Atkins Global's Bijoy Varma picked up a CW Oman Awards trophy.

Bijoy Varma of Atkins Global has won Project Manager of the Year honours at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019, held at the Kempinski Hotel Muscat on 25 March, 2019.

Varma was praised for his ability to motivate his team and empower staff to strive for the highest possible standards, while also delivering complex projects, such as the five-star Marriott Hotel at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre.

One jury member commented: “By providing his knowledge during the bid stage, [Varma] is working to proactively influence project outcome from the offset.”

Highly amended in this year’s six-strong shortlist was Hoehler + alSalmy’s Ahmed Al Amri, who boasts an impressive achievement in playing a leading role in fast-tracking three projects since the turn of 2018.

These include the renovation of Crowne Plaza Hotel Muscat, with Al Amri receiving high praise from colleagues and clients.

Also shortlisted alongside Varma and Al Amri were G V Ajayan of Bahwan Engineering Company; Jayawardana Piyadasa from KEO International Consultants; Nitin Bhosale from Lalbuksh Voltas Engineering; and R Rengasamy from S&T Interiors & Contracting.

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.
