New mixed-use quarter rising up at London Olympia
Due to be completed by 2024, the £1.3Bn Olympia redevelopment scheme is progressing on schedule as the initial steelwork elements have begun to be erected.
A total of seven new buildings are to be built on the site of the historic west London events venue. To make space for the redevelopment, the Olympia Central Hall has been demolished, while the Olympia National and Olympia Grand, both Grade II-listed, are being incorporated into the new scheme.
Working on behalf of Laing O’Rourke, BHC is erecting the steelwork, which includes 12,000t for the Central Venue building, and a further 7,000t for another smaller venue, an office building, an hotel and a public realm podium.
