ROSSENDALE-based construction firm Driver Group has landed new contracts in the Middle East worth more than £2million.
The consultants, in St Crispin Way, Haslingden, will undertake two new projects in Oman. They come on the back of a six-month contract with Oman’s government to aid the development of Muscat International and Salalah airports in April.
Driver will work with the country’s Public Authority for Electricity and Water (PAEW) to provide consultancy and project management services to the department over the next five years. It has also been awarded a project management contract on the roadworks between Al Hadshah and Al Hamra, which will last for 21 months. The combined value of the contracts is around £2.2 million.
Dave Webster, CEO of Driver Group described the contracts as ‘reflecting the strength of our reputation and business, and are testament to management’s focus on our core strengths in this region’.
Driver currently employ 230 people in their Haslingden headquarters after purchasing rivals Trett last month.
