Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games
The Peruvian government appointed the UK Department for International Trade (DIT) as its delivery partner for the games in April 2017. In turn DIT engaged Arup, Mace and 4global as the UK delivery team to provide advice, assurance and support to the government’s special project office, PEJP Lima 2019
. NEC contracts were used to facilitate fast-track delivery of US$500 million (£400 million) of new and upgraded venues and facilities at 19 sites in Lima, Peru.
Mace project director Frank Randles says the NEC-based delivery strategy resulted in a refreshed and revitalised procurement approach for Peru
. He continued ‘The NEC contracting approach at Lima 2019 has genuinely helped to transform the construction industry in Peru. It has leveraged positive behaviours across the Peruvian public sector, and there is now real confidence that a US$160 billion infrastructure gap in Peru can be closed.’
Held between 26 July and 1 September 2019, the games outsold all previous 17 quadrennial events with over 650,000 ticket sales.
