The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) will today hand over the Olympic and Paralympic Village to games organiser the London 2012 Organising Committee (Locog).
With exactly six months to go until the opening ceremony, Locog will now begin work on fitting out the 2,818 apartment building ready of athletes and officials from across the world.
The ODA began work on the village in June 2008. Over 16,500 people have been involved in the construction, which is spread across eleven residential plots, together with courtyards, gardens and balconies.
The overlay work includes installing 64,000 bed sheets and 11,000 sofas, constructing the 24-hour main dining facility with 5,000 seats, and building the Olympic Village Plaza, the main social hub featuring essential shops and services.
