- June 2017
Held for the first time in Peru, the Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games will go way beyond just another sporting event.
Not only do both events unite athletes from all over the world, as the largest Parapan American Games to exist they will serve to encourage people of all ages to celebrate sport, bring much needed investment into the area, provide local people with multiple opportunities and enhance conditions across the city, long after the Games have finished.
The UKDT is providing major programme and event expertise to deliver the infrastructure for this iconic event and, as part of the consortium of UK companies, we are supporting the delivery of the Games through a Government to Government understanding (G2G) for the Department for International Trade (DIT).
Much like the legacy of the UK Olympic Games, which Mace has continued to support since the transformation of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, we are helping to build a sustainable city and create accessibility to the venues so that communities further afield engage with the Games and prosper in the years to come.
The Athletes' Village will be built across 44 hectares and its 92 apartments will house technical staff and 9,000 athletes, which can be used for the population of southern Lima. The modern Athletes' Village will have 1,096 apartments and is one of the most important construction works for Lima 2019. This apartment complex will remain as a legacy for the hardworking district of Villa El Salvador, benefiting over a thousand Peruvian families.
“We owe a great debt to the Mace Lima 2019 team who have shown tremendous commitment to supporting us to achieve our goals from day one. They have really helped our cause and it is a pleasure working with this team. I look forward to a successful Games and I am confident that with the help of the Mace team we will make this happen.”
points of note
The team has been creative in both procurement and delivery support strategies providing an opportunity for the supply chain to think outside the box and provide solutions while bidding.
