Are you an Olympic neighbour?

With the Olympics just a matter of months away, the attention of the world will slowly be turning to Great Britain and London in particular. With several million visitors expected to visit these shores from around the world and TV stations from nearly every country bringing their camera crews to London, this is a great opportunity for the UK construction industry to showcase the fantastic work which is being undertaken and to promote the industry to a worldwide audience.

By now you will probably know if your site is close to one of the venues for those events which will take athletes and audiences outside of the Olympic Park. Numerous events including the marathon, long distance walk, and road cycling will see athletes and spectators at venues across the City and perhaps gathered outside your site. Of course, the Olympic events are not restricted just to London, with events taking place the length and breadth of the British Isles. For full details of the venues, please click here.

June will also see the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee being celebrated with a number of events taking place including one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the Thames.

Please take this opportunity to ensure that your site presents a positive image of your company and the industry as a whole. We will be contacting those sites we have identified as being in close proximity to one of these events in the near future to offer our own support, but we are sure you will already have your own plans to show why the UK construction industry is a world leader.
