Initial studies were carried out in order to determine the nature of projects and their suitable components economically, developmentally, socially, and in terms of planning. The study also includes traffic and soil examination.
The building design of the project components of the three sites will be modern and innovative according to the standards of environment-friendly buildings (green buildings), and energy saving buildings, due to the use of solar panels and environment-friendly building materials. It is hoped to form a reference model for new buildings to be established in the Governorate of Muscat in particular and the Sultanate in general.
