Transforming construction
by creating new opportunities


Acting Responsibly

As a leading Omani provider of construction services that has been operating in the Sultanate since 1981, Douglas OHI is dedicated to the long-term sustainable development of the industry.

With this in mind, wherever we operate, we’re committed to employing local people, working with local SME’s and developing local capabilities in order to deliver substainable commercial benefits for the country. We place a strong emphasis on growing the local economy, and believe it is our responsibility to invest in the communities and develop business that brings value to Oman through:

  • Support and development of SME’s.
  • Omanisation – training and development of national talent and capability.
  • Corporate social responsibility – we believe that being a responsible business towards all our stakeholders and society is essential towards national success.
  • Research and development – we are always looking at how we can innovate to create value for our stakeholders, the industry and the Sultanate.

Responsibility

At Douglas OHI we believe that it’s crucial that we are responsible about the effect we have on the local community and provide them with the support they need for a better future. We’ve been supporting the people of Oman to lead independent and active lives for nearly 4 decades now.
