Oman National Botanic Reserve

Atkins developed a masterplan for a botanic reserve on a 400ha site in the north of Oman, to showcase the Middle East’s 1,200 species of native plant, 76 of which are found only in Oman.

The aim of the project was to create a principal habitat-based botanic garden telling the story of Oman’s diverse flora and its significance for people and wildlife. It would establish and maintain a documented living collection of Omani plants reflecting the different regions and natural habitats and provide a resource for conservation and education.

Our work encompassed detailed site analyses, economic assessment, architectural and landscape design and environmental impact assessment.

The project forms part of Oman’s national strategy to develop its tourism industry using the country’s diverse cultural and natural assets.
