(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Saraya Bandar Jissah, the company developing Oman's newest Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC), recently announced that DSA Architects ­International - Middle East, an ­internationally recognised architectural practice focused on high quality design and cons­truction documentation delivery, has been awarded the site construction supervision consultancy services contract for its first two 5-star beach-front hotels in Bandar Jissah.

DSA Architects International will be responsible for construction supervision consultancy services for the two 5-star hotels, totalling 318 rooms, and will be supported by Atkins - Oman for engineering. The two projects are located in Bandar Jissah, 11km southeast of Muscat and 40km from the Muscat International Airport.

Saraya Bandar Jissah awarded DSA Architects International the contract after a detailed evaluation and selection process, which covered a number of major international competitors in the consultancy field. According to Saraya Bandar Jissah, DSA Architects International was ultimately selected because of its reputation for high-quality work and timely delivery, a release said Sunday.

In announcing the agreement, Sheikh Hamood bin Sultan al Hosni, CEO of Saraya Bandar Jissah noted, ''Awarding this prestigious and unique project to DSA Architects International was done after careful consideration and evaluation of the project's need for a consultant committed to the successful and timely delivery of the contract.''

''Considering the significance of the two hotels and the scale of work required, we found DSA Architects International to be an ideal partner. We strongly ­believe it has the experience and capability to undertake the project, from start to finish, and deliver quality results within the allocated time frame,'' Hosni added.

The two 5-star beach-front hotels, each offering its own unique identity, will be operated by the Jumeirah Group, the internationally-renowned luxury hotels and resorts operator. The first hotel is set to be a boutique 5-star hotel, occupying 61,000 sq m and comprising 112 rooms. Once completed, it will offer an array of world-class facilities and services that include an executive lounge, gym, business centre, lobby lounge, a specialty restaurant, prayer rooms, as well as offices and other facilities.

The second hotel, the larger of the two, will occupy a plot area of 74,000 sq m and will comprise a total of 206 rooms, of which 185 will be housed in the main hotel complex, while the remaining 21 will be indi­vidual villas. The project will also include a beach-front ball­room for weddings and events, international cuisine restaurants and sports activities, including a dive centre.

On being awarded the contract, Steve Kelshaw, managing director of DSA Architects International said, ''We are delighted to be associated with Saraya Bandar Jissah, the newest luxury address in Oman, along with world renowned hotel operator Jumeirah. we are proud to have been selected as a major stakeholder in the delivery of this world-class develop
