Northern Ireland-based Rapid International recently supplied the Transbatch batching plant to Tarmac for on-site production of readymix concrete for the construction of Tottenham Hotspurs’ new 61,000-seat football stadium. The stadium, scheduled for completion ahead of the 2018/19 season, is part of the larger Northumberland development project, which includes new homes, a supermarket, a primary school, a public square, a university technical college and new administration buildings for the football club. Mace is managing the project and has brought in Tarmac as concrete subcontractor for the scheme.
Tarmac selected the Rapid Transbatch for its high output and its mobility. The project calls for concrete outputs of 80m3 per hour; the Transbatch can manage up to 100m3 per hour.
Tarmac readymix business manager Steve Hyde said: “The football club was very interested in the ultra-mobile concept as the batching plant has to move to a different location mid project. They needed, however, to meet the 80m3 per hour requirements of their contractors.”
