Project focus: Construction of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Village
Some of the challenges faced by Robert Bird Group and The Design Team during the design and construction of the Olympic and Paralympic Village are summarised. The Olympic and Paralympic Village consists of 2818 apartments in 11 plots and were built to accommodate over 17 000 athletes as part of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. After the Games the plots will be converted into a residential community, which will contribute to the overall regeneration of the Stratford area of London.
