Olympicopolis – London

PlusValue was commissioned by an international urban regeneration specialist (the Client) to develop recommendations for maximising the potential social, economic, cultural, and environmental impacts that could be generated on a multi-use (recreation, sport, business, retail) site in London.

Our Added Value

To develop recommendations for our Client, we designed a bespoke impact framework for the project. Guided by our impact framework and in consultation with our Client, we organised an expert workshop by mobilising our network of thought-leaders in the field to explore and co-create innovative impact-generating recommendations. We tested and refined these recommendations through targeted desk research, expert feedback, and comparative benchmarking analysis of state-of-the-art case studies from around the world.


We developed an innovative portfolio of impact-generating recommendations for our Client based on the core concept of Holistic Place-Making, and the 3 core themes of:

  1. Connecting Spaces and Communities
  2. Stakeholder Engagement
  3. Impact Measurement and Open Data

For each of the key recommendations in our portfolio, we specified:

  • The impact story – what impact are we trying to have here and why
  • The approach and actions – how can we create this impact in practice
  • The impact dimensions that could be addressed within our impact framework – what types of impact could this action make
  • The estimated potential impacts that could be generated – how much impact could this action have

Our full report was given to the Client in February 2016.
