Winning
the bid to host the 2012 Olympic Games, London was faced with a
significant task. London had to turn an uninhabited, wasteland into a
stadium. The stadium could not be designed to support any one sport
such as track, rugby or soccer. The stadium required 80,000 seats,
25,000 permanent and 55,000 temporaries. The stadium also had to be
designed to host a myriad of athletics which make up the Olympic games.
Therefore, London was challenged with the Iron Triangle, also known as the Triple Constraint, which are scope, time and cost (Meredith, Mantel, & Shafer, 2017).

SCOPE

The scope was not necessarily to build an infrastructure to host the
2012 Olympics with 80,000 seats. The scope was to design and construct a
long-term infrastructure with 25,000 permanent seats and 55,000
temporary seats so the building can be adapted to host the 2012 Olympic
games but remain standing and occupied long thereafter (Tramantano, et
al., 2015).

TIME

London won the bid in 2006 and had to have it completed in mid-2011,
less than 5 years to complete, with groundbreaking construction
beginning in 2008.

COST

London allocated £537 million for the project which came in £51 million under budget.

The direct goal was to have a permanent venue in place for longevity
which could also be adapted to host the Olympics. Ancillary goals were
to clean the waste in which the venue would be built, build
infrastructure around the stadium such as roads, railways and businesses
and have the venue occupied after the Olympics to pay back some of the
money spent on the venue.

The Stadium had a stretched-J project life cycle. Much like the cake
example provided by Meredith, et al. (2017) in the text. Once the
stadium took form and was completed, the life cycle concluded, there
were no needs for the life cycle to tamper off.
