Project: Liverpool Lime Street Gateway
Principal Contractor: Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering
Value: £85,000
Product: Balustrade and handrail

The station is on the ‘Gateway’ to Liverpool City centre and is the focus of two major development schemes designed to reveal the Grade II listed structure and provide a new focus and hub for the city.

The contract consisted of:

  • Stainless steel and glass balustrade
  • Stainless steel handrail
  • Stainless steel balustrade with nylon coated handrail to all stairways
  • Stainless steel handrail to steps
  • Stainless steel armrest to seating areas
  • Granite clad doors to sub station

We worked very closely with both the architect and the main contractor from conception through to completion. Working from the Landscape Architects concept brief our design team brought about workable solutions, developing the designs through CAD modelling and the manufacture of control samples to give a clear picture of the finished product.

Our Project Manager liaised closely with the Main Contractor ensuring that all aspects of the contract from Risk Assessments to Method Statements were prepared for their approvals and that the design, manufacture and installation were delivered within budget and on schedule.

Our multi disciplined teams managed all aspects of the installation from the coring of the steps to the fitting of the stainless and glass balustrade, ensuring that each phase met the client’s expectations.
