AECOM is providing lead consultancy services for the monumental Mall of Oman project, the sultanate’s inaugural mega-mall. Majid Al Futtaim’s (MAF) biggest lifestyle destination in the sultanate will comprise 145,000 square meters of retail space, dining outlets and a range of lifestyle experiences.

When open, the mall will play a leading role in putting Oman on the region’s retail map and will enhance the client’s already significant retail footprint across the Gulf.

Mall of Oman has a LEED Gold target. If achieved, it will be the first major retail project in Oman to obtain this prestigious accreditation. The project has also invested in a central cooling plant, photovoltaic technology and engaged with the local authorities to ensure that the surrounding infrastructure benefits from the project.

The project was fully developed in BIM, ensuring design coordination and assisting with the procurement process.

In addition to lead consultancy services, AECOM provided full building engineering and architecture design as well as construction supervision services during construction. The mall is set to open in 2021

In 2017, Construction Week magazine awarded Mall of Oman Commercial Project of the Year.
