Located near the Muscat International Airport, the new Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) is set in an area called Madinat Al Irfan Urban Development, or the “city of gratitude”. OCEC is a key feature of the city’s first phase of the Irfan Development.
The development is part of the government strategy to boost its tourism sector.
The OCEC development comprises enabling and earth works, site-wide infrastructure, five exhibition halls with over 20,000 square meters of column-free exhibition space, 33 associated meeting rooms and hospitality suites, multi-level car parking, an energy center, a 3200-seat auditorium, a 450-seat theatre, 2 ballrooms with capacities of 1200 and 540 guests, 20 additional meeting and conference rooms, and two 300-key hotels (a 5-star Marriott and a 4-star Crowne Plaza).
Further phases to the Irfan Development are in the early stages of masterplanning.
Our team is providing cost consultancy services for the entire initial development stage. The project has been keeping sustainability a priority by reusing the excavated material as a fill material, helping to meet LEED requirements.
