Interior Services Group to manage temporary infrastructure work at Olympic venues

With one year to go until the start of the 2012 Olympics, AIM listed construction services business Interior Services Group (LON:ISG) has been appointed to provide construction management services for the temporary facilities and services at Olympic venues. ISG will manage ‘overlay’ at the venues during the London 2012 Games, which encompasses temporary spectator seating, tents, cabins and platforms as well as utilities, fire safety, specialist sports lighting and drainage. The contract was issued by the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG).

The overlay works are critical to the smooth running of both the Olympic and Paralympic Games, and the management contract incorporates the preparation, delivery and removal of all temporary facilities and services at venues, including the Olympic Stadium, Velodrome, Aquatics Centre and Water Polo Arena, Media Centre, Olympic and Paralympic Villages, Basketball Arena, Hockey Centre, Handball Arena and at Eton Manor for the wheelchair tennis. ISG’s involvement in the Olympics has already seen it build and hand over the Velodrome to the Olympic authorities.

ISG will directly manage the infrastructure requirements for the spectacular opening and closing ceremonies in the Olympic Stadium, as well as the installation of the largest temporary dining hall structure in the world, capable of serving 50,000 covers in one sitting.

David Lawther, the chief executive of ISG, said: “This latest award builds upon ISG's relationship with the London 2012 Games, following the successful completion of the award-winning Velodrome and the delivery of the 2012 BMX facility. The continuation of our close relationship with the London 2012 Games is an outstanding success for our project teams and a major acknowledgement of our capabilities.” In an interview with Stockopedia in March, Mr Lawther explained his plans to focus on building ISG’s international presence in order to support its blue chip client base.
