Description

This publication contributes to the ‘learning legacy’ for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and shares the lessons learned about sustainable design and construction on this exceptional project with the construction industry. The report examines the achievement of high levels of sustainability on two of the key venues at the Olympic Park: the use of the BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) in the design and construction of the Velodrome and Aquatics Centre; and the use of the Code for Sustainable Homes on the Olympic and Paralympic Village. The findings of these projects will be especially valuable to clients, designers and contractors.
