McLaren Construction has been named main contractor to build Tottenham Hotspur FC’s new £45 million Training Academy at Bulls Cross in Enfield, Middlesex.
The contract, worth around £24 million to McLaren, will cover construction of the main training centre at the new complex designed by Architect KSS, who are also responsible for the design of the proposed new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, within the Northumberland development project.
The building will be used by the first team and academy squads.
The main training centre building is designed around a 70m x 50m indoor artificial pitch and also contains a hydrotherapy/swimming pool, fitness centre/gym, changing rooms, medical facilities, canteen and media centre.
The complex will contain 11 outdoor pitches which are being installed under a separate contract by specialist Hewitt Sportsturf.
McLaren won the main building contract via a two-stage tender process and have been working closely with KSS and quantity surveyors Stace. Base Contracts will complete the fitting-out works.
McLaren chairman Kevin Taylor said: “Following a rigorous selection process we are pleased to be appointed and have now been involved with the academy for over a year during which time we worked closely with Tottenham and the design team to ensure maximum efficiency.”
