Olympic Park 'big build' nears completion

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has announced it is coming to the end of its procurement after awarding more than 1,500 direct contracts worth over £6bn, 98 per cent of which have gone to UK-based companies.

These direct contracts have resulted in tens of thousands of supply chain contracts spread across the UK.

As examples, the ODA's contract for the construction of the Olympic Stadium resulted in work for 240 UK companies plus many more sub-contractors.

This included the turf which was grown in Scunthorpe, seats from Luton, steel from Bolton, and concrete terracing units from Taunton.

More than 40 UK companies, plus many more sub-contractors, won work on the Velodrome, including the timber for the track from Sheffield, seating structures from Barnsley and the internal cladding from Cambridge.

ODA Chairman John Armitt said: "The Olympic Park project is on schedule and budget and we have successfully hit all of our milestones over the last five years.

"This is thanks to the skill and professionalism of thousands of British businesses who have won contracts and shown the rest of the world what UK plc can achieve.

"The Olympic Park is a great showcase for UK industry and many companies have used it to go on and win work on other projects across the world.

"When we welcome the world to London next summer, tens of thousands of people from right across the UK will know that they played a part in building the stage for the greatest show on earth."

The London 2012 Organising Committee (LOCOG) is expected to award more than £700m worth of contracts by 2012.

Opportunities are advertised via the CompeteFor portal and forthcoming opportunities include front of house lighting for venues, fire alarms and PA systems.
