Spurs confirm McLaren to kick-start new stadium development
Tottenham Hotspur has confirmed McLaren Construction has been appointed as main contractor to build a new supermarket and commercial/educational space to the north of its proposed new stadium.
McLaren Construction was previously employed by Spurs to build the club’s new state-of-the-art training centre in Enfield.
Spurs had previously been inolved in a High Court battle with West Ham over the future use of the Olympic Stadium. It is not among the four bidders, including West Ham, waiting to hear next month who will become permanent tenants at the stadium.
Paul Phillips, project director said, “We look forward to working with McLaren Construction, who have been a good partner during the construction of our new training centre.
“By appointing McLaren, we shall again be able to ensure that the new supermarket development is delivered in line with a strict contractor code of conduct similar to that which was employed in Enfield, and that our construction partners will take a responsible and sensitive approach to building within our community.”
Kevin Taylor, chairman, McLaren Group said, “After the successful completion of the club’s training centre, we are very proud to be awarded the contract for phase 1 of the development of the club’s existing site. This award is testament to the strong partnership between McLaren and Tottenham Hotspur, and we look forward to continuing to build this relationship for the future.”
The new supermarket, which will be one of the largest of its kind in London, is 12,000 sq m with a sales floor area of 6,700 sq m and will be operated by Sainsbury’s.
This phase of the development also includes 10,200 sq mof commercial/educational space above the supermarket.
Work will commence on this development later this month.
