London 2012 | Central Park Bridge Design Contest
At the Ready for Business 2012 site, we keep track of live tenders (click on Tenders) related to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. This is the latest notice published on the site.
The Olympic Park bridges will form an important part of the infrastructure and the operation of the park both during the games and into the legacy of the games. The ODA (Olympic Delivery Authority) wishes to procure the design of one of the Olympic Park footbridges, through a design contest.
The bridge (currently numbered F06) is located on the central pedestrian concourse running north to south through the Olympic Park and is in close proximity of the Olympic Stadium. The ODA is committed to the delivery of design quality and is seeking submissions from applicants that can demonstrate a high level of creativity and design quality.
Submissions from both established and emerging design practices are encouraged. The ODA believes that the design team will require a strong leader supported and complemented by other members of the design community.
Design: the bridge will span approximately 26 m over Carpenters Lock on the River Lea Waterway and is to be constructed in 2 permanent separate spans for legacy. A temporary bridge will be constructed between these 2 permanent spans to provide the necessary bridge width to accommodate crowd numbers for the games.
If you are feeling creative, you will need to respond by 16/06/2007!
