Expo 2020 Contracts for Laing O'Rourke

Expo 2020 Dubai has awarded Laing O’Rourke two major construction contracts worth a combined AED670 million (USD182.44 million.)

The UK-headquartered contractor will build Expo 2020’s Leadership and Media Pavilions, and the event’s Hammerhead access road and also be responsible for carrying out associated mechanical, electrical and plumbing works.

The Leadership Pavilion will accommodate UAE leadership during the Expo and, after the event both pavilions will be transformed into hotels as part of he District 2020 legacy development project. Both are anticipated to achieve four-star ratings.

So named because of its distinctive shape, the Hammerhead road encompasses ramped access for a subterranean truck tunnel running underneath Al Wasl Plaza.

Expo 2020-related construction is expected to reach its peak towards the end of this year and early 2019.
