The development of the Athletes Village for the London 2012 Olympic Games was one of the capital’s largest building projects in recent history. It involved over 2,000 contractors speaking 30 languages and lasted four years. It was a high-profile project with rigorous scrutiny on budgets, timescales, security and health & safety. The development contract was awarded to Lend Lease and they commissioned Wire to consult on, create and deliver a complete range of onsite communication including; induction guidelines, critical onsite communications, staff updates, emergency onsite updates, visitor information, community engagement and marketing materials.
The project was delivered on-time, under budget and with the best health & safety and security record for a project of this size anywhere, ever.
