CW Oman Awards 2019: Khatib & Alami scoops commercial prize
Khatib & Alami wins Commercial Project of the Year title as S&T Interiors & Contracting is highly commended for The Waterfront
Khatib & Alami has won Commercial Project of the Year honours at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019, held in Muscat, after heading up a six-strong short list of developments in one of the event’s most sought-after categories.
Judges praised the consultancy's work on a specialist hospital extension project for its engineering genius and creativity, recognising the facility also not only its size and scale, but for its impact on Omani society as well.
The expanded hospital will host the biggest accident and emergency, and intensive care unit departments in Oman.
The Commercial Project of the Year category has historically been among Construction Week Oman Awards’ most coveted honours, and this year was no exception, as evidenced by the quality of the shortlist.
Highly commended in the category was S&T Interiors & Contracting for its work on The Waterfront in Shatti Al Qurum, Muscat.
The 4.6ha project is one of the largest sustainable developments in the densely populated area of Muscat, and has been prequalified as Leed Gold structure.
A further four projects were in the 2019 running for commercial project of the year, including Voltas for Muscat’s Al Araimi Boulevard Mall. Also shortlisted were Salam Square & Gallery by Hoehler + alSalmy, and Vox Cinemas at City Centre Sohar by Douglas OHI.
Construction Week Oman Awards 2019's winners were named at a gala ceremony on 25 March, 2019, at the Kempinski Hotel Muscat.
The Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 were supported by platinum sponsor S&T Interiors and Contracting; gold sponsor HFW; heavy commercial vehicles partners Mohsin Haider Darwish and Ford Trucks; supporting sponsor CIOB; show partner The Big Show Oman; and intelligence sponsor ProTenders.
