Lime Street

The Lime St Regeneration Project is a major development in the heart of Liverpool. The project is relevant because it is a City Centre project on a previously developed site with the potential for unknown, un-chartered tunnels beneath the building footprint.

Sutcliffe have been involved in this scheme from inception and have carried out numerous surveys to get the design process moving.

We carried out a number of VE workshops with the Client and Preferred Contractor and, after assessing several design options including reinforced concrete, steel and timber, the decision was made to proceed with a steel frame on the basis of speed of construction which was a major driver on this project.
