Emergency Olympic leasing

Posted by Michael Ward on
We were asked to help arrange a lease to house 2,500 troops and their equipment at Tobacco Dock Wapping Venue for the London Olympics. 

The client 

Tobacco Dock Venue Limited 

The work 

Due to circumstances at the time, we were approached at short notice to make arrangements for the housing of 2,500 troops and their equipment for the duration of the 2012 London Olympics. The accommodation and storage required was to provide a base and temporary accommodation to facilitate the Ministry of Defence's provision of security for the event.


 Negotiations were carried out with the in-house legal team from the MoD over the lease and its requirements.  The lease was successfully completed within a week of being instructed.
