Probably the finest stadium on the Planet
The club’s chairman dreamed big, visiting stadiums around the world for inspiration and design ideas. His vision was to create a world class stadium that would also serve the local community, by being a catalyst for regeneration in an area that had been neglected for decades. The completed stadium has been described as a work of art. It is a project that we are extremely proud to have been a part of.
We were appointed to deliver the concrete frame for the main stadium bowl incorporating the bulk excavation, sheet piling, the construction of pile caps and the RC foundations, and basement box. The superstructure involved six number, nine-storey jump form cores, the construction of 112 terraced post tensioned slabs and the installation of 5,000 pre-cast elements to form the terracing to the North, West and East stands.
The construction of the stadium was extremely challenging but highly successful project for Morrisroe. We delivered high-quality, award-winning concrete finishes in a ‘live’ situation and to a timetable that could not afford to slip. At the peak of our works we managed a workforce of over 500 people working 24 hours a day over three shifts. A significant milestone for us on this project was the 1.5 million man hours RIDDOR free.
“The logistics of the project were like nothing I had ever seen in my career – it was incredible”. Mark Reynolds MACE
The completion of Tottenham was a momentous achievement for the project team. Our work received formal recognition at the 2017 Post Tensioning Association Annual Award where we were awarded Best National Project for a concrete structure. We were also awarded, along with the project’s structural engineers Buro Happold, the IStructE Project of the Year in 2019, and were Project of the Year runners up at the Concrete Society annual awards.
