Construction consultancy Jacobs Mace has been named Expo 2020 Dubai’s 'Official Programme Delivery Management Provider'.
Since its appointment as Project Management Consultant in January 2015, the syndicate has been part of the team responsible for managing the design and construction of the Expo 2020 Dubai site.
Commenting on the announcement, Ahmed Al Khatib, Chief Development and Delivery Officer, Expo 2020 Dubai, said, "Jacobs Mace has proven to be a solid partner, playing an essential role in ensuring that construction is on track.
