Steel structure manufacturer says work on Kuwait, Russia, Indonesia and Uzbekistan pavilions are on track for delivery
Emirates Building Systems (EBS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments and a leading manufacturer of steel structures, has said that it is nearing the completion of four Expo 2020 pavilion projects worth in excess of $6.2 million.
In a statement, the company said that work is steadily progressing with the steel structure and fabrication works on the Kuwait, Russia, Indonesia, and Uzbekistani pavilions. In order to complete the engineering, fabrication, and erection works for the pavilions, EBS pointed out that it has supplied more than 2,400 metric tonnes (MT) of steel, as well as the decking and accessories for the pavilions.
Joseph Chidiac, General Manager of Emirates Building Systems, said: “Close on heels to one of the most awaited events – the Expo 2020, EBS is excited to be extending our services and expertise to the participating countries. Each pavilion is symbolic and represents a nation and a lot of planning has been integrated into the design elements.
“Providing a solid structural framework to these pavilions, is crucial in determining well-laid external facades along with enhancing the overall look and feel of the project. Integrating our technical expertise, implementing the past project experience, and optimising product capability, the Expo 2020 pavilions add up to the list of complex and prestigious projects for EBS,” he adds.
The Kuwait and Russia pavilions are estimated at more than 6,500sqm each, while the Indonesia and Uzbekistan pavilions are spread across 3,200sqm and 2,300sqm, respectively. More than 18,500sqm of pavilion space is being constructed with EBS products.
The works are being completed and handed over for most of the pavilions, EBS states, pointing out that only minor remaining works are left to be completed – these are progressing steadily, and the structural works are on track to be completed on time, it concludes.
