Polypipe, the UK’s largest plastic piping systems manufacturer, is exhibiting at an exhibition designed to showcase the very best work from the companies that helped to create London 2012 stadia and infrastructure.
Taking place from 9th July – 15th August at the Building Centre in central London, ‘We Made 2012’ will give those tasked with delivering the ambitious plans of LOCOG the opportunity to share their stories, discuss challenges and how they were overcome, and evaluate the legacy of the Games in the capital and beyond.
Polypipe supplied a number of product systems for a variety of applications across the Olympic build, including six different systems for the Athletes Village alone. Polypipe’s Terrain Fuze HDPE Drainage system was used extensively on the Athletes Village, and several of its products, including its Firetrap sleeves and Rainstream pre-tank filters, were developed in order to meet the specific needs of a number of other areas across the Olympic Park.
Adam Turk, Commercial Director for Polypipe Terrain, said: “As a proud UK manufacturer we were delighted to see our products selected and widely used in such a successful home Games. London 2012 was not only a sporting success, but also a triumph for British manufacturing and construction and we are delighted to share the story of Polypipe’s contribution through ’We Made 2012’.”
Polypipe’s contribution to London 2012 has previously been recognised by the ODA’s ‘Learning Legacy: Lessons Learned from the London 2012 Games Construction’ report, and as part of the Plastics for Gold Exhibition at the Museum of Design in Plastics (MoDiP), which formed part of the Cultural Olympiad, celebrating plastic’s contribution.
