Olympic park contract up for grabs

The tender race for co-main contractors to work alongside Bam Nuttall creating the Olympic Park will start by the end of this year.

Nuttall is managing the delivery of the northern section of the 2012 site to transform it into an urban parkland.

A similar role for the southern section will be advertised later this year with both main contractors set to use the same supply chain of subcontractors.

Nuttall is currently assembling a team of landscaping and groundwork specialists which will be used across both sections of the site when work starts this spring.

Creation of the 100 hectare park moved a step closer this week when designs were approved by the Olympic Delivery Authority Planning Committee.ADVERTISEMENT

Visitors to the park during the Games will enjoy broad sweeping lawns and footpaths leading down to riverbanks, ample seating and public spaces throughout the park with live screens showing the sporting action.

In legacy the Olympic Park will be a new green space for people and wildlife and will host the London 2012 legacy sports facilities.

ODA Project Sponsor for Parklands and Public Realm John Hopkins said: “This gives the green light to a great new park that will be both a fantastic backdrop for the Games and the heart of the regeneration of east London. We have almost finished cleaning the Olympic Park site, much of it contaminated through decades of industrial use, and this spring we will start the process of transforming the area into a new green space for people and wildlife.”
