Tottenham Hotspur FC is continuing with its plans for a new 58,000-capacity stadium, and has appointed a local contractor for a foundations and structures package.
Chelmsford-based M Anderson, which also worked on the club’s training ground in Enfield, has picked up the £50M deal, according to Sky Sports News.
It will build the stadium’s foundations and super structure at Northumberland Park, adjacent to White Hart Lane.
A letter sent from Savills to Haringey Council, seen by Sky Sports News, said: “THFC has today entered into a Joint Contracts Tribunal (JCT) Design and Build Contract for the civil engineering ground works, concrete foundations and structure for the new THFC Stadium Project.
“The contract has been made with M Anderson Construction Ltd and the sum for the works is £49.773.727.”
Haringey Council has approved the contract has also granted permission to demolish Fletcher House, a listed building on the site.
Spurs must overcome a High Court challenge from Archway Street Metal Works, the last remaining landowner on the site, before building works can start.
The club will have to find a temporary home for the 2017-18 season while the stadium building work progresses.
