Buckingham, the company overseeing the construction of the roof for Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, is planning to use an offsite manufacturing facility for the project.
According to various reports, the roof will cost £20m (€22.7m/$25.5m) and will feature a ‘Sky Walk’ experience for fans, as a well as a luxury restaurant that will be suspended from the structure.
In results filed last week, Buckingham said it will manufacture a series of cladded cassettes that will hang over the main roof area offsite, before installing them at the stadium next year.
“We have been working with the Spurs construction team for several years on various aspects of this prestigious project and it is very gratifying to secure this contract,” Buckingham said in its results announcement.
“We are commencing offsite manufacture of the roof cassette units that ultimately will be suspended from a cable net structure (constructed by others) early next year.”
Tottenham’s new stadium, which will have a capacity of 61,559, is due to open in time for the start of the 2018-19 season.
