Location: Olympic Park, Hackney
GKR have been in a privileged position to have won work on four venues within the Olympic Park which include The Velodrome, Hockey Venue, BMX track and the Main Olympic Stadium.
These works have included various access scaffolds and guardrail protection systems all erected within the busy, high profile location of the Park and all with the high standards of Health & Safety that GKR are consistently providing throughout all projects which have been praised by the recent awards received.
With the 2012 Games fast approaching and the increasing media attention, GKR have already been involved with the BBC with the broadcast of two radio interviews on BBC Radio Kent and on BBC South East Today discussing the role of GKR within Kent’s contribution to the 2012 Games.
