This transformational regeneration masterplan for about 300 homes in these historic streets in Liverpool is “breathing new life into the area and give it a long-term sustainable future” according to Joe Anderson, Liverpool Mayor (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/40370673).

These houses were built and lived in by Welsh workers in the late 19th Century, however have been left vacant for over 10 years leaving them in various states of repair. We have been working closely with the client, architects MCAU and landscape architects BDP to create a new and vibrant residential community. Our hands on, pragmatic approach to the restoration works has involved extensive alterations to the buildings, implemented to make them suitable for modern day living. Externally, the site wide drainage strategy has enhanced the network and incorporate SUDS within the civils infrastructure.

“Green streets”, communal gardens and improved highways enhance the sense of place. A small percentage of the masterplan will incorporate new build homes using light gauge steel construction.
