CUD Alumni Excellence

by Eddie Rayner

Rahul Binyani, a graduate of Bachelor of Architecture from Canadian University Dubai (CUD), secured a position at Expo 2020 in the design and build of visitor facilities.

After a 9-month training programme, he progressed to become Assistant Manager of Overlay – the team responsible for the design and build of all the temporary facilities that will be required by visitors at the event.

“I’ve come to understand that architecture has a lot to do with salesmanship and project management,” Rahul says. “What we’re trying to do is build a legacy with facilities that can adapt for any event. The Expo site is 65 football fields large. So while the overlay facilities will be temporary, we are working towards the legacy project, District 2020, which will establish the site as an important business, leisure, and lifestyle destination of the future.”

Rahul will be pursuing his Masters in Construction Management Project at Heriot-Watt University in Dubai.
