The Tottenham Hotspur Training Centre, home to the club’s first team and academy, is recognised as one of the best in Europe. The 77-acre complex includes 11 outdoor pitches, a covered artificial pitch, player preparation areas, hydrotherapy pool, altitude room, specialist sports rehabilitation suites and large-scale gymnasium.

McLaren was responsible for the construction and high specification fit out of the spectacular main training centre at the heart of the complex, as well as work on the main access roads, car park, landscaping and gatehouse.

Designed with environmental protection and sustainability in mind, the building is highly energy efficient with world-class facilities throughout. The transparent ETFE roof over the artificial pitch is made from a material similar to that used in the Eden Project bio-domes. In other parts of the building, a sedum green roof provides an ecological covering capable of capturing and re-harvesting rainwater.

Externally, key features of the local environment are enhanced with restored historic hedgerows and field boundaries, an organic kitchen garden and orchard.
