Project Overview

The Oman Aquarium is located within the Palm Mall in Oman’s capital city, Muscat. The public aquarium spans three floors with 5,600 sqm of visitor space. Advanced Aquarium Technologies were contracted for the full design and construction works for this project. The design work included review of concept, schematic design and complete design development including the interior architecture. Due to the short time frame AAT concurrently manufactured FRP exhibit tanks, fully complete with rockwork and theming. AAT were also responsible for major life support and equipment as well as acrylic thermoforming and bonding.
