This 1970’s building has a part listed façade and is located in the heart of Liverpool’s commercial centre and conservation area on Dale Street. Our works included the strip out of the existing office space on four floors and part demolition to the rear of the façade to allow new curtain walling. The existing office space was extensively refurbished to provide 136 fully fitted out studio apartments. Some of the construction methods employed in this fast track program were the use of offsite constructed bathroom PODS and kitchens, which are were craned in through the rear of the building.
Throughout construction CPUK worked within the constraints of a busy city centre in close proximity to Moorfields Train Station, offices, hotels and businesses. In particular the continued liaison with National NHS Blood & Transplant Liverpool Donor Centre which is located on the ground floor of our development. This continued to operate throughout the construction period.
Due to the confines of the site there were many logistical difficulties associated in the construction of the project and these were successfully managed. Storage space was very limited and therefore throughout the project we ensured that deliveries of materials were fully co-ordinated to meet both programme requirements and the requirements of our neighbours.
Directly under our site are two underground lines, close liaison has been maintained with Mersey Rail throughout the project advising them of what works are being undertaken at any given time to ensure that there is no disruption to their passengers and the service they provide.
