ODA joins LOCOG at premises overlooking Olympic site.

Sebastian Coe and his colleagues at the London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and the Olympic Delivery Authority have moved to new offices in Canary Wharf.

LOCOG, the organisation responsible for managing and staging the Games, and the ODA, which will deliver the permanent venues and infrastructure projects associated with London 2012, will work side by side at One, Churchill Place. The 100-strong team will be able to view the sites being developed for the Games from the office windows.

Chairman of LOCOG Sebastian Coe said that 2006 would be a very exciting year, and that is was essential that the two organisations maintain the momentum that has gathered since the bid was won last July.

Paul Deighton, the recently appointed chief executive of LOCOG, said: “2006 will be a busy year for us with preparatory work happening at the Olympic Park site, awarding contracts for work and seeking our first major sponsors.”
