The Athletes Village provided accommodation for 17,000 athletes, officials and those associated with the Games. In September 2012, the area was transformed into a community of over 2,800 homes, providing a legacy for East London.

Pyramid Builders Ltd worked on the site for 3 years, constructing blockwork walls on 16 of the blocks within the Athletes Village. On Block N26, itself containing 10 individual residential buildings, an external architectural Lignacite block (coloured and clear glass) was used as a facade.

Pyramid Builders Ltd were able to recruit operatives from within the surrounding area of Stratford to ensure the local workforce were engaged and felt part of this high-profile project, the largest in the country at the time.
