Jackson was included on the ODA’s Civil Engineering works framework, and carried out several enabling projects for the Olympic Games.

These included earthworks and foundations for both the warm-up track and the Waterpolo Arena in the Olympic Park at Stratford, the construction of a pedestrian footbridge at the rowing venue at Eton Dorney, and the provision of several ‘Park and Ride’ facilities across the country.

The project we’re most proud of however, is the floating walkway we constructed across Royal Victoria Dock to provide access for spectators to the ExCel Exhibition Centre. The walkway was made from floating shipping containers, linked together and anchored to the dock bed - it was one of our more unconventional designs, but the end product looked the business.
