Australian consultancy helps deliver Expo 2020 Dubai emergency services

One of the first contracts tendered for Expo 2020 Dubai was for the design and construction of five Emergency Services posts. Australia’s professional consultancy, GHD, won the contract and will now showcase its sustainable-design skills to a global audience.

When Expo 2020 Dubai began tendering for works on its 438-hectare site in late 2016, GHD spotted an opportunity to showcase its expertise on a global stage.

In late 2016, GHD tendered for the role of design and construction-supervision consultant on five Emergency Services posts. Designed for police, fire and ambulance services, the posts had to be built to global standards of energy efficiency and sustainability.

From early 2016 to July 2017, approximately 25 UAE-based staff and 20 employees in Australia and UK executed a range of advisory services. These included architectural design, the detailed design, energy design, geo-tech and lighting. GHD staff also supervised construction.

All five posts are on track to be completed on time, to the equivalent of a six-star Australian energy rating.
