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.

<h4>London 2012 Olympic Games – Basketball Arena shell</h4>

London 2012 Olympic Games – Basketball Arena shell

Civil and structural engineers Fenton Holloway worked with Barr Construction Ltd to prepare both compliant and alternative design and build submissions for the building shell element of the 12 000-seat temporary demountable Basketball Arena. The compliant tender submission was based on the scheme design prepared by the Olympic Delivery Authority's (ODA's) appointed design team. The alternative bid retained the essence of the architectural concept but concentrated on value-engineered solutions that integrated the frame, fabric and ancillary elements to greater effect.
