This online lecture covers the structural design of the award-winning stadium.

The Tottenham Hotspur stadium won the Institution’s ultimate accolade at the 2019 Structural Awards – the Supreme Award for Structural Engineering Excellence.

This lecture will look at the team’s engineering innovation, especially considering the long span elements.

Discover the mechanics of sliding a 70x110m turf pitch under 17,500 people while controlling the structural dynamics.

Learn how the team eliminated 40% of the columns to provide open concourses and hospitality spaces, including a 30m x 20m conference space.


Reasons to watch:

  • Understand some of the key design challenges which were overcome to deliver an award-winning multi-use stadium
  • Gain knowledge on sports venue design and the design of several long span elements
  • Appreciate the structural design aspects which resulted in both the IStructE Long Span Structures award and Supreme Award winner.


Intended for

All engineers with an interest in structural design, including long span design and sports venue design.
