Construction on London 2012’s Olympic stadium is now complete by the design practice, Populous. Started in May 2008, the 80.000-seat stadium has grown over the past three years from its foundations into one of the most remarkable buildings on London’s eastern skyline. The final piece of turf was laid on March 29th at an event attended by ODA – Olympic Delivery Authority – Chairman, John Armitt.

According to ODA the construction is complete three months ahead of schedule and cost £10 million less that the original estimate. With construction now complete, work will continue on the fit-out of the new stadium. The final track surface will be laid later this year.

Rod Sheard, Senior Principal at Populous, the Stadium architect said: “The construction of the world’s most environmentally friendly Olympic Stadium has taken just over 1,000 days, in the world of major construction it could be considered a sprint, its completion marks the beginning of the end of the construction phase of London’s Olympic Games. We can now all look forward to just under 500 days of the final preparation to when the world will see this innovative design perform for the first time.”
