UK Pavilion Expo 2017 Astana

Inspired by the Astana 2017 Expo theme of ‘Future Energy’, Asif Khan’s UK Pavilion explores the origins of energy. Beginning with the birth of the universe, taking visitors on the journey of energy from the sun through to the earth’s landscape, its climate, human civilisation and UK innovation. The UK pavilion is a multi-sensory experience involving film, technology, sound and computer generated animation.

Alchemy was a central part of the success of this British Government project. Your input was critical in shaping the procurement strategy, ensuring value for money and quality control and ensuring that the pavilion was delivered on time and against tight constraints. The latter included often distinctly challenging circumstances. Alchemy’s skills in project management were key to the successful outcome.
