This paper provides an overview of how the UK's Olympic Delivery Authority, its delivery partners and others have worked together to facilitate the huge logistical challenge of transporting spectators to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the world's largest sporting event. Over 10 million spectator tickets are available for the 27 days of games, and transporting those people to and from the venues has to take place while keeping London and the rest of the UK moving. The paper describes the complex planning and delivery of transport infrastructure and services that will help to ensure that London 2012 is a success. Source

The Olympic Park site in east London was fragmented, polluted and divided by pylons and railways. In preparation for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the UK's Olympic Delivery Authority has implemented environmental improvement on a huge scale - including remediating large swathes of the former industrial land, repairing and improving the waterways, removing invasive plants in river and rail corridors, and creating new habitats for native flora and fauna. This paper considers the London 2012 environmental strategy, the challenges in developing and implementing the strategy across the project, the achievements with regard to ecology, air quality, noise and waste, and the lessons which have been learned.

The challenging sustainability commitments of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games reflect a comprehensive approach to minimising the impact of the games on the environment while promoting social and economic improvement. The Olympic Delivery Authority's sustainable development strategy reflects industry best practice as well as national and regional policy. This paper considers the Olympic Delivery Authority's sustainability strategy, the challenges in developing and implementing it across the project, the resulting achievements - with particular focus on some of the projects - and the lessons which have been learned.

The fundamental aims of the Olympic Delivery Authority's procurement team were to deliver the required London 2012 contracts in time for construction to be completed by July 2011, and to implement policy objectives. This paper explains how venueclusters and pan-venue packages were used to centralise the supply of commodities and support policy objectives. It also reports how the NEC3 suite of contracts was selected and amended to reflect delivery obligations and brand restrictions, and how the contracts worked in practice. Source

The UK's Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) was established in 2006 to construct the new venues and infrastructure required to host the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. These responsibilities were carried out in conjunction with CLM, a delivery partner from the private sector. This paper reviews how ODA was organised and describes the programme management and assurance practices deployed. The delivery strategies established, coupled with an effective relationship between ODA and its delivery partner and rigorous programme controls, facilitated successful delivery of the £7 billion of venues and infrastructure needed for the games.
