In a statement released today the union said that it would be “a huge missed opportunity” if a temporary structure was built to house broadcast journalists during the Games.
The news comes after the Olympic Delivery Authority said it was considering plans to split the International Broadcast Centre and the Media Press Centre on two separate sites, with the IBC located in temporary structures at the East London site.
But ODA chairman John Armitt has told Construction News that the ODA is working towards a preferred permanent solution.
He added: “We are looking at getting costs down and so are considering other places to locate elements of the media centre.
“But we are conscious that providing a permanent building is very important for Hackney.”
