Trelawny at the 'Hart' of new stadium
January 19, 2018
As one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of surface preparation equipment, Trelawny SPT Ltd are fortunate to be involved with some of the world’s most prestigious construction projects. Most recently, Trelawny found themselves on the site of the new White Hart Lane stadium, home to English Premier League football team Tottenham Hotspur.
As well as a complete stadium redesign, the aim of this immense renovation project is to increase the stadium’s capacity from 36,284 to 61,000 which would see it become the third largest capacity stadium in the country. The estimated £400 million project is due to be completed before August in time for the start of the 18/19 Premier League season.
As part of the project, there are 9 concrete drainage channels measuring approximately 370mm wide, running from the outside of the stadium passing directly underneath the pitch to the other side. The total length of these channels will measure approximately to 3,500m (2 miles). These channels need a further application of concrete.
This is where Trelawny come in.
Trelawny were called in by one of the main sub-contractors for the project to provide a solution for the preparation prior to the application of the new concrete.
Our solution? The TFP200.
The TFP200 scarifier is equipped with a rigid steel chassis to ensure strength; stability and accuracy, making it the perfect machine to effectively prepare the channels. The specified model powered by a Honda petrol engine requiring no cables, is ideally suited to the outside job. It is also equipped with a standard dust port which is perfectly partnered with the A22 dust collector vacuum making it dust free, therefore eliminating associated health risks whilst reducing clean up time.
Trelawny’s technical sales team attended site to offer training and guidance in how to use the TFP200 correctly to remove the top layer of concrete and produce a suitable profile to successfully bind the additional concrete.
After completing the task, the TFP200 left the channels with a well prepared, correctly profiled finish of Premier League quality.
