Nuttall will be responsible for managing the transformation of 40 hectares of former industrial land and landfill currently being cleared and cleaned, into new open spaces, parklands and waterways fit for the Games and legacy.
This will include hard and soft landscape works including tree planting and the construction of the concourse which will link all the venues, entrances and parklands. The contract will also include creating new wetland and other wildlife habitats, installing new allotments and permanent park furniture, lighting, irrigation and drainage.
Nuttall will procure and manage a number of specialist subcontractors and suppliers through a series of packages, the first of which will be for the trees and plants required for the whole Park, which will be issued later this year.
ODA head of parklands and public realm John Hopkins said: “The project is on track and we will be working with our contractor to quickly roll-out the process of buying the tree and plant packages for the whole of the Park.”
A contract for the landscaping of the south of the park will be issued later in 2008.
