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.
