New Olympic Stadium Construction Jobs to be created in London

May 29th, 2009

Structural engineering jobs are helping the construction of London’s Olympic Stadium to progress.

The latest phase which began exactly one year ago, involves the internal fit-out of hundreds of rooms at the stadium. 700 rooms are being created in the area below the venue’s podium, which includes eight changing rooms and an 82-metre indoor warm-up track in the West Stand.  Tessa Jowell, the Olympics minister, said a new skyline was “starting to appear across east London” as a result of the construction work.

“One year after the start of construction on the Olympic Park and we are on-track to deliver a spectacular Olympic Games whilst bringing much-needed jobs and skills to the East End,” she commented.

The Olympic Stadium site is currently supporting 400 people in construction jobs, although this is set to increase to approximately 600 as the internal fit-out work requires more electricians, bricklayers and plumbers.

Earlier this month, the government announced that it planned to invest £324 million of the Olympic Delivery Authority’s budget in the Olympic Village.

    It would be great if some of this work filtered through to us up North, we are pretty quiet still.
