Justice Ministry still to award similar contract for Nizwa

Oman’s Ministry of Justice has awarded an OR9.8m ($25.5m) contract to the local/UK Carillion Alawi to build court premises at Rustaq in the north east of Oman.

Carillion was awarded the contract to build the regional Preliminary & Appeal Court on the 1 June, says a source working on the project. The contract covers the construction of a 4-storey courthouse and associated facilities.

Carillion beat competition from four other groups to win the contract. The other groups that submitted bids were the local Galfar Engineering & Contracting group, the local/UK Douglas OHI group, the local Abu Hatim Company and Indian firm Larsen & Toubro.

The same five contractors also submitted bids on 29 March to build new court premises at Nizwa.

The Galfar Engineering & Contracting group submitted the lowest bid for the contract to build the court in Nizwa with a price of OR10m. This was 2 per cent better than the second lowest bid of OR10.2m submitted by the local/UK Douglas OHI group (MEED 31:3:10).
