Emirates Building Systems (EBS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Dubai Investments and a leading manufacturer of steel structures, is nearing the completion of four Expo 2020 pavilions worth in excess of Dh23 million ($6.2 million).
The company is steadily progressing with the steel structure and fabrication works of the Kuwait, Russia, Indonesia and Uzbekistan pavilions.
To complete the engineering, fabrication and erection works of the pavilions, EBS has supplied more than 2,400 metric tonnes (MT) of steel. The decking and accessories for the pavilions are also being supplied by EBS.
The Kuwait and the Russia pavilions are estimated at more than 6,500 sq m each. The Indonesia pavilion, on the other hand, is spread across 3,200 sq m while the Uzbekistan pavilion covers an area of 2,300 sq m. More than 18,500 sq m of pavilion space is being constructed with the EBS products. The works are being completed and being handed over for most of the pavilions, with the minor remaining works currently progressing steadily and on track to complete the structural works on time.
Joseph Chidiac, General Manager of EBS, said: “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.”
