Olympic Stadium Design

Wow, here it is, the new design of the Olympic Stadium for the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games.

As this project will be underway in early 2008, hopefully we will see some of the supply chain opportunities for lower tier contractors and sub-contractors arising from this 80,000 seater stadium.
