NEC in Action: Olympic Velodrome
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.
The Olympic Velodrome was procured under a NEC3 Contract, and it was the first major venue to be completed at the Olympic Park in London for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
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.
The Velodrome is the most energy-efficient venue in the Olympic Park, achieving a 31% improvement over 2006 Building Regulations part L requirements. The design team of Hopkins Architects, Expedition Engineering and service engineer BDSP also sought to minimise the amount of construction material used through a detailed value engineering exercise. 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.
