King’s Park, Liverpool
Bramall Construction Limited
A £20M redevelopment of 3 1960’s tower blocks in North Liverpool.
The challenge was one of how to economically refurbish the three tower blocks to meet current standards; current Building Regulations, Eco Homes and Lifetime Homes Standards.
The economic solution adopted was one of increasing the total number of flats and thus decreasing the construction cost per unit. This was achieved by the construction of new build extensions, in ‘lightweight’ steel structure, that were positioned either side of the existing towers and across the top thus adding an additional three storeys to the height of each tower block.
