We’re a month into our 15 week major refurbishment project at Liverpool’s Exchange Station Building, creating high end office spaces for Commercial Estates Group (CEG) to let. Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far…
Property developers CEG wanted to transform dilapidated office spaces on the ground floor of the Exchange Station Building into state-of-the-art Grade A workplaces – as there’s an unsatisfied demand for high quality office space in this prime Liverpool location.
We’re working with all trades to make that happen, from large mechanical and electrical fitters to floorers and decorators. Together, we’ll install features from light boxes to ceilings, glass partitions and pieces of brick slip to complement the existing interior.
But first and foremost, we decided to give Liverpool Exchange’s occupants a sneak preview of what they can expect from our refurbishment, by installing a photorealistic 3D visual to the temporary screen on our construction site. Every day, we’re working hard to make the image a reality.
It’s genuinely exciting to work on such a unique building, we’re already hoping that this project will blossom into further opportunities on other floors; and when they do, you’ll find out first right here,
The Liverpool Exchange Station is a disused 10 platform train station in the city centre, which closed down over 50 years ago, decades after it barely survived the Blitz of 1941.
Where trains once passed through the two brick arches on the building’s facade, office and retail workers now wander through into the reception concourse, complete with AV meeting rooms and breakout areas – part of a £7 million refurbishment program.
Despite these vast improvements, the Exchange Station Building is far from the finished article, which is why CEG invited us to contribute. Keep checking back here on the blog to find out how we’re doing, as we complete the first third of the project
