Jacobs Mace Supports Expo 2020 Dubai Pavilion Premiere
Expo 2020 Dubai Pavilions Premiere showcased Terra, The Sustainability Pavilion, offering an immersive journey through the wonders of the natural world. Jacobs Mace joint venture has supported Expo 2020 Dubai in inviting the UAE community to be among the first to explore Terra – The Sustainability Pavilion and its surrounding public spaces from January 22 to April 10, 2021. The special preview of one of Expo 2020’s signature experiences offered visitors an immersive journey through the wonders of the natural world, including an interactive walk through the roots of the forest and a dive into ocean depths. Uncovering the hidden harmful impacts of our environmental choices, the emotive experience is designed to encourage visitors of all ages to consider how their behavior impacts the environment, empowering them to become agents of change.
In role as Official Programme Delivery Management Provider to Expo 2020 Dubai, Jacobs Mace has monitored construction of the Thematic Pavilions and interfacing projects, plus managed overall delivery of the site’s infrastructure and public realm spaces.
Terra is designed to be net zero energy during legacy operations and visitors will get a glimpse of how this is achieved during Expo. To achieve this ambitious target, the design incorporates passive design measures to maximize the generation of renewable energy through 4,912 solar panels integrated into the entire building canopy, and energy trees incorporated into its landscape.
