UK Pavilion for Milan Expo 2015
We are proud to announce that we have been appointed as the main contractor to deliver the UK pavilion at the Milan Expo in 2015.
This appointment acknowledges the strength and diversity of our capabilities. Having established a partnership with specialist management consultants RISE, we will be able to bring our blend of problem solving and innovation to bear on this extraordinary project. Our experience in delivering highly creative structures has grown rapidly over the last decade and includes the successful delivery of each year’s Serpentine Gallery pavilion since 2009 – last year working closely with RISE.
Mark Johnson, Managing Director commented “We’re delighted to have been selected to construct the UK Pavilion at the Milan Expo. This is a significant project for us and reflects our increasingly strong relationship with architects, designers and artists across many disciplines. It’s a strong validation of our collaborative approach and our ability to deliver creative construction projects successfully.”
Designed by Wolfgang Buttress, the 2015 pavilion embraces the Expo theme of ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’ and will explore how creativity, science and technology combine to tackle these issues. The focal point will be a delicate, orb-like structure called The Hive, which will pulsate and buzz with the sounds of a real bee colony.
