Islands build bridges through sport

In the spirit of the Olympics, the Indian Ocean Island Games were created to foster regional co-operation through the development of sport, as well as build friendship and mutual understanding between the peoples of the islands of the Indian Ocean.

Mauritius, host of the 2019 Indian Ocean Island Games, aims to secure a further legacy of elite and grassroots sport development through the construction of a multisports complex consisting of a 15,000-seater stadium with football pitch and athletics track, aquatic centre and gymnasium.

After its completion, the complex at Cote d’Or will not only be the centre of sporting activity in Mauritius but a flagship for sporting achievement and training across East Africa and the Indian Ocean.

Besides hosting future competitions and championships, the facility will be the focus of extensive outreach programmes designed to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to get involved in sport and adopt healthy lifestyles.

As lead consultant on the project, we are responsible for all engineering design services, project, programme and commercial management, and construction supervision.

To deliver the project, we formed the IOG Infraworks JV with Ruben Reddy Architects and subcontracted engineering consulting and quantity surveyor services to local firms LUX and MLC respectively.

An accelerated programme had to be planned and implemented to meet the tight schedule. When the initial cost estimate exceeded the client’s budget, our integrated team employed value engineering to make the project affordable, drawing on the expertise available through Mott MacDonald’s global network by consulting colleagues in the UK, India and South Africa.
