WATCH: Spurs reveal progress on £800m new stadium

Tottenham Hotspur has released new footage of the building progress being made on the club’s £800m stadium project. 

The footage shows off the new North Stand upper tier, which will be made from more than 200 pieces of steel, weighing a total of 450 tonnes.

On completion, the upper tier will hold 7,000 fans.

Mace was appointed as main contractor for the 61,000-seater stadium project in November 2015, beating Multiplex and Sir Robert McAlpine to the job.

Subcontractors currently on site include concrete frame specialist Morrisroe, steel specialist Severfield and scaffolding specialist GKR Scaffolding.

Last month it emerged that construction costs on the new stadium had ballooned, with an executive at the club appearing to blame part of the increase on Brexit. 

The club is expected to play its home games at Wembley next season as the old White Hart Lane Lane stadium is decommissioned - although the club has yet to confirm this.

Construction News visited the new development earlier this year as part of a special report on access and scaffolding firm GKR Scaffolding.

The club has also unveiled some of the most expensive views that will be available from the new stadium.
