Mace, Arup team delivers infrastructure for Pan American games

UK firms Mace, Arup and 4global have completed infrastructure work for the Lima 2019 Pan American as part of a deal made by the UK and Peruvian governments.

The UK Delivery Team worked on four clusters of the 22 venues which will be used during the games, including the athletes’ village.

Mace said in press statement that it was in charge of the delivery strategy for permanent infrastructure, and had created an integrated programme management office.

Kate Harrisson, the UK ambassador to Peru, said: "The government-to-government agreement between Peru and the UK ensured the games could be delivered on time, on budget and to the very best in international standards.

"It has enabled us to pilot more innovative methods of contracting and project management which has led to a higher numbers of bidders, lower costs and faster project delivery than is normal in Peru." 

Jason Millett, Mace Consultancy’s chief operating officer, said: "The successful delivery of the Lima 2019 Pan American is a huge milestone for Peru, the Department for International Trade, the UK Delivery Team and Mace.

"This tremendous achievement is the result of two years of hard work by the entire team. It couldn’t have been delivered without the wonderful collaborative culture that has developed on the project and across the supply chain here in Peru."
