The building consultancy team at CBRE in Liverpool has completed a £2.2m restoration project of the external elevations of the Grade II Listed Tower Building in Liverpool.
The historic Tower Building was originally built as a seven-storey office block, but was converted in 2006 into 73 apartments, with the three lower floors retained for commercial and retail use. Last year RBH converted the first and second floors into apartments.
The restoration project, led by Simon Hepple, director, supported by specialist conservation building surveyor, Dylan Evans for the building consultancy team at CBRE Liverpool, took 22 months to complete with all residents remaining in-situ.
Works to the building included sympathetic replacement of irreparable faience cladding, faience repairs, re-pointing, specialist timber sash window repairs and replacement of roof coverings across 14 individual roofs.
CBRE's Simon Hepple, building surveyor, designer and project manager, commented: "We are pleased to issue practical completion on the £2.2m restoration project at the iconic Tower Building. The project proved challenging at times as materials such as Faience were difficult to source and lengthy to manufacture.
“In addition, we worked hard to ensure all residents could remain in-situ while the works were being carried out. We are delighted to see the building now restored to its former glory."
