Engineered to Perform: Regeneration and Resilience at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

BuroHappold & London Legacy Development Corporation

Since 2004 BuroHappold have played a key role in producing and implementing sitewide strategies for energy, water, utilities infrastructure and flood risk management on the Park. They are now involved in many of the legacy developments, including Olympicopolis, East wick and Sweetwater, the Olympic Stadium transformation and Here East.

The focus of this session will be resilience, with specific focus on adaptability. We will look back on the planning of the Olympic Park and forward to the emerging legacy for London. We will explore what has changed over the past 10 years and how the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has successfully responded to those changes. We will reflect on lessons learned and introduce a new approach to delivering resilience for cities and major developments.

Jennifer Daothong, Senior Sustainability Manager, LLDC
Jennifer will describe the sustainability objectives, priority themes and long term development plans for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the role that LLDC is playing in delivering a successful and resilient legacy of social, economic and environmental regeneration.

Bob Tong, Director Infrastructure, BuroHappold
Bob will outline the original infrastructure plans for the Games, and describe how these have been adapted to accommodate different legacy land uses.

Duncan Price, Director Sustainability, BuroHappold
Duncan will explain how buildings and sites on the QEOP have been adapted for reuse with a particular emphasis on how the Stratford Waterfront development is responding to the themes of sustainability, health and wellbeing and resilience.

Using technology to deliver better places: Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

Mace, London Legacy Development Corporation, Engie


Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has been selected by Climate-KIC as one of the first districts to start working with their European-wide SSD programme to trial innovative sustainability solutions. Together, the SSD partners co-develop integrated solutions which will have measurable environmental, social and economic benefits, these solutions will provide exemplars that can be replicated city-wide or in other districts.

LLDC and SSD partner, Engie will talk through the technical interventions that are enabling them to deliver smart, integrated approaches to achieving enhanced sustainability outcomes and better user experience for the iconic sporting venues on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the energy and carbon ecosystems that support them. Delegates will then be taken on a tour of one of the energy centres powering the largest district energy network in the United Kingdom.
