.

The shortlist for CW Oman Awards 2019’s Contractor of the Year category includes S&T Interiors and Contracting, which in the last 12 months has worked on major Omani projects, such as The Waterfront.

Its clientele includes Oman’s Ministry of Defence, Royal Oman Police, and Orpic, among numerous others. S&T employs more than 5,000 professionals and craftsmen, and is also a major proponent of the Omanisation programme in the sultanate.

Also on the shortlist is Voltas, a part of India’s Tata Group, which operates in Oman through two subsidiaries. One of these, Voltas Oman, specialises in mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) projects, whilst the other, Lalbuksh Voltas Engineering Services (Lalvol), is known for its expertise in the water project sector.

In the last 12 months, Voltas has worked on major Oman projects such as Sezad’s sewage treatment plant in Duqm; Grand Mosque Ghala; and Kempinski Hotel Muscat. The firm has also delivered MEP services for schemes such as Oman Across Ages Museum and Jotun Paints Factory.

Also shortlisted for contracting honours at the CW Oman Awards 2019 is Oman Shapoorji (Osco), which has delivered its expertise for some of the sultanate's most-awaited developments in the last 12 months, such as Royal Opera House of Musical Arts for Royal Court Affairs. 

Osco's list of ongoing developments includes Package 3 of Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre for Omran; Phase 2C of Ras Al Hamra for Petroleum Development Oman; and Green Peak Adventure Resort Jabal Akhdar for Oman Investment Fund. 

The final entry on this year’s Contractor of the Year shortlist is Larsen & Toubro (Oman), another titan of industry that operates in the sultanate with key oversight from its Indian headquarters.

L&T Oman has, in the past year, worked on some of Oman’s most high-profile schemes, such as Duqm Airport and the eight-lane dual carriageway of Batinah Expressway, which as a whole, comprises 1,106 concrete channels, 25 wadi-crossing bridges, 17 overhead bridges, and 12 tunnels.

However, the Omani firm has also showcased L&T’s ability in the core infrastructure sector in the last year. In 2018, L&T Oman continued its work on Sumail Industrial Estate’s infrastructure facilities for client Public Establishment for Industrial Estates.

L&T Oman also worked on the 400/132kV Qabel Grid Station, the Ghala Heights, and 400kV Ibri-Izki transmission line projects in 2018. All three schemes saw L&T Oman engaged with the state-owned Oman Electricity Transmission Company as its client.
