Graham Construction has been appointed to deliver the 383-unit Build to Rent (BtR) scheme on The Strand.
Designed by Leach Rhodes Walker architects, the 16-storey project will include a private gym and roof terrace, alongside 1,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial office space. The current building on the site – the four-storey Strand House – will be demolished at the end of this month.
The project will be built around a concrete frame structure, with off-site podded bathrooms and system façade designed to withstand inclement riverside weather conditions.
Graham was selected to build the development by Patten Properties and Panacea Property Development, the joint venture (JV) behind the scheme. Forward funding has been provided by global real estate investment manager Invesco Real Estate.
Gary Hughes, Graham’s regional director, said: “This is a high quality residential development specifically designed to grace the Liverpool waterfront and we are proud to have been selected as preferred contractor to make it a reality.
“Panacea saw great value in involving Graham at the pre-construction stage, trusting us to advise on design development, the most effective and efficient construction methodologies, site logistics and supply chain solutions.”
Neil Patten, Managing Director of Patten Properties and Panacea Property Development, said: “The development we have designed within the city’s historic waterfront will set a new standard for residential accommodation in Liverpool. We look forward to delivering the scheme with our chosen contractor, Graham Construction, alongside our professional team including Leach Rhodes Walker, Capita and Curtins.”
The development is scheduled for completion in 2020.
