London Olympics

Forefront Utilities diverted and replaced a gas main of up to 36” in diameter around the Olympics site.  This high profile job involved tight security and access, with other multi-utility operators in the same area. We set our timescales for delivery to allow completion of a new road, footpath surfaces and infrastructure to meet the Olympic development programme.

The works entailed detailed project planning and continuous reviews. We set aside additional gas team resources to overcome any potential short term delays on gas operations.  We also deployed additional reinstatement teams to minimise disruption to the Olympic sites. This involved regular communication with Transport for London project delivery as well as co-ordination with other utility companies working in the area.
