Liverpool-based M&E consultants, Steven Hunt & Associates, has won a multi-million-pound contract to work on the Tobacco Warehouse, as part of the Ten Streets regeneration at Liverpool’s North Docks.
The Grade II listed Tobacco Warehouse will now be converted into 538 state-of-the-art apartments, developed by Irish-based Harcourt Developments.
Paul Manning at Harcourt Developments said: “Tobacco Warehouse is the next step in Liverpool’s regeneration, one which will bring the focus of the Waterfront up into the northern Docks.
“For such an important development, we wanted to ensure that we had the most skilled M&E Consultants we could find and on meeting Steve and the Team at Steven Hunt Associates we believe we have found that, the fact that they were local provided added benefit. Not only would they understand the importance of the development for the wider City they can be on site in less than 20 minutes if we need them to be.
“Staying true to local businesses is very important for us, and we hope to create over £10m worth of contracts in the region over the next two years.”
Steven Hunt & Associates’ work at Tobacco Warehouse will include the design of energy efficient lighting, access control, a full infrastructure distribution system, sprinklers to apartments and car park ventilation to the basement
Steve Hunt, managing director of Steven Hunt & Associates, said: “Harcourt Developments are experts in this type of large scale redevelopment, so together we are hoping to create something the city can be truly proud of and I am exceptionally proud of my team.
“With such a large building, planning and preparation will as always, be key for Tobacco Warehouse. Identifying how we can save money for the client, we will ensure that the risk and cost base of this scheme is lowered, which is something we have become well known for doing.”
Steven Hunt & Associates’ first phase of work at the Tobacco Warehouse is set to begin in December, with the second and third phases of the building’s development planned for next year, before work is completed in 2019.
