CBRE Instructed on Royal Liver Building
CBRE’s Liverpool Building Consultancy team has been instructed on behalf of the owners, Royal London, to carry out an external repair and restoration programme of works on the Grade I listed Royal Liver Building in Liverpool.
The Royal Liver Building is a Grade I listed building located at the Pier Head and, along with the Cunard Building and Port of Liverpool Building, forms one of Liverpool's Three Graces lining the city's popular waterfront. In addition to its existing role as managing agent of the building, CBRE has been appointed to project manage a restoration project which will involve the external repair and restoration of the four main domes and eight smaller domes and will include refurbishment and overhauling of the two spiral staircases and replacement of the timber speaker housing in the west tower.
CBRE has appointed North West based Quadriga Contracts Ltd, a specialist external repair company with a strong track record in working at height and in exposed/prominent locations, to carry out the works. Quadriga have appointed a well-established local scaffolding firm who have recently been scaffolding the Blackpool Tower as part of an extensive repair scheme.
The works have now commenced and will be focused on restoration to the north west cupola. The works will re-commence in the New Year, with progression of the programme which is scheduled for completion in late spring/early summer 2015.
Peter Rigby, Building Surveyor at CBRE’s Liverpool office, commented;
“This is an exciting and rare opportunity to restore and enhance one of the North West’s most iconic buildings which occupies a prominent position on the waterfront in Liverpool. The sensitive restoration works will ensure that this important landmark stands the test of time and we are looking forward to seeing the work progressing over the forthcoming weeks.”
