Voltas Oman was named Contractor of the Year at the CW Oman Awards 2019.

Winning top honours at the Construction Week Oman Awards 2019 was Voltas, which was named Contractor of the Year after a solid 12 months of delivering complex construction projects in Oman.

The jury was impressed by the firm’s expertise in value engineering and project planning and execution, commending the group’s work in a diverse range of sectors.

Having recently work on major Omani projects including Sezad’s sewage treatment plan in Duqm and the Kempinski Hotel Muscat, the company has had a profound impact on the GCC building sector since the 1970s.

The firm, part of India’s Tata Group, has also delivered mechanical, electrical, and plumbing services for schemes such as Oman Across Ages Museum and Jotun Paints Factory.

One judge praised Voltas’s “impressive growth during difficult market conditions” in 2018.

Highly commended in this year’s Contractor of the Year category was S&T Interiors and Contracting. 

The group received plaudits for a number of reasons, namely the impact of its work on the socio-economic development of Oman by supporting in-country value initiatives and promoting the use of local companies on its projects.

Its clientele includes Oman’s Ministry of Defence, Royal Oman Police, and Orpic, among numerous others. 

Also shortlisted for contracting honours was Oman Shapoorji (Osco), which has delivered its expertise for some of the sultanate’s most-awaited developments in the last 12 months, including the Opera House of Musical Arts for Royal Courts Affairs.

Larsen & Toubro Oman (L&T Oman) rounded off an incredibly strong category, having worked on some of the sultanate’s most high profile schemes over the past year, such as Duqm Airport and the eight-lane dual carriageway of Batinah Expressway.

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.
