Tender race for Spurs £400m stadium


Tender race for Spurs £400m stadium


The first phase of the new stadium was carried out McLaren Construction earlier this year.


The construction firm McLaren is likely to form a joint venture with Spanish giant FCC to bid for the main stage of the stadium build.


It is believed that amongst other bidders for the stadium contract are McAlpine, O’Rourke and BAM.


The football club is currently awaiting a Government’s decision for a Compulsory Purchasing Order (CPO) for remaining land on the site.


According to Tottenham Hotspur, the scheme “ is a major development that will present ongoing challenges and subject to these challenges being manageable we anticipate going out to tender for construction late this year which will make a stadium opening date of Summer 2017 feasible.”


Spurs chairman, Daniel Levy, said: “The new stadium is a landmark project, of importance not just for our Club , but to the regeneration of an area which has been our home for more than 132 years and to London as a whole.


“It will be a key regenerative component of the local economy and a significant tourist attraction in its own right.


“To anyone visiting Tottenham today, our commitment to delivering the new stadium project and associated regeneration is clear for all to see – Phase 1 is built, the Club-sponsored Tottenham University Technical College is due to open this Summer, 447 jobs have been delivered to date and some 9 acres have been cleared in readiness for the stadium development.


“We eagerly await the outcome of the CPO decision by the Department of Communities and Local Government.”
