The UK Olympic Delivery Authority is responsible for providing infrastructure to serve the biggest sporting event in the world and support the long-term regeneration of east London. The scale of development for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games presented an opportunity to implement a sustainable, low-carbondioxide development. This paper describes the scope of the utilities programme and the design and procurement strategies that were employed and identifies some of the challenges that have been overcome to deliver utilities infrastructure to a tight programme and with significant private-sector investment.
