SSH to work on Damac-Omran's Mina Al Sultan Qaboos in Oman
Consultancy will provide masterplanning and infrastructure works for the project, including its Bab Al Mina zone
Construction consultancy SSH has won a contract for Oman’s $2bn (OMR770m) Mina Al Sultan Qaboos that Dubai Financial Market-listed developer Damac Properties is co-developing with Oman Tourism Development Company (Omran).
As part of the contract, SSH will provide masterplanning and infrastructure completion for Mina Sultan Al Qaboos.
Additionally, the firm will carry out design consultancy services for the buildings and components of Zone 1 of Mina Sultan Al Qaboos, which refers to Bab Al Mina.
Spanning a built-up area of roughly 15ha, Bab Al Mina Zone will be home to a four-star hotel, residential plots comprising 430 units, and retail and entertainment facilities.
Commenting on the contract win, general manager for Oman at SSH, Omar Nuri, said: “We look forward to delivering an outstanding development that will have a positive social as well as economic impact on Oman."
Mina Sultan Qaboos Waterfront Regeneration Project, as it is formally called, includes two main zones, including tourist port regeneration areas, and other project sites such as Shotayfi Village, Al Rabia hilltop parcels, and Hay Al Mina.
News of SSH's win comes a day after Damac revealed that more than 100 companies had shown interest in construction and installation packages for Mina Al Sultan Qaboos.
The Dubai-based firm said the first package for Mina Al Sultan Qaboos would be tendered in July 2019, and ground will be broken on the project in November 2019.
