Atkins earns its place in the latest LLDC framework
The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), which oversees the legacy of the 2012 Olympics, has awarded the design, engineering and project management consultancy firm single-source status as a multidisciplinary provider for a range of services focused about creating places to live, work and play as part of the transformation of the East London area that hosted the games a decade ago.
Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the venue for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, is expected to be the site of a truly lasting legacy for the region, which has always been a primary focus in hosting the games.
Atkins began working with the organization of the London 2012 Olympics in 2005, when it was announced that the British capital had successfully bid for the games. This latest frame is the third frame Atkins has won from LLDC, which will last for four years.
Having worked successfully to provide the infrastructure needed for the 2012 games, Atkins has since worked with LLDC to deliver on its promise to create a vibrant, innovative and sustainable new neighborhood for the city.
Atkins Managing Director of Infrastructure, Mike McNicholas, was Project Director for the original London 2012 delivery program and, speaking of the award, said: “We, as a company and myself, started work on London 2012 in December 2005, a few months after the UK claimed victory. the auction. With the new executive appointment, it will take the time we’ve been working on development and his legacy at 21, which is a fantastic achievement in many ways.
“The framework will provide Atkins with a platform to contribute to the legacy program of placing social value at the heart of Olympic legacy.
“But also, this executive win really serves to underscore the importance of always keeping the focus on the customer above for such a long time, while adapting to stay relevant as the customer evolves over more 20 years.”
The LLDC was established in 2012 with the aim of transforming the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park into a vibrant new heart for East London, creating opportunities for locals and driving innovation and growth in the capital and wider United Kingdom.
Mark Camley, Executive Director of Park and Venue Operations for LLDC, said: “Atkins has consistently delivered to a high standard since LLDC’s inception ten years ago, and before that, as a member of the London 2012 delivery.
“They will help us deliver on our promise of a lasting and meaningful legacy for London 2012, with sustainability and social value at its core.”
