London 2012 Athletes Village

The 2012 Olympic Games provided and unprecedented opportunity for the development of London’s East End. One of the largest regeneration projects in Europe, the construction of the London Athletes Village by Lend Lease aimed to be one of the most sustainable schemes in Europe. With tight and immovable deadlines the landscape was the last elements to be completed and had to be delivered quickly and efficiently. Our approach was to employ modular systems and to construct a large proportion of the landscape components off site to save time and money. By June 2011 our two podium deck landscape schemes for the Athletes Village were completed, a full six months ahead of schedule.

Permeable paving systems from Sudstech helped to reduce the runoff from hard surfaces and store rainwater at podium level.
