The Project

Vision have been engaged with various contractors and JV parties since construction of the Olympic Park commenced....

The London 2012 Story: Vision’s involvement on the Olympic Park spans from the early stages of construction in 2009 to current involvement on the Olympic Stadium Transformation. Through our initial engagement with the ODA Delivery Partner CLM , Vision were initially responsible for the implementation and management of a site wide permit to dig system. This remit spanned all sub-contractor works across the Park and proved to be successful in safeguarding the H&S of the workforce and the integrity of buried services. In total Vision’s team are proud to have issued over 2000 permits during the pre-games construction programme.

In 2013 BAM Nuttall engaged Vision to carry out site wide surveys & to continue with the implementation of the permit-to-dig system that was so effective during the pre-games construction phases. This engagement was made through the Legacy project and carried on the good work of the pre-games construction phase.

In 2014 Vision were engaged by Balfour Beatty to carry out surveys around the Olympic Stadium as part of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Transformation project works. Again, these were carried out in conjunction with the on-going management of the permit-to-dig system and covered 3D Utility Surveys & Topographical Surveys of the construction areas.
