Liverpool architects Falconer Chester Hall secure five new contracts taking the total value of projects they are working on to £1.5bn.
Liverpool architecture practice Falconer Chester Hall (FCH) is now working on UK projects worth a total of £1.5bn after securing five new deals.
Located in Liverpool, Nottingham and London, the five schemes are worth a total of £300m. They comprise almost 2,500 residential units, of which more than 1,800 have already secured planning consent.
Among the projects is Legacie Developments’ One Park Lane, adjacent to the Liverpool ONE shopping district, and Jubilee House near London’s Olympic stadium for Unite Students and RG Group.
“This is a bumper set of contracts and testimony to our team’s expertise and track record,” said FCH practice managing director Adam Hall:
“We are in the midst of a recruitment drive to ensure that our capacity remains ahead of our workload and our new business pipeline”
FCH has been contracted by Northern Irish developer McAleer & Rushe to deliver a seven-storey student block on Huntingdon Street in Nottingham and by Packaged Living to examine options for its new site at Old Hall Street in Liverpool’s business district.
In a separate deal with Legacie Developments, the 85-strong practice will also be responsible for bringing the historic Heap’s Rice Mill in Liverpool’s south docks back to life.
Associate director Martin Haymes, who is leading the One Park Lane project team, added: “There’s more than 1m sq ft of space across these five schemes.
“Our focus will be on working closely with the other project professionals to ensure deliverability and cost-control in all aspects of design.”
