The following companies will be submitting tenders for some or all of the three remaining contracts:

  • Galliford Try
  • Willmott Dixon / Inspace
  • Brookfield Europe
  • Bennett Construction Limited
  • North Midland Construction
  • Miller Construction
  • Mansell
  • Morgan Ashurst
  • Durkan Limited
  • Byrne Group
  • P Elliott
  • Carillion Building
  • John Sisk and Son
  • Sir Robert McAlpine  
  • Higgins Construction

The Olympic Delivery Authority expects all three contracts to be awarded by the end of the year.

After the Games, all 11 buildings will be converted into residential apartments.
