International multidisciplinary practice AECOM has been named as project manager, cost manager, and health and safety advisor for the UK Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo. The architect for the project is yet to be decided with eight shortlisted entries due to be reduced to one final winner later in May.
AECOM’s Martyn Evans, Director, Project Management, said: “We look forward to working with the winning design team and UKTI to deliver this project. The Milan Expo will allow us to demonstrate the creativity, expertise and delivery of our UK team. We look forward to lending our expertise to this dynamic project.”
The pavilion will be designed to address the Expo theme of Feeding the Planet; Energy for Life, with the physical building, experiential content, events and digital channels showing British innovations across the food supply chain.
