UK contractors to win work in Brazil for 2016 Olympics?
Now UK contractors involved in the construction of the 2012 Olympics in London are meeting five of the biggest Brazilian construction forms in a bid to win work for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janiero.
The meeting has been orchestrated by UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and will see companies who have experience on the Olympics (Arup, Atkins and Davis Langdon are some of the UK companies invited) to meet Brazilian firms OAS, Odebrecht and Andrade Gutierrez, amongst others.
Building News report that the UK firms will offer guidance and expertise on how to build world class, low-carbon stadiums and arenas, and offer the Brazilians advice on how to get the most out of their £8.6 billion Olympics warchest. This will give UK firms the chance to win work in Brazil for the 2016 Olympics and create new jobs for UK contractors.
The UKTI’s Andrew Bacchus confirmed this, saying “the objective is to get in front of the companies who will be picking up the big contracts for 2016, to help UK firms who want to be part of consortiums being put together, or part of these big firms’ supply chains.”
