Atkins has been awarded a $600m contract to supervise infrastructure works for a major residential and leisure development in Muscat, Oman.

The scheme, by developer Saraya Bandar Jissah, will comprise nearly 400 homes and two five-star hotels on a two million sq metre site bordered by the Hajar mountain range and the Gulf of Oman.

The hotels are due to open in 2017.
