Residential Mix Use Development wins Innovative Energy Award

Muttawar Omani Co. SAOC, a subsidiary of GLOREI (Global Omani Development & Investment Company SAOC) project has been awarded the “Innovative Energy Project of the Year” at the Construction Week Awards – Oman held on Tuesday 27th March at The Grand Hyatt, Muscat.

A combined entry from Atkins and Faithful + Gould, this Residential Mix-Use project was part of an event which has taken place for the first time in Oman. The event honored the accomplishments of construction and development in Oman.

The architectural design of this Mix Use Development takes into key consideration an energy efficient project that will be economically sustainable for the residents without a significant implication on the cost to the developers. The smart building services engineering of this unique project would define a new energy efficient standard which would not only help in reducing the operational costs of the building but will reduce its carbon footprint as well- this has always been one of the main aims of GLOREI. At the same time, the company endeavors to ensure that construction is carried out in accordance with the best international practices and standards.

GLOREI has previously won an Award in Cityscape Dubai,2010  as the “Best Environmental Project” for an Eco Tourism project in Salalah. This illustrates how fully committed the company is to sustainable development.
As the project would be the first known residential building in Oman to target a LEED certification, it would definitely have green sustainable elements as part of its brand which will be unveiled when the complete project is launched.
Eng. Mohammed Al Ghassani, CEO of GLOREI and board member of Muttawar Omani Co. SAOC has said “After many sessions of brainstorming with Faithful + Gould (Project Managers) and Atkins (the design and supervision consultants), our vision was translated into a superior quality project which would cater to the need of good housing solutions in Oman. We are proud of this accomplishment and the award stands testimony to the distinction of the project elements, and recognition for the management’s belief in environment sustainability.”

“It shows an appreciation for change in the thought process and achievements of the Omani construction industry and this award celebrates that change.”
