And he is expecting big things this year, with this figure predicted to almost double – projected revenue for the financial year to December 2018 is $5.67m (AED20.83m), according to Al Salmy.

During the next 12 months, Hoehler + alSalmy will be involved with projects in the sultanate including the refurbishment of the Crowne Plaza Muscat, and design, supervision, and interior design at Al Muzn Corp Hotel in Al Hail. In addition, the consultancy is carrying out work on a lab building, student accommodation, and the Finnish School at the German University of Technology in Oman.
