Summary

Describes the renovated Bryant & May listed factory in the Speke area of Liverpool which has been transformed into a modern office development. Notes the importance of protecting the structure of the listed building while turning it from two storeys into three. In addition, the problem was met by installing the building services plant outside in six identical stainless steel pods, each providing space for heating and electrical distribution equipment, with allowance for other services such as telecommunications. Describes how flexibility was key during the planning of the renovation and notes management of solar glare of the highly-glazed building while retaining its listed character. Air conditioning and cooling will be fitted at a later date as part of the tenant's fit-out requirements.
