Sustainability was a criterion for ODA design and the sustainability team were engaged with or providing guidance to teams for the final design processes. Complete LOCOG incorporated sustainability requirements in the tender for their architects, engineering services and planning consultants to ensure they do this. Five members of the LOCOG Sustainability Team are embedded in the Venues Team to ensure that sustainability is integrated into design and operation of venues. They have also developed a Venues Sustainability Strategy; Health, Safety and Sustainability Standard; and Sustainable Design Requirements. LOCOG have developing the LOCOG Overlay and Access File (LOAF) for Inclusive Design. Complete. This did not appear to be the case for the Orbit but this has now had sustainability criteria applied to it. The LLDC intend to have specialist sustainability expertise within the design/commission process, both in its structuring and evaluation. They appointed sustainability consultants to help produce a new sustainability strategy and still need to ensure that sustainability is factored into all design and that sufficient resources are in place to enable this to be implemented. They have announced the intention to have a quality review panel which will include sustainability expertise. Progress Made

Sustainability is a criteria for ODA design and the sustainability team are engaged with or providing guidance to teams for the final design processes. Complete LOCOG incorporated sustainability requirements in the tender for their architects, engineering services and planning consultants to ensure they do this. Two members of the LOCOG Sustainability Team are embedded in the Venues Team to ensure that sustainability is integrated into design. They have also developed a Venues Sustainability Strategy, Health, Safety and Sustainability Standard and Sustainable Design Requirements. LOCOG are also developing the LOCOG Overlay and Access File (LOAF) for Inclusive Design. Progress Made The OPLC intend to have specialist sustainability expertise within the design/commission process, both in its structuring and evaluation. They have appointed new sustainability consultants to produce a new sustainability strategy and will need to ensure that sustainability is factored into all design and that sufficient resources are in place to enable this to be implemented.
