Latest waterfront development completed

GRAHAM has completed the construction of The Copper House, a major build to rent residential development overlooking Liverpool’s waterfront, which had a construction contract sum of £57m.

The privately-owned construction, facilities management and investments contractor delivered the multi-storey scheme following a 33-month programme.

It was appointed by joint venture partners, Patten Properties and Panacea Property Development, on behalf of Invesco Real Estate, the global real estate investment manager, as part of its growing UK residential portfolio.

The new property features 383 apartments which are a mixture of one, two and three bed with views across the River Mersey and Albert Dock.

Designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects, The Copper House is framed around two concrete tower structures, with off-site podded bathrooms, and a system façade designed to withstand inclement riverside weather conditions.

It includes communal space, resident’s lounge, and a private gym, alongside 1,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial units.

It also has rooftop facilities, such as a garden space with flexible and fixed seating, booth seating areas with fire pits and fire tables, an outdoor covered kitchen, and a multi-use central space suitable for events or exercise.

Peter Reavey, GRAHAM Construction Director said: “GRAHAM is proud to have delivered this high-quality residential scheme that provides a stunning addition to this iconic part of Liverpool city centre. The Copper House is a stand-out development which is already attracting significant demand. The quality of both the design and the build sets it apart, offering future residents a modern living environment with a community feel.

“Our early involvement, and close collaboration with our client Panacea throughout the journey, have been crucial to the success of this project, bringing our collective skills together to positively influence design, the construction methodology and the delivery programme.”
