MEES DEMOLITION is to begin work on the clearing of Wolstenholme Square in Liverpool city centre. The demolition of multiple buildings in the square will make way for a £40 million redevelopment scheme due to house more than 400 apartments, as well as a new venue for Nation nightclub, home of nightclub superbrand Cream. Mees has offices in Manchester and London but the company’s HQ is based here in Liverpool, where the team is also currently playing its part in the redevelopment of the Royal Liverpool Hospital. The plans for Wolstenholme Square, already approved by Liverpool City Council, will see contractor Newry Construction build five apartment blocks, as well as retail space, restaurant units and an underground nightclub. Mees will use the latest technologies and equipment to ensure that disruption in this busy city centre area is kept to a minimum during the clearing of the site. The entire scheme will be overseen by developers Elliot Group. Thomas Mee, managing director of Mees Demolition said: “We know that all eyes will be on the redevelopment of this iconic Liverpool square. Being so close to Liverpool ONE and The Albert Dock, Wolstenholme Square will be a fantastic place to live once the development is completed. Liverpool is booming at the moment, with demand for city living at an all-time high. We are no strangers to working right in the heart of our home city but every time it is a privilege to be involved in reshaping the face of Liverpool for future generations.”
