The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park has benefited from a range of security solutions provided by ASSA ABLOY UK Specification.
Using the 2012 Olympic Games as an opportunity to develop a dynamic heart for the east London community, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) had a long-term plan to use the buildings, making durability of products a key factor.
The ASSA ABLOY UK Specification team worked closely with the ODA management to ensure the products were ergonomically fit for purpose whilst being aesthetically appealing.
Products installed at the site included access control solutions and electric locks in the main stadium, steel doorstep in the velodrome and multi-point locking in the athletes’ village.
ASSA ABLOY UK’s managing director, David Wigglesworth, commented: “All eyes were on the Park, so we felt a great responsibility to provide impressive solutions that complemented the buildings’ aesthetics, whilst ensuring the safe, manageable and efficient flow of high levels of traffic throughout the facility.”
The team was challenged with six different projects within the development, each with various functional requirements. Thanks to ASSA ABLOY UK Specification’s extensive experience in supplying sporting venues and its large product portfolio, the project was a success.
David concluded: “It was an honour to have contributed to the development of what is now one of the most iconic sports venues in the UK, and it is great to see the legacy continue to help the local economy and community.”
