Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium bags critical steelwork from Yorkshire engineers
The William Cook engineering group has played a central role in the construction of Tottenham Hotspur’s new White Hart Lane ground.
The Sheffield-based company has supplied critical structural steelwork including castings, which help to support the roof of the 62,000-seat arena - a new sports and entertainment hub for North London.
They were manufactured at William Cook’s newly-modernised plant in Sheffield. The engineering group worked with architects Schlaich Bergermann and contractors Severfield plc to design the unique architectural structure.
Mr William Cook, group commercial director, said: “Spurs have succeeded in delivering a world-class landmark for Tottenham and London and we were proud to help them achieve their ambition.
“This was a technically challenging project but football fans, visitors and the wider community will be delighted with the results.”
The William Cook group has worked on numerous landmarks including Heathrow Terminal 5, Wimbledon Centre Court, the Thames Millennium Bridge and the Natural History Museum.
Recent international projects include the design of a prototype steel support for a flagship new viaduct for the Paris Metro system.
