U.K.-Based Construction Firm Balfour Beatty Lands $252M London Olympic Stadium Deal
Published January 7, 2014
MORE FOR BALFOUR: In London, Andy Sharman reported the award "continues Balfour’s work on infrastructure" related to the 2012 London Games. It has "undertaken a number of projects" at the Olympic Park, including the redevelopment of the Zaha Hadid-designed Aquatics Centre, which "features moveable floors and walls and is set to open to the public in the spring." Balfour "expects work to begin in the coming weeks" and to finish in spring '16, after which West Ham "will make the stadium its permanent home" (FINANCIAL TIMES, 1/6). In London, Lynch also reported Balfour Beatty, which beat the original builder of the stadium, Robert McAlpine, for the conversion job, "will employ up to 400 people on the project, taking on about 30 apprentices." The work is being carried out for E20 Stadium, the joint venture between the London Legacy Development Corp. and Newham Council "which will manage the stadium" (EVENING STANDARD, 1/6). In Darlington, Steven Hugill reported it will "also be a new national competition stadium for UK athletics," hosting regional and national age group championships, as well as elite int'l events, such as the 2017 IAAF World Championships (NORTHERN ECHO, 1/6).
