With the London 2012 Olympics fast approaching the success stories of outstanding projects associated with the Games will be coming to the fore. None more so than the remediating of the Olympic Park site in preparation for creating and staging the global sports event, a great example of how a learning legacy initiative can share and disseminate knowledge and best practice within the industry. The project impressively prepared and cleaned a vast and contaminated brownfield “mega site” in East London making it fit for the building of the Olympic and Paralympic Games’ infrastructure. Epitomising the importance of a learning legacy the Olympic Park remediation works will be positioned as a global best practice model at a conference showcasing the expertise of the industry.

The CL:AIRE Olympic Park Enabling Works conference, hosted by the UK’s respected independent body promoting the sustainable remediation of contaminated land and groundwater, will bring together for the first time the specialist companies that were involved in remediating the site in preparation for creating and staging the London 2012 Games. Focusing on the technical aspects of this immense project, the conference will celebrate the achievements and successes of hundreds of experts working behind the scenes. It will look at how the remediation strategy was planned and implemented within a very tight timeframe, and examine the future legacy of the site. The conference will take place at One Great George Street in London on 4th November 2010. For more information about this conference and for details on how to book please follow the link.
