Project Specification

Expo Milano 2015 is the Universal Exhibition that Milan hosts in 2015. For over 6 months Milan becomes a global showcase where over 140 countries are participating and welcomes over 20 million visitors to its 1.1 million square meter of exhibition area. This significant project puts Milan in the light of the international scene.

A variety of Platipus underground Rootball Fixing Systems were chosen to secure the numerous green spaces between the pavilions inside the Expo. Platipus systems were able to provide a clean finish to this prestigious project and also ensured the trees were safely anchored in this large public space. Platipus worked closely with the Landscape Contractor in providing unlimited technical support and free on-site training to its landscape teams.
