Engineering the Heart of Expo2020
RBG, in collaboration with Cimolai Rimond Middle East, developed the Construction Methodology and Erection Sequence (CMES) for the Al Wasl Trellis, simulating the construction of the Trellis with a Digital Twin whilst also implementing predictive and live health monitoring of the strand jacking operation for the 900t ‘crown’ lifted in September 2019. RBG was awarded Consultant of the Year for its positive contribution to the centrepiece of Expo 2020.
The “Trellis”or shading structure is designed to relate to the Expo 2020 “logo” aesthetics. The dome is approximately 80m high and 150m in diameter and consists of unique structural steel tube welded hollow sections. Openings at the base will be designed to relate to key buildings and parcels around Al Wasl such as the UAE pavilion, Cultural Plaza, and the Arrivals Plaza.
Congratulations to all involved!
