Davendra Dabasia, from the Olympic Delivery Authority, and Richard Arnold, from Wrenbridge Sport, will be leading a technical visit to the Olympic Velodrome in London, on 6th September 2016.

This workshop will includes a site visit to the Olympic Velodrome and a presentation led by Davendra Dabasia and Richard Arnold. It will explore the benefits of using NEC3 in achieving construction progress, cost performances and efficient dispute resolution as a result of a proactive use of the contracts.

This resulted in contractor ISG developing a lightweight 30kg/m2 cable-net system, which saved 1000t of steelwork and reduced the size and depth of foundations. benefits of using NEC3 in achieving construction progress, cost performances and efficient dispute resolution as a result of a proactive use of the contracts.
