|Construction News report on the delays to Tottenham Hotspurâ€™s Â£850m stadium|
at 11:58 21 Sep 2018
'"Stop what youâ€™re doing!" cries a supervisor, halting the work of a gang of electricians on Tottenham Hotspurâ€™s new Â£850m stadium.
The sudden stop is due to the appearance of workers from an air-conditioning subcontractor, who are carrying a large piece of metallic piping. These AC workers have turned up to finish their installation. The problem is, the electricians were told the AC work had already been completed.
As a result, all the work the electricians had done has to be torn out. This is made all the more frustrating by the fact that completed electrics, carried out on the exact same spot, had already been completely ripped out two weeks earlier for the same reason.
Electricians had worked all weekend to complete their work on this first occasion, only to discover on the Monday that the air-conditioning had not been installed. A fortnight later they think the AC has finally been finished; again they have to rip it out.
This is just one alleged instance of poor co-ordination and communication that sources working on the project have shared with CN to help explain the stadiumâ€™s delay, announced last month.'
CN exclusively reveals allegations that site chaos, confusion and ill-discipline lie behind the delays to Tottenham Hotspurâ€™s Â£850m stadium.
