The legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games continues…

We are thrilled to announce that we have received our Licence Agreement as a recognised supplier at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

This new scheme – the first of its kind – has given recognition to all those suppliers that have played a vital part in the success of the London 2012 Games.

ACO supplied the sustainable drainage systems to six of the major Olympic venues, all of which required very specific products and installations. As ACO were involved in the planning stages of each project all the way through to the completion, we were able to meet the high standards that were set out by the British Olympic Association (“BOA”). The Olympic Park has been defined by its ground-breaking engineering and the radical new approach to sustainability.

Last week ACO was awarded the UK Green Building Council Sustainable Stand at Ecobuild 2013, and the Olympic licence has only reaffirmed our credentials as a sustainable business within the business sector.

One thought on “The legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games continues…

  1. In terms of SuDs and water, I understood the London 2012 was one of the least sustainable. Did the EA refuse all soakaways / discharge to ground and any storm attenuation – 2 central components of SuDs?

    I understand the EA had concerns about the migration of contaminates in the ground by use of SuDs, but have not seen any evidence to justify rejection. Did preventing SuDs really provide environmental benefit?
