Work is progressing on the Expo 2020 Dubai’s Luxembourg Pavilion, which is located within the Opportunity District of the 4.38km2 Expo 2020 Dubai site, authorities recently revealed in a site progress timelapse video.
The timelapse video traces the progress from October 2019 until September 2020.
Luxembourg, which was the first country to sign the participation contract with the Expo 2020 organisers, reported more than halfway progress in its construction by February 2020. It was also the first among all participating pavilions to get its building permit.
Once complete, it will be a 50m-wide, 38m-long, and 21m-high structure, with a gross constructed area of approximately 2,100m2 on a 3,500m2 site.
The pavilion has been designed by Luxembourg-headquartered METAFORM Architects, while Switzerland-based NUSSLI Adunic is the general contractor for the pavilion.
Early this year, Construction Week spoke with the Commissioner-General of the Luxembourg Pavilion, Maggy Nagel, about the postponement of the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Dubai’s Al Ahmadiah Contracting & Trading are the local contractors associated with the construction of the pavilion, and the UAE-based WME – which is a consultancy providing engineering services for the built environment – are the consultants for the pavilion.
The construction of the $32m pavilion is being primarily funded by the Luxembourg Pavilion’s partners and sponsors. Some of these include POST Luxembourg; communications satellite owner and operator SES SA; and the Chamber of Commerce.
Other sponsors include Arcelor Mittal; Cargolux; RAK Ceramics; and Guardian Glass.
