About the Division
The Civil Construction Division was established as part of the Al Tasnim Group in 1976. From a relatively small start, executing concrete & block work subcontracts for some of the major international contractors involved in the early development of Oman’s housing & infrastructure, the division has grown greatly to become the major contractor it is today. The division is now one of the premier contractors in Oman & carries out a wide range of building projects from single villas to all aspects of major commercial & residential developments. Its capability to deliver civil & building works is supported by the group’s other specialist divisions.
During the journey from a subcontractor in 1976 to now being one of the largest Omani construction entities, the Civil Construction Division has been involved in many iconic buildings across the capital of Muscat as well as other iconic cities & has worked for many prestigious clients.
A key strength of this division is the ability to align itself with client requirements which leads to an in-depth understanding of client needs & expectations. This collaborative approach has often allowed cost savings to be made for the client & resulted in further contracts.
