Facilities Management & Maintenance
Oman’s facility management industry has witnessed significant growth due to various factors. Construction activities, thriving real estate markets, a focus on Green Buildings in line with Vision 2030, and tourism growth should increase demand for FM services within Oman. Furthermore, technological advances and greater awareness about their benefits among Omanis should create significant opportunities for service providers operating within this space.
BEC possesses the expertise to execute complex multi-disciplinary projects encompassing civil, mechanical, electrical, and instrumentation works associated with oil & gas, power & industrial projects in both Oman and UAE to exacting standards. Furthermore, this company trades electrical products like power meters in Oman.
Oman’s FM market was previously dominated by soft services and is projected to experience further expansion during its forecast period, thanks to rising residential developments and commercial sectors. Oman’s 9th Five Year Development Plan and Vision 2020 have both stimulated retail sector expansion, which, in turn, increased demand for FM services; construction of hospitals, clinics, and healthcare facilities will boost complex FM services significantly as well.
