In the district of Stratford, about six kilometres East of the City Centre of London, the Olympic Park was built on the River Lea on a 200-acre site.
GIG was awarded the contract for one of the seven residential buildings, consisting of 320 apartments, which initially served as accommodation for the athletes of the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012.
By means of specific modifications after the games, sophisticated affordable apartments were created. Our scope included 350 different types of windows. GIG also built the steel structure for the penthouses and winter gardens, balustrades and aluminium rainscreen facades and fibre-reinforced concrete elements which connect the seven buildings.
The first tenants moved into their new apartments in spring 2014.
