PHILADELPHIA, PA and MUSCAT, OMAN – December 19, 2018 – Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today it was awarded the Middle East’s “Project of the Year” by the Middle East Consultant for the project development of Muscat International Airport.
“The opening of the Muscat International Airport is a remarkable story culminating from the vision of The Ministry of Transport and Communications Oman, and we are honored to receive this award on their behalf and to be part of this magnificent project,” said Adel Merhi, Vice President, Country Manager Oman. “Our legacy is to continue the sustainable development of Oman by serving and honoring our client and the Omani people.”
The Middle East Consultant Awards recognize the innovation and achievements in the industry, rewarding outstanding individuals and companies. The Middle East Consultant Awards acknowledge the region’s best multi-discipline construction consultants, architects, and the multitude of specialists in structural engineering, MEP, urban design, sustainability, quantity surveyors, cost consultants, and the many other fields comprising the industry.
The project of the year award recognizes the top construction project in the Middle East. The Development of Muscat International Airport is one of the largest projects ever undertaken in the history of the Sultanate of Oman. 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 m2 – the equivalent to 80 football pitches. The structures required more than 31,100 tons of structural steel, or seven times the amount used in the Eiffel Tower, and almost 520,000m3 of concrete, or twice that in the Burj Khalifa. This project required more than 240 million hours worked with a peak workforce of 22,000 representing 41 different nationalities.
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 97-meter-tall air traffic control tower.
Hill deployed more than 350 team members to the project to undertake construction supervision, contract management and administration, scheduling, training, and knowledge transfer.
