Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, more commonly known as ‘Tottenham’ or simply, ‘Spurs’, was formed in 1882 and is a club steeped in history. Since April 2019, the team has played its home matches in the 62,850-capacity new stadium, which replaced their former home of White Hart Lane which had been demolished to make way for the new venue in the same location.
Working with main contractor, Mace, design agency, Populous and consulting closely with the end client themselves, we were responsible for delivering the signage package at this very prestigious venue. This was a high-octane project, with the challenges well documented in the press and our team demonstrating we had the capabilities to deliver across the multiple site-packages.
Mega projects of this scale require people and organisations with very different cultures and skill sets to come together to achieve objectives. For much of the time we will and should work quite independently in our own areas of expertise. However, at key points in the process, different components must come together, and individuals must work in a collaborative way, whether it be physically on-site, visually when working on designs, or financially to achieve target pricing. All parties need to work as a team and depend on each other to successfully deliver a common goal.
The project was completed in a flurry of activity as the project team rallied to completion before the showcase opening of the Super Stadium in April 2019, with our dynamic and anodized digital signage directing fans within their new surroundings.
We were uniquely placed to deliver packages well beyond the scope of typical signage, working across the contractor base. We acted on an advisory basis offering a true end to end solution with a huge scope of products, saving the client time and taking out costs which would have been incurred dealing with multiple sub-contractors.
Having previously worked with main contractor Mace, we had proven that we had the scale and pace to handle a project of this magnitude and were the best partner to deliver the range of products, on time and to budget.
We are described as a Construction Integrator for Signage, working with the Construction Manager, Architect, Audio Visual Team, Wayfinding Designers and the Creative Interior Designers to ensure a consistent approach was applied across the project. The project duration over a year and a half involved many different components from bespoke digital signage to traditional analogue wayfinding signs. Many packages were delivered on a fast-track programme with thousands of individual signage elements such as door plates and row numbers in their thousands manufactured and installed in a matter of weeks to achieve launch deadlines.
