This follows a master plan design competition announced in June, which attracted several global project management firms.
The Burj 2020 District will be home to the world’s tallest commercial tower, Burj 2020, which is being developed in honour of Dubai’s successful bid to host the World Expo 2020. The ground breaking for the Burj 2020 District is planned for next year.
“By appointing experienced project managers such as Turner, we are laying strong foundations for delivering the Burj 2020 District, which will further drive sustainable growth for Dubai,” said Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman of DMCC.
“Turner has a strong track record in managing and delivering large complex projects, while at the same time embracing innovative ideas and new technologies.” Turner comes with a wealth of experience having delivered the three tallest towers in the world, including the Burj Khalifa.
“Opportunities to work on world-class developments of this scale do not present themselves often and we are honoured to be a part of DMCC’s Burj 2020 District project,” said Ali Odeh, Chairman and CEO of Turner International Middle East.
“We are committed and ready to take the project to the next level by offering our project management services to the development of what will no doubt be a world-class commercial district of the future.”
Burj 2020 is just one of the multi-billion infrastructures for the World Expo.
