Bids being accepted for construction on Olympics hub | 6 June 2012
Bids are being accepted for the construction work required to fulfill one of the legacies to be left by the Olympic Games 2012 – a ‘visitor’s hub’ in Queen Elizabeth Park.
Cnplus.co.uk revealed that the South Park Hub Building in particular will be a focus for winning tender submissions; a project that will offer ‘a range of facilities’ to those heading to the park in the future.
The entire hub will span 4.3 acres, including a community building – which will measure 6,000 square feet and boast a cafe. Lawns will be created especially for community events, like picnics or educational sessions and the project is due to be completed in July 2013. A spokesman for the London Legacy Development Corporation, Andrew Altman, commented that the area will be “one of the most beautiful” London has seen.
“This hub will be at the heart of community life,” he said, whilst the cafe will provide a commercial slant to the project; potentially pulling in the funds required for upkeep.
The development may be the first of many Olympic-based projects, especially as mayor Boris Johnson has publicly committed to using the Games as a chance to create an ‘economic legacy’ for London.
“I have always said that if the Games are to mean anything we must use them as a springboard from which we can transform this city for generations to come,” he declared, cited by Buildingbetterbusiness.org.uk. “I will do all I can to help secure the Olympic legacy that has always been promised.”
