Hill wins top award for Muscat airport project

PHILADELPHIA, December 2, 2018

Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has received the 'Infrastructure Project of the Year' award for its work on Muscat International Airport at the Big Project Middle East Award gala in Dubai.

The winning project, Development of Muscat International Airport, is one of the largest ever to be undertaken in the history of Oman, said a statement from Hills International.

The 29-gate passenger terminal building, which features state-of-the-art technology, will accommodate 20 million passengers annually. The terminal sits on a floorplate of 418,202 sq m – equivalent to 80 football pitches, it stated.

The structures required more than 31,100 T of structural steel - seven times the amount used in the Eiffel Tower. They also required almost 520,000 cu m of concrete - twice that of the Burj Khalifa, it added.

“We are honoured to receive this well-recognized badge of excellence on behalf of our client, The Ministry of Transport and Communications Oman, and to have contributed to the development of Oman’s success in the region,” said Adel Merhi, the VP and Country Manager for Oman.

"We are also proud of Hill International’s contribution to Omanization and the continuous knowledge transfer to the Omani team on the project. The recognition of this award is a testament to our mutual collaboration," he stated.

The Infrastructure Project of the Year award recognizes the top Middle East infrastructure construction projects.

Judges consider the size, scale, and complexity of each nomination, while also assessing the work from all multivariate stakeholders – including the client, consultant, contractor, and subcontractors, said the top US group.

The Muscat International Airport encompasses 96 check-in counters, 29 boarding bridges, 30 remote aircraft stands, 10 bus-boarding lounges, a 90-room hotel, and a 97m high air traffic control tower.-TradeArabia News Service
