Atkins designs Oman's new 'Medical City'

Atkins, the UK-based design and engineering consulting firm, has completed the masterplan for a major new world-class healthcare facility in Oman, The Medical City (TMC).

TMC is the largest private healthcare infrastructure development in the country and is fronted by Apex Medical Group, with the complex to occupy an 800,000sq m (8.6 million sq ft) site by the Arabian Sea.

Facilities will include a 375-bedroom hotel and a spa, although further specifications are yet to be confirmed. It is expected, however, the hotel will incorporate swimming pools and a gym as part of its offer.

The spa will be open to the public, in addition to its use for medical purposes, and the hotel is to be positioned at the "high end" of the market.

TMC will be centred around a hospital, while other healthcare facilities will include training and education areas for medical staff; a wellbeing centre; and residential accommodation.

Atkins design director Ray Phillips said: "This is an important and exciting project for the region, which will create world-class medical facilities in an environment that supports and promotes rehabilitation and healthy living.

"Our design incorporates core principles of carbon reduction, waste reduction and use of local and sustainable materials, so as to create a truly contemporary and sustainable development."
