Pioneering Work in the Gulf States

The long and successful history of Taylor Woodrow in the Gulf States began in the 1960s in Oman, where the company built some of the first modern infrastructure including hospitals, television studios and in the case of Medinat Qaboos, near Muscat, a completely new township.

In Dubai, Taylor Woodrow worked on many notable projects including Port Rashid, a 270,000 square metre project including dry docks, harbour works and ship repair shops, which was one of the largest civil engineering projects in the world. The port was officially opened by the Queen of England during a tour of the Middle East.

The company has also undertaken a wide range of projects in Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.
