BUSINESS CHALLENGE

The theme of Shanghai Expo 2010 was "Better City, Better Life", representing the common wish of all humankind for a better quality of life in future urban environments. In line with this theme, each country, region or city pavilion was designed by a renowned foreign architect and involved showcasing cutting-edge construction technologies and specifications while complying with Chinese construction law.

 

Ensuring delivery for the opening date under a very tight schedule was a real challenge. This required a vast scope of professional project management and quality control abilities and resources to ensure each project was a success.

SOLUTION

Bureau Veritas won contracts on 12 pavilions in two major areas. In the area of project management it brought its experience and technical guidance to 7 pavilion projects, including those for France, Italy, Sweden, the Rhône-Alpes region (France) Monaco, Paris, Madrid.

Because each pavilion was designed by a foreign architect according to the client's latest technological specifications in terms of the environment and sustainability, it was a significant challenge achieving conformity with the Chinese and local Shanghai building codes. In the domain of inspection services, Bureau Veritas teams carried out countless inspections in the areas of workplace health and safety, indoor air quality, fire safety and electrical systems for the pavilions of Spain, UK, Lille Europe (France) and International Organizations pavilions.

BENEFITS

Bureau Veritas Building and Facilities Department in China had to interface with hundreds of players, including clients, international architects, national and international suppliers, national and international contractors, design institutes, Chinese authorities and event organizers. The complexity of the projects and simultaneous construction and delivery of 11 separate pavilions was an enormous challenge.

 

Bureau Veritas possessed the competencies, experience, resources and organization required to do a quality job, helping to ensure that 11 pavilions opened successfully, safely and on time. Bureau Veritas was also selected for services for dismantling the pavillon of Netherlands after the
Expo was finished.
