Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL) – a financial and professional services firm specialising in real estate and operating in 1,000 locations across 70 countries – has been mandated to carry out a site analysis and legacy masterplan review. As part of this feasibility study, Jones Lang LaSalle will develop a long-term land use plan, providing a sustainable development strategy for both the Dubai Trade Centre-Jebel Ali site and surrounding areas.
Mace, a consultancy and construction company with a presence in 69 countries around the world, has also been engaged by the Expo 2020 team to assist with cost management and planning, working closely alongside the bid masterplan architects to develop the overall scope of this important project. This £1 billion firm has carried out a wide range of high-profile projects, including serving as a delivery partner for the infrastructure for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, as part of the CLM consortium. Mace was also responsible for the construction of the award winning UK Pavillion, officially known as the Seed Cathedral, at the Shanghai Expo 2010, winner of the Expo’s top pavilion award.
