AECOM provided lead consultancy services for the monumental Mall of Oman project, the sultanate’s inaugural mega-mall. Majid Al Futtaim’s 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 is LEED Platinum rated (USGBC) making it the largest building in Oman and the country’s first major retail project to obtain this prestigious accreditation. This project has many proven ecological benefits and has the interests of the community at its core. The sustainability implementation plan went above and beyond to not only secure the LEED Platinum rating, but ensuring the health and wellbeing of the local community and those who will visit the asset.
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 late 2021
In 2017, Construction Week magazine awarded Mall of Oman Commercial Project of the Year.
