London 2012 – Controlling Delivery

10 February 2012

Hear customer keynote speaker, David Birch, Head of Programme Controls from CLM Delivery Partner, Olympic Delivery speak at this year’s UK & EMEA Primavera Conference 2012 - 8th March at CBI Conference Centre, Central London.

This is a must attend event if you or your company is involved with large scale projects. David Birch will be highlighting the use of Primavera whilst managing the all important planning for this year’s London 2012 Olympics. 

The challenge was great – to provide a stage for the world’s best athletes to compete in the world’s greatest sporting events and in the process to create sustainable venues, infrastructure and parklands that would benefit the communities living and working in the area for generations to come. To achieve this a major programme of construction works had to be planned, contracted for and delivered on a largely derelict and polluted site in east London. The timescale for delivery was fixed, and public scrutiny of the entire project was intense. This presentation will focus on how programme and project control played a key part in delivering the Olympic Park and Offsite venues on or before time and under budget. The lessons learned will show that there was no single magic ingredient but rather highlight which management tools worked best at different stages of the programme.
