Spotlight On: Liverpool



Over the last 30 years Dunbar and Boardman has delivered many projects throughout the world and lots of those have been in the UK.  D & B’s first Liverpool–based project was in the 1980s.  We initially worked with HH + J Robinson (now CBRE) mainly on buildings owned by Equity and Law (now Axa). We also reported and advised on St Johns Tower, again for HH + J Robinson on behalf of the owners Land Securities. We then worked extensively with local agencies such as Edmund Kirby (now Matthews and Goodman) on India Building amongst other sites.

The recent Liverpool Conference was in conjunction with the International Festival of Business successfully organised by UK property forums & Matt Battle. The conference clearly demonstrated how successfully Liverpool has transformed itself.  Once a conventional historic port Liverpool is now a modern commercial city within an industrial fringe.  We wish to congratulate UK Property Forums and Matt Battle for a wonderful conference and Keppie Massie for the tour and dinner themes.

It is also worth pointing out that in addition to these historical projects we have quite a lot of recent and current projects in Liverpool as you can see by the list below:

Recent D & B Projects in Liverpool include:
  • We advised on the John Lewis roll-out programme which included Liverpool and supported WSP on the Liverpool One development.
  • Mersey Tunnels – installed new lift at Wallasey Stores building and a full modernisation of passenger lifts at Wallasey Police and Tolls terminal 
  • University of Liverpool – new install of passenger lift and 1 VPL at LORI Project
  • Belle Vale Shopping Centre – full modernisation of Mall passenger lift
  • Broadgreen Hospital – installation of a bed/passenger lift
  • RBS/NWB Skelmersdale – new bullion lift
  •  The Capital Building (formerly Royal Insurance HQ) modernisation of the main group of lifts.
  • Port of Liverpool Building  - Grade II* listed  – 5 full replacements 2010
  • Cunard Building - Grade II* listed – 6  major modernisations 2005 
  • Maritime Museum – Part of Albert Dock – Grade 1 listed -  hydraulic modernisations 2007
We also handle the Maintenance Management for the National Museums Liverpool which includes the Museum of Liverpool.
