Aloft Liverpool

The Grade II listed, Royal Insurance Building is considered to be one of Liverpool’s iconic buildings due to its Neo-Baroque style of architecture.

After sitting empty for 20years, the building was in a state of disrepair and listed on English Heritages, buildings at risk register.

As HE Simm’s preferred design partner, Abacus Consult were employed to carry out the full MEP services design.

The project design proved to be extremely challenging due to its Grade II listing and conservation requirements but went on to secure the 2016 project of the year at the BCI awards in the £10m-£50m category.
