Construction Industry Proud of Building the Olympic Venue for London 2012

The man in charge of building the Olympic venue for London 2012, John Armitt, has told Reuters News that this summer’s Olympics will be a great advertisement for Britain’s construction sector.

The Olympic venue was successfully completed both on time and within the £7 billion budget. This serves as an excellent stimulus for boosting British construction and as an example to building companies around the globe.

Armitt, who is a chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and responsible for the Games infrastructure, believes the Olympic Park in East London will be a great showcase for courtiers around the world to look at the knowledge and the skills of Britain’s building engineering construction industry.

Talking about the legacy of British construction and pointing out the great achievements in the building sector, Mr Armitt said: “British contractors and consultants have been delivering infrastructure around the world for the past 200 years.”

“What this enables them to do is reinforce those credentials in the overseas markets. The Olympics is an opportunity for us to build our self-confidence as a country.”- added Mr Armitt.
