Al Futtaim Carillion, a Dubai-based company, will be the main contractor for the key development of the three Theme Districts at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The contract announced today is worth Dh2.2 billion and is the first of Dh11 billion worth of construction contracts that Expo 2020 Dubai plans to award in 2017.
Expo’s three Theme Districts will be named Opportunity, Mobility and Sustainability after its three sub-themes and the design will reflect traditional Dubai architecture.
When Expo 2020 Dubai opens on 20 October 2020, the Theme Districts will be home to 136 pavilions for many of the participating countries, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and commercial partners at Expo, and will host cutting-edge exhibits and experiences for Expo’s many millions of visitors to enjoy.
In total, the Theme Districts and the buildings within them will have a floor area of 222,000 square meters.
Ahmed Al Khatib, Vice President – Real Estate at Expo 2020 Dubai said that the award marked an exciting step in the growth of Dubai, both for the six months of the event itself and beyond as the Districts and full Expo site become an integral part of Dubai South’s vibrant and varied new development.
