Iconic Stadium Development Protected By Blueshield PmB

The Northumberland Development Project is a mixed-use development project that centres on the building of the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to replace White Hart Lane as the home ground of Tottenham Hotspur. The stadium has a planned capacity for 62,062 spectators, and is designed to host football as well as NFL games.

The development plans also include 579 new homes, a 180-room hotel, a local community health centre, the "Tottenham Experience" – a Spurs museum and club shop.

 

The Northumberland Development Project is intended to be the catalyst for a 20-year regeneration program planned by the Haringey Council to spur on growth and wider changes in Tottenham.

Mark Blackburn, Divisional Manager of USL StructureCare said “We are proud of our successful involvement in the New Northumberland Development Project or Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.

 

Our contracting team has delivered first class installation of our Blueshield PmB spray applied waterproofing system, tied to high movement capacity Migupren joints to ensure complete watertight integrity at podium level. Following installation at podium level, working for concrete installer AJ Morrisroe, we were subsequently employed by Landscaping package contractor, Carey, to install the surface movement joints.

 

The chosen Migutrans range complimented the paving design, tied perfectly with the total waterproofing and joint system below and offered Tottenham assurance of ‘single point’ responsibility for product and installation through our parent company.”
