Spurs pick McLaren for phase one of new stadium

19 Sep 12 McLaren Construction has been appointed for the first stage of Tottenham Hotspur FC’s new proposed stadium.

As the first phase of the overall new stadium project, McLaren will build a new Sainsbury’s supermarket to the north of the proposed new ground, together with 110,000 sq ft of commercial/educational space above it.

The new Sainsbury’s will be one of the largest in London at 130, 000 sq ft, with a sales floor area of 72,000 sq ft.

Work will start on this development later this month with completion expected by the end of 2013 or early 2014.

McLaren and Spurs have history together. The contractor built the club’s training centre in Enfield.

Project director Paul Phillips 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.”

McLaren Group chairman Kevin Taylor 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."
