Building Work for London 2012 Olympic Games Complete on Time
Building and Construction work for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games has been completed on time and within budget – chief executive of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), Dennis Hone, told Sky News.
Building the stage for the London 2012 Game has given people in the building industry across the UK unprecedented access to new jobs and career opportunities. Building work towards completion of the Olympic Park, in the heart of East London, has helped thousands of people in the building engineering sector to get employed and improve their current skills.
Mr Hone said: “We are in fine form ahead of the Games, having built the venues and main infrastructure on time and within budget.”
Even though building work has been officially completed and the venues handed over to organisers, there is still a lot post-building work to be done. All the sports equipment plus timing and scoring equipment as well as other temporary features are to be installed in the next month in the run up to the Olympics.
The building of a 100,000 sq ft of retail space for the Games including a 40,000 sq ft London 2012 mega store will be built before 16th July, the peak day for Olympic athlete arrival.
In addition to the existing facilities, another 11 areas sponsor showcase will be built, 362 toilet blocks, and 165 concession stands will be installed.
More than 1,000 picnic benches, installing ticket box offices, information booths and programme sale points, plus 4,000 waste bins will be installed in the next couple of months.
Heathrow Airport has announced today that it is planning to build a new terminal for the London Olympic Games. The newly built Olympic terminal will ease the high volume of extra passengers expecting to arrive for London 2012.
Building work at London Heathrow will create new jobs, transport networks and regenerate 6th runway in Heathrow Airport, which expects nearly 50% more passengers arriving on July 26, the day before the opening ceremony.
Do you welcome the new proposals for building a temporary Olympics terminal on Heathrow Airport?
