Main contractor ULCCo Special Projects is set to begin work on constructing O’Donnell + Tuomey Architects’ competition-winning design later this season.
ULCCo Special Projects is a subsidiary of the University of Liverpool.
The three-storey extension to the University of Liverpool School of Architecture was the subject of an international design competition in 2019. At that time, the project was set to cost £23m and to complete in 2025.
Liverpool City Council approved the project in July. The application calls for the construction of the extension on part of the Peach Street car park, as well as outline permission for a landscaped open space on the existing sports centre car park.
The scheme also includes internal changes to the Leverhulme Building, which consists of the Georgian Abercromby Terrace and the 1930s Budden extension.
