Construction 'well advanced' at Expo 2020 Dubai site

All major design elements of the site for Expo 2020 Dubai have been completed, with construction “well advanced” on three theme districts that form the core of the site, according to an update from organisers.

In a statement, Expo 2020 Dubai said that the foundations of the three districts are complete, with buildings currently being built.

To date, over 14.5 million work hours have been completed at the site, with 6,100 cubic meters of concrete laid each week. Additionally, a total of 85 kilometres of pipe have already been laid for site infrastructure works.

UAE-based companies have taken a lead role in the construction effort, including Al-Futtaim Carillion, Khansaheb, Besix, Arabtec, Tristar Engineering and Al Naboodah Construction.

The three theme districts, which are being developed by Al Futtaim Carillion, are “progressing well”, the statement noted. External cladding work has begun and is slated for completion by the end of 2018. More
