International construction consultancy MPG has joined a highly experienced consortium of specialists to bid for major design projects.

MPG already has a track record of providing quantity surveying and other services for big design projects such as stadia, airports and rail stations worldwide. It now hopes to create more opportunities to work on similar large developments as part of the Design International consortium

The consortium – comprising AESG, iDeas-FG, Atelier One, Ian Banham, Dewan Architects and Engineers, Simon Taylor and SKR Lighting Design – has already submitted a high-scoring bid for the UK pavilion for Expo 2020, Dubai. It is now seeking similar high profile projects.

Michael Gallucci, managing director of MPG, said: “It has been thrilling to be involved in this bid, and I am looking forward to continuing to work alongside an excellent team of partners in the Design International consortium.”

Designed to celebrate British innovation, the consortium’s bid for Dubai, known as the Collaborative Orbit, was themed around knowledge transfer with a transparent fabric and a huge mesh of fibre optics representing the synapses of the brain. MPG provided QS services to the project from the outset through to the outline bid.

MPG, based in London with offices worldwide, also provides a range of other services to the property and construction sector including project management and mediation, and is particularly active in the UK and the Gulf region.
