Cundall’s Senior Associate, Damien Dungworth, presented at the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on Tuesday 1st May.
The lecture discussed the engineering of the Lee Valley White Water Centre, the only new build venue for this summer’s Olympic Games that is already open to the public.
White water is naturally found in steep upland river systems and recreating this on the flat plan of the Lee Valley required the construction of an artificial, pumped, white water course. In this lecture, Damien spoke about:
- the engineering of the venue, looking at the components of the white water course
- creating the white water and the development of the site masterplan
- the pumping station design and show how lessons learnt from other developments have helped achieve a sustainable legacy
