Commenting on the award, Carillion Chief Executive, Richard Howson, said: "We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this package of the prestigious Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre Project. I believe this award reflects Carillion Alawi's outstanding reputation for delivering high-quality projects.
