Netherlands pavilion wins Sustainable Construction Project of the Year Award

We are extremely honoured to have won the ‘Sustainable Construction Project of the Year Award’, as part of the renowned Big 5 Impact Awards in Dubai.

It is amazing to have the sustainable and circular concept behind The Netherlands pavilion for Expo 2020 Dubai recognized by the global construction industry.

The pavilion is designed as a temporary, circular climate system in which water is harvested from the air, energy is collected from the sun and edible plants and oyster mushrooms are grown. Locally rented sheet piles and pipes are used as main construction materials and its interior is finished with bio-based and reusable materials. By returning or reusing all materials after Expo 2020 Dubai ends, the pavilion’s ecological footprint is kept minimal.

The Netherlands Pavilion was brought to life in close collaboration with our consortiumpartners Expomobilia, Witteveen & Bos and Kossmanndejong.
