Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games Project summary
Department for International Trade
- Start date
- June 2017
The Games are bringing valuable investment into Lima, and the way the construction sector positively responded to our innovative contracting approach has given Peru confidence that its US$160billion infrastructure gap can be closed.
As well as the economic benefits, the Games also generated huge social value. Communities across the whole of Peru, and Lima in particular, celebrate the Games as an opportunity to inspire, with the venues seen as a way for people to use sport to enhance their lives for years to come. A fantastic example of this is the brand new Athletes’ Village, consisting of 1,100 apartments, which will become much needed housing for thousands of families in the hardworking district of Villa El Salvador.
The legacy potential of the Lima 2019 Games is vast and Mace is proud to have played a part in ensuring long-lasting benefits. We worked as part of a UK Delivery Team – which was set up by the UK Department for International Trade as part of a Government to Government (G2G) agreement with Peru – focusing on developing and executing the overarching delivery strategy for the core permanent venue infrastructure, establishing and implementing an integrated programme management office function, and supporting the delivery of key venues.
“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 has been a pleasure working with this team. ”
points of note
The team was creative in developing innovative procurement and delivery support strategies, which gave the Peruvian supply chain a chance to think outside the box and provide their own innovative solutions.
