Athlete's Village No. 1

Stratford, London

Athlete’s Village No1, comprised 8 blocks ranging from 8 – 12 storeys around a central 1st floor landscaped podium slab, which acted as a roof to the ground level parking zone.

Following progressive release of the respective ground floor slabs from the substructure package contractor, fast-track techniques such as slipforming the cores, precasting the columns and using a combination of pan system formwork and small edge tables on the upper levels, enabled key cycle times to be maintained.

The project comprised 8 blocks ranging from 8 - 12 storeys around a central 1st floor landscaped podium slab

This productivity was achieved within the Olympic Village environment, with complex logistics restrictions due to the vast level of simultaneous activity on the adjacent 16 plots containing similar structures, and rigorous processes to adhere to necessitating careful planning.
