Anord have become the first Irish company to secure a contract for the London 2012 Olympics and have recently registered on the Compete For web site.

The London 2012 Olympics provides an exciting oportunity for many Irish businesses. With the opportunity for 250 major contracts and 2000 smaller contracts the spend is currently estimated at £9 billion. Anord worked in conjuction with Murphy's and their design partner Oscar Faber on the Lower Lea Valley Cable tunnel project. Anord firmly believes that the direction of Enterprise Ireland will allow them to showcase what they can offer in the UK arena. Anord are confident that this first opportunity will lead to greater work in the future in both Olympic projects and other infrastructure developments in the UK.

Speaking on RTE radio 1, the Irish Minister for Enterprise, Trade & Employment, MicheŠl Martin, remarked that the Irish construction industry should be looking abroad for opportunities. MicheŠl spoke of the opportunities offered by the London Olympics and how Irish companies could "add value" to the projects. He also mentioned that Anord was the first Irish company to win a contract for an Olympic project.

Anord are very proud of their involvement in the Lower Lea Valley Cabling tunnel project. We are specifically impressed by the approach to these games which strive towards a more environmental approach leaving East London with a lasting legacy of sustainable development.
