WJ Groundwater has been commissioned to dewater aspects of the iconic new stadium for renowned London football team, Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
This ongoing project is a great addition to our company portfolio that already includes completed dewatering projects for football clubs such as Reading, Derby County, Manchester United, and Chelsea.
The new scheme sees the existing stadium expanded to a new capacity of 61,000 fans, including the largest single tier in the UK (the home southern stand) capable of holding 17,000 people. Its new asymmetrical design is now focused towards the southern ‘home end’ giving the structure a unique look. Amongst many other new features, the re-build also includes a fully retractable pitch (for concerts), prominent new entrances at the front and eastern ends, and a ‘sky walk’ so tourists can climb 40 m for views from the stadium.
