With memories of the 2012 Olympics still very much alive, the 2013 Construction News Awards recognised the immense amount of work that went in to the Olympic Park, with main contractor BAM Nuttall receiving the prestigious ‘Best Project of the Year Award’ for projects over £50 million.
The Award covered the infrastructure work at the East-London site and included the structures, roads and bridges; landscaping and public areas; Olympic screening areas and enabling works.
Construction News noted that BAM Nuttall was the only contractor to have been present throughout the entire construction programme and received the award for their excellent work, timely completion and sustainability credentials.
As part of this programme, MMA Architectural Systems, the UK’s sole supplier of the renowned Jakob range of stainless steel systems, supplied its Webnet wire mesh system for the balustrades along the Olympic park bridges and walkways. Commenting after the award, the company’s Director, Justin Errington said: “We were absolutely delighted to have been involved in such a prestigious project and for it to have been recognised by Construction News in this way is the icing on the cake. We’d like to add our congratulations to everyone involved in delivering this landmark facility.”
