Case study - Olympic Delivery Authority

BNFL Award: 2012

London’s successful bid for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games created the need for a major regeneration and construction programme to provide the venues and infrastructure needed to stage the Games. The construction programme was delivered by the Olympic Delivery Authority who won the APM Project Management Awards' Programme of the Year in 2012. 

The programme of construction was extensive, technically and politically challenging, and up against a fixed deadline of the Opening Ceremony of the Games in July 2012.

Turning the vision of the Olympic bid into the reality of roads, bridges and stadia was the job of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), a new publicly funded body established by an Act of Parliament in April 2006.
