Tottenham stadium costs continue to spiral
12 Replies
Electricians on the Spurs stadium site are earning £400 a day as the job approaches its opening deadline.
The Construction Enquirer understands around 500 mechanical and electrical workers are currently on the site on the heavily delayed project.

One industry source said: “They are paying big money at Spurs because everyone knows the job is working to a deadline.
“They are piling people in there and paying top dollar which is having a knock-on effect on other sites around London which are struggling to fill vacancies.”
The current hourly pay rate for a skilled electrician in London working under the JIB agreement is just over £20 an hour or £160 for an average day.

The cost of the project is projected to be £850m, although continuing spiralling costs could see it breach the £1bn.
More than 2,500 workers are currently on the site where construction continues around the clock to get the stadium finished for the new football season.
Spurs are planning to hold the first stadium test events in August and their initial Premier League fixtures away from home with the new 62,000-seater ground ready for September matches.


Wow! Tiny Totts' certainly beat Arsenal FC hands down with this one-upmanship.

2018 - £850m for a 62,000-seater Chicken Henhouse, although continuing spiralling costs could see it breach the £1bn.

2007 - £390m to £420m 60,000-seater Emirates

They should hired Arsene Wenger on how to control costs and yet managed to keep them in Top-4 for the next 10 years.

Tiny Totts have one distinct advantage over Arsenal FC in debt management:

The spiraling TV Broadcasting revenues and matchday revenues amount to £150m to £200m per annum gross meant that Tiny Totts can easily paid off their loan within 20 years.

Wonder if any arsenal fans will bury some shrine to bring them bad luck like they did to us.

I think the sparks should hold out for more money, after all the players are getting 10K a day and are no use to anyone

- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.
