Expo 2020 Dubai is well under way, with approximately a year to go until all major construction needs to be finished in October 2019, but what has been built so far?
In this podcast episode, Oscar Rousseau and Jack Ball, deputy editor and senior reporter of Construction Week, review progress on the Expo megaproject as the clock continues to tick down to deadline day.
It comes after Ahmed Al Khatib, Expo 2020's vice president for real estate and delivery, said the Phase 2 infrastructure package would be completed by the end of the year.
Construction Week Viewpoint is a weekly podcast series examining the most important issues impacting the Middle East's construction sector. As the podcast's episodes span 15 minutes, they provide bite-sized facts and exclusive perspectives on the biggest business determinants for construction leaders – from dispute resolution and the decline of fatalities on site, to solar energy projects, and smart city concepts.
You can listen to a new podcast episode every Monday at noon to learn more about the biggest issues in the business. In previous episodes of the podcast, the CW team has looked at why Saudi Arabia is in a race to build more hospitals, and why preserving the UAE's architectural heritage is more important than ever before. The team has also examined the reasons behind the continued development of oil and gas megaprojects amid widespread energy diversification plans.
In addition to our weekly podcast series, a behind-the-scenes video of the podcast recording can be found on Construction Week's YouTube channel.
