Sykes have completed a substantial and exciting contract as part of on-going Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park legacy transformation works.

A package for the ‘Design and Build’ fit-out of mechanical and electrical services was secured, within the ‘Copper Box’ venue, home of handball, modern pentathlon fencing and goalball during the 2012 games.

The ‘Copper Box’, the 3rd largest sports arena in London has been converted into a Multi-Use Arena to accommodate a wide range of sporting and cultural activities.

The arena will leave a lasting and versatile sporting legacy, containing a gym and studios with changing facilities and a café and crèche for use by the local community.

In order to facilitate the transformation, Sykes were engaged to undertake all of the works to the building services and life safety systems within the arena. This included careful removal of various mechanical and electrical systems and installations, coupled with the modification, diversion and provision of new to suit the revised configuration and usage of spaces throughout.

Our works were carefully sequenced and scheduled to align with an ambitious overall construction programme to allow the earliest completion. The MUA is the first venue on the QEOP to reopen and Sykes & Son are immensely proud to be part of the Olympic story on a significant award-winning venue.
