CLM'S RUNNING mates in the bid to be the London 2012 delivery partner are still waiting to be handed Olympic contracts six months after the consortium won the job, it emerged this week.
The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) appointed the CLM joint venture of CH2M Hill, Laing O'Rourke and Mace to manage construction of the Olympic Park in August (NCE 7 September 2006).
But several of the rms that worked with CLM to win the bid are still waiting for their future on the project to be guaranteed.
A CLM spokesman said most rms had been appointed by the ODA but confirmed some firms are still waiting 'A number of strategic partners were on the CLM bid team and were appointed as part of the Delivery Partner [contract].
As the contracting authority the ODA still approves their contracts. All of these partners are working as part of CLM and the majority have already signed their contracts.' Contract negotiations between the ODA and those firms yet to sign are ongoing, the spokesman added.
The CLM contract with the ODA is on a pain/gain share basis and will be worth anything between £100M and £400M (NCE 25 January).
Specialist consultancies working as part of CLM include quantity surveyor Davis Langdon, structural engineer Bianchi Morley and risk consultant Control Risks.
A Control Risks spokesman refused to confirm whether the company had its CLM contract had been ratied by the ODA.
'We are the strategic partners of CLM and are in discussion with CLM and the ODA on how we move forward, ' he said.
