KEO International Consultants has been appointed to provide design and construction supervision services for the Expo Village development. The residential community is being developed by the Dubai World Trade Centre, and when completed will host EXPO 2020 Dubai visitors and participants.
The design, engineering and project management firm was previously engaged to concept design the buildings and infrastructure of the Expo Village. KEO will also provide full design and construction supervision of phase one of the development. The development is expected to be delivered by the fourth quarter of 2019, and is expected to boast efficient design with high sustainability principles.
“We are very proud to be the Design Consultant of a legacy development such as the Expo Village, which will support the successful delivery of Expo 2020 Dubai – the first World Expo to be held in the region. The completion of the design phase and the supervision is only made successful through the dedicated efforts of our international team of experts and the effective collaboration with the Dubai World Trade Center (DWTC) as well as the various stakeholders involved. KEO’s vast experience in delivering mega projects in the region, coupled with our innovative approach, equip us to deliver to the highest standard and to always place the client at the heart of what we do,” said Donna Sultan, president and CEO of KEO.
This development is a key win for KEO, the firm says it is one of the vital developments for EXPO 2020, and will offer about 2,273 apartment units. The development will also feature retail and community facilities including a school, day care centre, and a health care centre.
“The Expo Village will be brought to life during EXPO 2020 Dubai, and KEO’s vision in designing this development goes beyond the mega event to support the client in their strategic vision to deliver a signature residential development of choice to the emirate,” concluded Sultan.
