The UK firm has been selected to provide detailed designs for two development projects in the Middle East.

The first is for maintenance and cargo facilities at Muscat Airport and the second is a cargo facility at Salalah Airport, Oman.

Together the developments consist of circa 150,000 sqm of facilities with the maintenance hangar at Muscat sized to accommodate an A380 and two Code C aircrafts simultaneously.
