McDonald’s: embedding sustainability into the design, construction and disassembly of their Olympic Park restaurant

The planning of McDonald’s Olympic Park restaurants was an exciting challenge for McDonald’s. It was a large-scale and complex construction project in itself and, in order to meet the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG’s) sustainability and zero waste standards, the process of deconstruction had to be considered alongside the planning for design and construction of the restaurants. This approach led to the team successfully building a beautifully designed temporary restaurant that was not only the busiest McDonald’s in the world at Games time but was also almost entirely reused or recycled following the Games.
