The Foundry, Liverpool
Project: The Foundry, Liverpool Ropewalks Conservation Area
Employer: The Regenda Group
Procurement Framework: Not applicable
Programme: 92 weeks
Works Description: The project restored five historic, derelict 18th and 19th century warehouses, including a former naval armaments foundry from which the scheme takes its name, carefully regenerated and contrasted with new buildings, within a mixed use scheme comprising commercial business units and 80 residential apartments.
The seven building development is arranged around a central passageway that interacts with the private and public buildings, acting as the pedestrian point of entry for the development. The scheme was approved and monitored by English Heritage, Liverpool City Council and Liverpool Ropewalks and the end result is a superb inner city development that respects the heritage of the site and the city.
