With tier one contractors in place and venue designs finalised, work is intensifying on the Olympic Park ready for construction to get this summer. 2012 opens construction opportunities like never seen before in the UK, with over 50,000 contracts available throughout the Games supply chain. With tier one contractors contractually bound to use a wider supply chain, the ODA are attempting to ensure smaller firms benefit from wealth of work on the mega-project. Will your company be one of them?
