Now that we have all gushed over the various Olympic venues, it might be worth sparing a moment to consider the planning and effort that went into building them.

Fortunately, the usually subscription only Institute of Civil Engineering have put out a number of free papers explaining the venues from a construction perspective.

Happy reading!

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
