Royal Albert Dock - The Colonnades

Appointed by General Projects, Planet were asked to develop and deliver new office suites at The Colonnades, part of the Royal Albert Dock complex in Liverpool. This contemporary workspace needed to be sympathetic to the existing exposed brick interior while offering tenants a attractive & connected space for a business to thrive.

As part of the professional team, along with Modero, and Studio MUTT, we had to work within strict guidelines for Grade I listed building status. This provided some challenges as more of the building was stripped back for the preparation of flooring, construction of offices within the designated suites and new mechanical systems to achieve the desired outcome. Working in a live environment, with existing occupiers, and general public also needed to be taken into account too.

We have also completed new washrooms and shower facilities to accommodate the proposed increase workforce. While on site we were also commissioned Phase II for the exterior works to the ground floor retail units and stairways. This is one of several proposed investments planned by General Projects to embrace, work, social, and leisure experience on the dock.
