Welcome to the second issue of our redesigned magazine. I have taken over the hot seat from David Baron, our previous editor, having sub edited the magazine for longer than I would like to admit. I would like to thank David for his hard work and commitment to the magazine over the the last 20 years. I will endeavour to keep you updated with an eclectic mix of interesting, informative and delightful projects from the world of galvanizing.
Our special 2012 Olympic Games issue features projects both large and small that will play an important role within the Games. The curvaceous Velodrome takes design of its type to new heights, emphasising the pursuit of efficiency, lightweight construction and high performance standards. The Olympic Park has not only transformed an area that used to be an industrial wasteland into one that will host many of the sporting venues but will in Legacy, contribute to connecting and creating communities across the area.
Smaller scale projects that may not immediately grab the headlines have had an important role to play. The rerouting of overhead power lines to underground tunnels was critical to the functioning
of the Olympic site.
For digital readers, don‘t forget our magazine is available on the Apple app store.
