Contract Name : Barr Al Jissah Resort Package 1
Client : Zubair Enterprises LLC
Location : Muscat

The Barr al Jissah Resort complex will be a new selfcontained resort complex situated some 12 km to the south east of Muscat on an undeveloped site adjacent to the sea, with a spectacular mountain setting.

The complex will form a key role in underpinning the Omani government's aim to increase attractions for premium market tourists to the country.

The total land area under development amounts to 230,000 square metres. All buildings are low rise (up to 5 storeys), and architecturally are in the local Arabian style.

At the start of the project, the site was only accessible by sea and all staff, labour, materials and equipment had to be transported by boat to a
purpose made jetty through the adjacent mountains.

The method of construction is technically undemanding, with short to medium span beam and slab reinforced concrete frames, infill blockwork and
rendered exteriors generally specified for the buildings. The complex will have very high standards of materials and finishes particularly within the
Castle Hotel.

The total built areas for the complex is approximately 82,000 square metres. We have received the contractor of the year award from Construction News
Excellence Magazine for our performance on the Barr Al Jissah Resort.
