McLaren wins Tottenham’s £45m training academy

Grant Prior 12 years ago

McLaren Construction has been confirmed as main contractor on Tottenham Hotspur FC’s new £45 million Training Academy at Bulls Cross in Enfield, Middlesex.

McLaren has won the contract to construct the main state-of-the-art training centre at the heart of the new complex.

The building will be used by the First team and Academy squads.

McLaren’s site team moved onto the project yesterday to commence the construction of the centre designed by Architect KSS, who are also responsible for the design of the proposed new Tottenham Hotspur stadium, within the Northumberland Development Project.

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.

Preparatory and groundworks on the 67 acre site started last September.

The complex will contain 11 outdoor pitches which are being installed under a separate contract by specialist Hewitt Sportsturf.

Quantity Surveyors, Stace, played a vital role in pre-construction work and Anderson Group have been awarded the main building groundworks and frame packages. Base Contracts will complete the fitting-out works.

McLaren won the main building contract via a two-stage tender process and have been working closely with KSS and Stace.

McLaren Chairman Kevin Taylor said: “We are proud to be partnering with Tottenham Hotspur on this prestigious scheme.  KSS have developed a fantastic design and it will be a premier league project in every sense.

“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 is achieved whilst not compromising the quality of this superb facility.”

Tottenham Hotspur Chairman Daniel Levy said: “The new Training Centre will be the best of its kind in Europe when it is built and will be important for the Club attracting, training and retaining quality players.

“The appointment of contractors for the main building is a key step in the progress of the development and we look forward to McLaren working with us to deliver a world class facility.”

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp said: “This is a massive club and this new facility shows that we are continually looking to move forward and to compete at the highest level.

“It will be terrific when completed. Our players at all levels will thrive in these surroundings.”
