London 2012 Olympics Games
As an official partner APM shared the knowledge and lessons learned from one of the most successful British construction projects of our time - delivered on time and on budget by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA).
Along with APM, the ODA worked closely with contractors, industry partners, government bodies and academia to capture the lessons learned and document best practice examples and innovations for the benefit of the profession and to raise the bar within the construction sector.
To aid in sharing best practice APM shared the lessons learned from the construction of the London 2012 Olympic Games through a series of events in 2012:
Lessons learned on the construction of the Olympic Park, January 2012. This first event described the overall task of the ODA; the role of the Delivery Partner CLM; the principal challenges faced to deliver the venues and infrastructure; and the results that have been achieved.
Context, governance and setting up the programme, February 2012. The second of APMs learning legacy events focussed on establishing the programme governance, the appointment of CLM as the delivery partner and the procurement challenge.
Delivering the Olympic Park, March 2012. This event focused on how to contract for and manage a programme of the size and complexity of the Olympic Park.
Providing assurance to the London 2012 ODA construction programme, April 2012. This event discussed the programme assurance framework; how risk was identified and managed; how progress was monitored and reported; and how quality assurance was provided across the programme.
Delivering the Olympics legacy through the construction programme, May 2012. This final learning legacy event covered how the ODA defined its priority themes across the programme, and focused on sustainability to demonstrate how the strategic objectives of the themes were delivered through the construction programme.
Bonus event: How the BBC successfully produced and broadcast the Olympics. Following on from the hugely successful Learning Legacy event series, the APM London branch invited the BBC to share how they delivered the multi-platform coverage of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
