Contract let for Calatrava-designed UAE Expo pavillion

Arabtec Construction has won the main contract to build the UAE’s national pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.

It beat three local and international companies in the final round, with nine companies bidding initially.

Santiago Calatrava’s design had been chosen in May last year (link opens in new tab).

Calatrava's winning design draws inspiration from a falcon in flight. The UAE pavilion is intended to be a key landmark at the Expo 2020 Dubai, with its design seen as reflecting the heritage of the UAE, its achievements in various sectors as well as national values of openness, communication and tolerance.

The UAE Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai is located opposite Al Wasl Plaza in the centre of the 4.38km2 exhibition area. The pavilion is set on an area of 15,000m2 with a total built-up area of 19,200m2.

Construction will begin this month with completion scheduled for the end of 2019.
