London 2012 – who does what


Government Olympic Executive


The GOE is the section within the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) which oversees the London 2012 project on behalf of the Government, ensuring that it is delivered on time, within budget, represents value for public money and benefits the whole of the UK. This is done across the project by identifying and solving problems, delivering the public sector effort and being accountable to Parliament and the public.


The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games


LOCOG is the private company responsible for staging the London 2012 Games and reports to
the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).


Olympic Delivery Authority


The ODA is the non-departmental public body responsible for building the permanent venues and infrastructure needed for the Games.


The Mayor of London


The Mayor of London leads on delivering the legacy of the London 2012 Games for London and ensuring that people across the capital benefit from London’s role as the host city. He is also responsible for ensuring the smooth running of London during Games-time whilst also delivering an outstanding 2012 experience for residents and visitors.


Olympic Park Legacy Company


The OPLC is a not-for-profit company responsible for the long-term planning, development, management and maintenance of the Olympic Park and its facilities after the Games.


London Development Agency


The LDA is responsible for delivering and maximising the long-term sustainable benefits of the London 2012 Games for London’s communities and economy.


British Olympic Association


As the National Olympic Committee for Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the BOA is responsible for the selection, preparation and management of TeamGB at every Games, including the London 2012 Olympics. It is also in charge of developing the Olympic movement throughout the UK.


British Paralympic Association


A registered charity, the BPA is the National Paralympic Committee for Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Under the brand name ParalympicsGB, it selects, prepares and manages the British Paralympic team at each Paralympic Games and raises the money to meet the costs that this entails.


The Olympic Board


The Olympic Board is co-chaired by the Secretary of State for Culture, the Olympics, Media and Sport and the Mayor of London, and is responsible for coordinating the successful delivery of the Games and its legacy. Other members are the BOA chairman and the chair of LOCOG.


Foreword


Last year was one of considerable progress and achievement for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. We saw the Olympic Stadium floodlights turned on for the first time by the Prime Minister, the first purpose-built London 2012 venue completed and the Government’s legacy vision published.


On time and within budget, the London 2012 project is in good shape. Much credit must go to all the different teams who are tirelessly working on the project to ensure it is delivered to schedule and to a high standard. This includes more than 12,000 workers currently on the Olympic Park and Village. Thanks to each and every one of them, 79 per cent of the venues and infrastructure for Games-time are completed.

The funding package for the Games remains at £9.298bn following the Government’s Spending Review announcement on 20 October 2010. The ODA’s Anticipated Final Cost of the project now stands at £7.301bn, which includes additional funding for Park Operations. Around £0.5 billion of contingency remains available for programme-wide risks and we continue strictly to control its release. In addition, we are making cost savings throughout the project. A total of over £780m in savings has been achieved by the ODA since November 2007.

We are looking forward to delivering a world-class Games, but we also want to ensure a lasting sporting, economic and social legacy for everyone in the UK. We are already seeing the legacy of London 2012 even before the Games have begun. Businesses around the UK have been helped through the tough economic climate by winning contract opportunities linked to London 2012. To take one example: the wave-shaped design of the Aquatics Centre roof was manufactured by a business in Newport, using steel fabricated in Gateshead, Motherwell, and Scunthorpe.

With the UK’s success at the Commonwealth Games and the introduction of new Government initiatives, 2010 was also an important year for sport. I am determined to promote sport at the grassroots level and inspire everyone in the UK to be active and enjoy healthy lifestyles. A large part of realising that ambition is the lottery-funded ‘Places People Play’ initiative, run by Sport England, that will upgrade up to 1,000 local sports clubs and facilities as well as fund the recruitment, training and deployment of 40,000 sports leaders.

In 2011, we will see the excitement for the Games building up across the country as venues complete on the Olympic Park, tickets for the Games go on sale and thousands of people get the once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a Games-time volunteer. I am looking forward to a fantastic year of action in sport and a year in which individuals up and down the country begin to plan their Games-time experience.

Hugh Robertson MP

Minister for Sport and the Olympics

Programme Progress

Over the past two years the ODA has set out in advance the milestones it has planned to achieve for different phases of the build project.

Here is the progress against milestones to 27 July 2011 as well as the plans for during and after the Games.


“We can see the pieces of the puzzle falling into place now, and the big picture is rapidly becoming visible. Preparations are advancing at an astonishing rate and LOCOG, the ODA and their partners should be congratulated for the high quality of the work they are producing across this complex project.”

Denis Oswald, Chairman, IOC Coordination Commission, November 2010


Milestone 1

Construction of the Olympic Stadium will be complete and the venue ready to be handed over.


Progress: The Olympic Stadium is structurally complete with the cable net roof covered. All spectator seats have been installed and the 14 lighting towers are in place, with the lights officially switched on for the first time in December. The ground is ready for laying the grass field and installing the running track, with the Stadium on schedule for completion in 2011.


During the Games: The 80,000-capacity Olympic Stadium will host the Athletics events as well as the Opening and Closing Ceremonies. Its innovative design means its capacity can be reduced following the Games.


After the Games: There has been considerable interest and enthusiasm in the future use of the Olympic Stadium. In the light of this, the OPLC will ensure a suitable long-term, sustainable legacy use is identified.

Milestone 2

Construction of the Aquatics Centre will be complete and the venue ready to be handed over.


Progress: The Aquatics Centre permanent structure and wave-shaped roof are in place, with the structures of the temporary seating stands for Games-time spectators nearing completion. Inside the venue, work is progressing on the ceiling timber cladding, with the six bespoke concrete diving boards being cast and the majority of the three pools’ 180,000 tiles now installed.


During the Games: The Aquatics Centre will have a 50m competition pool, a 25m competition diving pool, a 50m warm-up pool and a ‘dry’ warm-up area for divers. The majority of the 17,500 spectators will be seated in two temporary wings.


After the Games: The Aquatics Centre will be transformed into a facility for the local community, clubs and schools, as well as elite swimmers. The two temporary wings will be removed, leaving 2,500 seats – and it will be possible to increase the capacity to 3,500 for major competitions. The OPLC is currently seeking expressions of interest from potential operators for the Aquatics Centre.


Milestone 3

Construction of the Velodrome will be complete and the venue ready to be handed over.


Progress: The Velodrome structure is complete and watertight. The venue remains on target to be the first Olympic Park sporting venue to be completed early in 2011.


During the Games: The Velodrome’s lower tier will have 3,500 seats located all the way around the track to create the best possible spectator atmosphere during the cycling events. A further 2,500 seats will be located in two upper tiers within the curves of the venue’s roof. A 400m BMX Circuit and temporary seating will be built alongside the Velodrome.


After the Games: The temporary seating for the BMX Circuit will be removed and the track reconfigured. To complement the Velodrome, a new mountain bike course and road cycle circuit will be added along with a café, bike hire and cycle workshop facilities, creating a VeloPark for the local community, sports clubs and elite athletes. The facility will be owned, funded and run by the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.


Milestone 4

Construction of the International Broadcast Centre/Main Press Centre (IBC/MPC) will be complete and ready for occupation by the Olympic Broadcasting Service and the London 2012 Organising Committee.


Progress: The structures of the IBC, MPC and Multi-Storey Car Park are all complete. With the IBC and MPC watertight, mechanical and electrical works are progressing inside both. Externally, ground works are progressing for the temporary ‘high street’ providing facilities for journalists and broadcasters during the Games.

During the Games: The IBC/MPC will be a 24-hour media hub for around 20,000 broadcasters, photographers and journalists – bringing the Games to an estimated four billion people worldwide. As well as offices and studios, the facilities include a catering village, high street and transport mall.

After the Games: The flexibly designed facilities will create more than 90,000 sq m of business space for a range of prospective tenants and uses, with the potential to generate thousands of new jobs. The OPLC has opened expressions of interest for the future use of the IBC/MPC.


Milestone 5

Construction of the Handball and Basketball Arenas will be complete and the venues ready to be handed over.


Progress: The structure of the Handball Arena is complete and weather-tight, with the roof’s 88 natural light-pipes installed and the top half of the building fully clad in copper. Inside the structurally complete and fully covered Basketball Arena, the 12,000 seats are being installed with the lifts, toilets and external service rooms under construction.


During the Games: The 7,000-capacity Handball Arena will host the preliminary rounds and quarter-finals of the Handball competition, the Fencing discipline of Modern Pentathlon and, in the Paralympic Games, Goalball. The Basketball Arena will be one of the largest temporary venues built for any Games and will host Basketball, Wheelchair Basketball, Wheelchair Rugby and the final stages of the Handball competition in front of up to 12,000 spectators.


After the Games: The Handball Arena will be transformed into a new 7,500-seat Multi-Use Arena with flexible seating capacity and facilities for a wide range of indoor sports training and competitions, as well as cultural and business events. The Basketball Arena will be taken down after the Games, with parts of it expected to be reused or relocated elsewhere in the UK. The OPLC is currently seeking expressions of interest from potential operators for the Handball arena.


Milestone 6

Construction of the Lee Valley White Water Centre will be complete and the venue handed over to the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority.


Progress: In December 2010, HRH The Princess Royal officially unveiled the Lee Valley White Water Centre – the first brand new London 2012 venue completed. Lee Valley Regional Park Authority will open the venue to the public in 2011, delivering an early legacy over a year before the Games.

During the Games: Up to 12,000 spectators will watch the Olympic Canoe Slalom events along the 300m competition course. A 160m intermediate course will be used by athletes for training and warm-up.

After the Games: The venue will be owned and operated by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority as a sporting and leisure facility for canoeing and white water rafting as well as a major competition and training venue.


Milestone 7

Construction work on Eton Manor and Royal Artillery Barracks will be underway and on track to be completed as planned in spring 2012.


Progress: Construction is underway on Eton Manor, with the sites for the temporary swimming pools being dug out, foundations for the tennis courts and stands progressing, and structural works starting on the permanent sports complex. Planning permission has been secured for construction at Royal Artillery Barracks with a contractor due to be appointed early in 2011.
