ODA seeking to avoid the lack of interest from bidders


THE Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) is seeking to avoid the lack of interest from bidders that hit procurement of the main stadium earlier this year. ODA design and regeneration director Alison Nimmo said last week that she wanted to avoid a repeat of the procurement of the main stadium, where a shortage of willing contractors meant that only one acceptable bid was received.

'We want to meet with the market. It is in nobody's interest to have one bidder on a project.' Discussion on how to build the venue Zaha Hadid and Arup's revised designs will follow the same format as consultation on the Olympic Park utilities contract. All interested parties were invited to an 'industry day', followed by a series of smaller discussions with the ODA.
