Further contracts for subsequent packages, including auditorium and banquet halls, a 5-star hotel, a 4-star hotel , the business district and hotel apartments are expected to come to market between now and the end of 2014.
Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: "Carillion Alawi delivered the marine works for the Asian Beach Games Project for Omran and we look forward to working in partnership with Omran again to deliver this phase of Oman's state-of-the-art Convention & Exhibition Centre."
The contract had been classified as a probable order in Carillion's interim management statement on 1 May.
