Lee McDonagh – The LOCOG vision for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games


The LOCOG vision for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was to ‘inspire a generation’. This was interpreted into a vision by the ODA ‘to deliver an Olympic Park and all the venues on time, within an agreed budget and to specification, minimising the call on public funds and providing for a sustainable legacy’. Now working on the Legacy project transforming the Olympic Park into Queen Elizabeth Park, Lee McDonagh, Associate Director at Mace looks at how Mace is carrying this vision forward, the impact to the project is having on Stratford and East London as well as how the project has challenged and changed the perceptions of UK construction industry; its ability to deliver, successfully, large scale international infrastructure projects.

Lee has over 20 years of experience in the construction industry working on projects as diverse as the widening of the M25, the construction of a Jubilee Line station, the extension of an airport terminal and the delivery on the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. His responsibilities has included roles as a site engineer, structural engineer and planner and he is currently leading the project controls team for the London Legacy Development Committee where Mace is leading the legacy transformation of the Olympic Park into the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
