James Bulley in Olympic StadiumMay 2 - A group of leading executives responsible for the success of London 2012 have launched a new international consultancy firm to help advise organisations on major projects.

The new firm, called Trivandi, will be led by James Bulley (pictured), director of venues and infrastructures at London 2012.

He will be joined by three former colleagues at London 2012.

They are Paul May, who was head of venue development, Guy Lodge, head of overally, and Jonathan Branson, head of Olympic Park operations.

The company plans to offer strategic advice as well as aiding delivery capabilities, and will be particularly focused on the logistics of joining up construction programmes with the operational requirements of major event venues.

"The combined skills and experience of the Trivandi team is what makes us special," said Bulley, whose contract with London 2012 officially ended on Tuesday (April 30).

"London's Olympic and Paralympic Games' venues were spectacular and we wanted to bottle that success and roll it out to major projects across the UK and around the world.

"So we brought together a team with the capability, contacts and know-how to build on the successful delivery of London 2012 and provide a world class service to our clients."

Trivandi has already been employed by the London Legacy Development Corporation to provide project assurance services on the event preparations for the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Summer Event Series, which includes a series of concerts, as well as the Sainsbury's London Anniversary Games in the Olympic Stadium.

The company's name comes from "Tri"- the three areas of consulting services, strategic consulting, project management and project assurance - and "vandi" which is the abbreviation of "venues and infrastructure"

"I am delighted to see the formation of Trivandi, which is a direct legacy of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games, creating new business opportunities whilst showcasing UK knowledge and expertise around the world in successful major project delivery," said Paul Deighton, former chief executive of London 2012.
