Fifth Olympic venue completed

14 Jul 11 Construction work has been completed on the London 2012 International Broadcast Centre (IBC). It is the fifth venue to be completed on the Olympic Park.

The 275m-long IBC building will form part of the main media complex – a 24-hour media hub which also includes the main press centre.  The complex will cater for more than 20,000 broadcasters, journalists and photographers.

Structural steelwork contractor was Severfield Reeve.

The venue was completed on time and within budget. Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) chairman John Armitt said: “The Olympic Park project is on schedule and within budget. Today’s announcement of the completion of the International Broadcast Centre means that with over a year to go to the Games five of the main venues on the site have now finished construction, allowing time for LOCOG to install overlay and run test events.

“The ODA has hit all of its milestones to date and, while we are not complacent, we are firmly on track to deliver the venues and infrastructure required for the Games and in legacy as planned.”
