Mati Consult shines at Expo 2020 with 'timber pavilions', solar trees

DUBAI, October 27, 2021

Mati Consult, a multi-award-winning service-oriented firm co-founded by female entrepreneur Elisa Ruggeri, played a significant role in the construction works carried out on the pavilions and external structures at Expo 2020 Dubai.
The Dubai-headquartered company provided sustainable construction, consulting services, and management covering a multitude of pavilions, as well as the public area automated shading and precision mechanics for the Expo 2020 Solar Trees in addition to delivering world-class architectural and sustainable structures.
Established in Dubai in 2014, MATI Consult offers project and business consultancies, including securing business and projects and a wide range of solutions to a multitude of international and local businesses to develop a solid base and presence in the Middle East. 
For this mega event, MATI had sourced and supplied engineered mass timber structures from Europe, in collaboration with local and international contractors, and applied them to the structures of the 12 country pavilions including UK, Oman, Azerbaijan, Belgium and others. 
In parallel, MATI also provided water features, landscaping and vertical farms and gardens to several other pavilions. 
MATI Consult's delivered order book for 2021 comprises 25 different projects in the region, including the 12 pavilions, and has generated a business volume exceeding €40 million ($46.5 million) this year alone.
"We are extremely proud of what MATI has achieved this year. Winning the trust of 12 Expo 2020 pavilions was a significant milestone for us, and the process was nothing short of smart work and sleepless nights," remarked Ruggeri, who is also the company's CEO.
MATI’s achievements at Expo 2020 are the result of years of efforts in bringing European suppliers to a region they had never set foot in, and securing business for them, amongst other lucrative services, such the expertise of sustainable engineered mass timber construction in the Middle East. 
In addition, thanks to a Mena partnership with a leading Italian bespoke steel manufacturer, MATI was awarded work on the world’s largest public area automated shading at Expo 2020, as well as the precision mechanical positioning of the solar trees, explained Ruggeri. 
Since its inception, MATI has consulted for and on behalf of an array of SMEs including Fortune100 companies and governments engaged in building and connecting the GCC with the rail network deployments, bringing onboard various world-renowned companies and authorities in the rail industry and achieving considerable success for both clients and partners, said the proud female entrepreneur.
