London 2012 to help UK contractors win worldwide work
The successful construction of the Olympic venues should help UK contractors and consultants win major projects worldwide.
International consultant McBains Cooper is now urging government trade teams to wave the flag abroad for the UK construction industry.
McBains Cooper is suggesting London 2012 is being used as an example of how major projects should be built. Chief Executive Michael Thirkettle said,
“The fact is that in comparison to any other recent major sporting events – and some recent Olympics – London 2012 construction has run far faster and more efficiently.
That has been noted by other countries, and frankly, because of our reputation, British construction and professional consultancy businesses are amongst the very few who can travel the world to help drive and deliver major projects for other venue cities.”
