The contract for the initial stages of the construction have been signed, clearing the way for building work to commence
Tottenham Hotspur have reached another milestone in the construction of their new stadium, signing a £50m deal with engineering company M Anderson Construction.
Tottenham employed M Anderson to build their recently completed training ground in Enfield and clearly liked the work they did, handing them the massive sum to begin work on the foundations and super-structure of their new stadium.
Sky Sports report that the proposal sent to Haringey Council giving the engineering company the contract for £49,773,727 has been accepted, and the council have also given permission for the demolition of Fletcher House, a listed building on the Northumberland Park site.
These developments come as a rare positive development in Spurs’ battle to build their new ground, following news that they must go to the High Court to contest Archway Sheet Metals Ltd.’s appeal against a compulsory purchase order.
It is this legal obstacle which will now force Tottenham to spend a season playing at another ground, with Sky also reporting they are considering Upton Park and Stadium:MK as possible temporary homes for the 2017/18 campaign.
