Architect: Liverpool 2020
Client: Liverpool City Council
Contractor: Pierse Contracting Limited
The project was part of the rennovation of the retail area, as part of the City of Culture Regeneration Programme.
To replace all existing footways with a range of products selected on the basis of whole life costs and value engineering. The products also had to satisfy strict criteria relating to aesthetics, functionality and practicality and be delivered in a relatively short period of time.
Despite a very challenging delivery programme of just 6 months, Aggregate Industries rose to the challenge by providing 20,000 m2 of Mid and Dark Grey Granite paving, delivered via containers over a period of 7 weeks. Working closely with both the landscape architect and landscaping contractor to ensure each part of their key performance criteria were fulfilled, the final Aggregate Industries solution, one of the companys largest to date, has proved so successful that it has subsequently been nominated for a Public Realm Landscaping award.
Aggregate Industries has played a major part in the regeneration of Liverpool, also working on a number of other city projects including Edge Lane and Hope Street which links the citys two cathedrals.
Guy Priestley, Contracts Manager, Pierse Contracting said: Aggregate Industries, as a supply partner to Liverpool City Council, has performed well to deliver materials to a tight lead in period and to an excellent quality standard. The quantities involved in the scheme were vast and Aggregate Industries has managed the contract to the benefit of the project. The materials really have rejuvenated this area of the city.
