A first-class Olympics?
A quote from Jack Lemley, Olympic Delivery Authority chairman:

"We want to establish a framework where we can go to the market and have a shortlist of qualified contractors who are backed up by engineers and architects.

"That is how we can get the best bargain for the public purse. I don't think we are in a position where we can ask a designer to design the stadium, for example. It takes a year to design then months to build it. We will have to go through a collaborative process."

Another from Denis Oswald, International Olympic Committee Co-ordination Commission chairman:

"The Olympic Park in general and the buildings proposed were a very strong point in London's bid. That had a great deal of influence on the final decision.

"It was a really attractive proposal, with buildings which are technically first-class and also aesthetically advanced."
