The Aquatics Team, seen here, have worked closely together to deliver the spectacular legacy venue designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, for which Heverin has led the design on the London Aquatic Centre since 2005. Baghdad-born Hadid trained in London and founded her internationally-renowned practice in 1980. Fraser, the Balfour Beatty project director, draws on forty-five years of experience in the construction industry while Arup project director, King’s professional focus on long-span structures began with the Olympic Aquatic Centre in his native Sydney.
