London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Athletes’ Village (DTS 150)

Case Study
DTS stair connectors were developed as a direct result of our role in the construction of the Athletes’ Village, London 2012.

We were asked to produce an alternative to the large stainless steel angles specified to support the glazed bridges connecting the 8/9 storey accommodation blocks. The problems with these were cost, practicality, appearance, the distance spanned and the need to work outside the building line.

TSS telescopic connectors allowed precasting to continue off-site whilst the blocks were being constructed. Recesses left in the slab edges accepted the sliding connectors and the precast decks fitted perfectly every time.
