“We enjoyed working with Smiemans/Edenparks. The construction was done in a professional and efficient way. After the EXPO Smiemans demolished the pavilion in a smooth way enabling us to sell the pavilion to a third party at a reasonable price.”

The World EXPO, the world famous exhibition which takes place every 5 year on a different location, was in 2015 in Milan, Italy. Edenparks, which forms part of Smiemans Projecten, had been given the honour of building the Dutch pavilion, not least because of its expertise in construction of such buildings for public use.

EXPO Milan took place from 1 May to 31 October 2015. The theme of the world fair will be “Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life”. No fewer than 140 countries were exhibiting innovations in the field of healthy, safe and sufficient nutrition. The exhibition was 1.1 million square metres in size and attracted more than 20 million visitors.

The organisers opted for a glass construction, thus providing a direct reference to the horticultural industry. The pavilion provided a space where the Dutch business community and nutrition-based organisations can hold presentations and meetings, as well as entertain guests.

The pavilion is a multifunctional building. Due to its fast completion time, affordability and the fact that it can be dismantled and rebuilt easily elsewhere, the construction is extremely durable.
