AECOM is providing lead consultancy services for the monumental Mall of Oman project in the Sultanate of Oman. This new retail destination will feature 350 outlets in a 137,000 square meter retail space.
Mall of Oman has a LEED Gold target. If successfully 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.
The Mall of Oman is the inaugural mega-mall for the Sultanate and will play a leading role in putting Oman on the retail map and supporting the national vision of a tourism industry. This project will not only enhances the client’s already significant retail investment but will also secure a proportion of the Omani spend, currently being lost primarily to the UAE.
In addition to lead consultancy services, AECOM provided full building engineering and architecture design. We are currently providing construction supervision services during construction. The mall is due to open in Q3 of 2019.
Construction Week magazine awarded Mall of Oman Commercial Project of the Year 2017.
