London’s bid for the 2012 Olympic Games set out to create the most sustainable Olympic Park ever and deliver a lasting legacy of regeneration for east London. The principles of sustainable development were embedded in the planning, design and construction of the Olympic Park. To deliver sustainability in design and construction the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) sought to use existing and recognised tools. One of the existing tools the ODA used to assess and rate the sustainability performance of 18 permanent infrastructure projects on the Olympic Park, plus the Olympic and Paralympic Village car park, was the Civil Engineering Environmental Quality Assessment and Award Scheme (CEEQUAL). CEEQUAL offered the ODA a reputable tool that was independent and externally audited.
