Purpose of the presentation
This presentation was given at BASE Birmingham on 11 April 2013. The purpose of the presentation was to give insight into how the Olympic Park approached development and delivered commitments to sustainability. It highlights the carbon strategy for the development and outlines how the measures taken contributed to making the 2012 games the ‘greenest olympics ever’.
Relevance to the region
The ambition and scale of this construction can serve as good practice to those looking to implement large-scale development in the West Midlands.
What SWM liked
There is often seen to be a trade-off between environmental and economic benefits. SWM like that this project demonstrates that sustainability does not have to break the bank and can be delivered in the construction industry alongside economic targets.
