A Northern Ireland company has won a deal worth an undisclosed sum to work on a new stadium for Tottenham Hotspur.

But RCDS (NI) in Co Londonderry won't be building the stands or erecting seating at the new 61,000 London stadium, which is replacing White Hart Lane.

Instead, it is working on a building information model - using high-end software - of the stadium's pre-cast concrete units.

That model will then be used by the construction companies working on the project, due to be ready for 2018.

Michael Dunbar of RCDS - who founded the company with Stephen O'Hara - said the firm had already started work on the deal.

He said it was currently engaged in modelling the lower tier of the stadium's north stand. Three to four of its 10 members of staff will work on the contract for the next 12 months.

And DUP Mid-Ulster MLA, Ian McCrea, said the deal was "extremely exciting" for the company.

"One can only admire RCDS who only began trading seven years ago and are now able to compete and win such lucrative contracts," he said.

RCDS also worked on the 15,000 capacity Leeds Arena.
