Television networks from around the world are moving in and cabling the venues for their cameras. LOCOG’s “look”’ teams are completing the signage and color schemes. Sports equipment is being shipped in.

“We’re still putting in seats at probably 10 or so venues,” Mr. Bulley said. “We’re putting in 1,000 seats a day.”

The “live site” in the Olympic Park — a grassy area where spectators can watch the events on a giant screen and listen to musical entertainment — also is unfinished.

“The bump-in looks quite messy, but you leave this to the last stages,” Mr. Bulley said. “It’s always the last thing you do in getting events ready. We want to work these venues right up to when the athletes are coming in so they look as good as possible.”
