Sunnymede

The Sunnymede building was first constructed in the mid 19th Century. It has been used as a Italianate style villa, nursing home and Sunnymede School, which was Southport’s last independent school. It closed shortly before its 50th anniversary in 2010.   

The Grade II listed building is being converted into flats and houses. 

The refurbishment and conversion has included the demolition of the headmaster’s house, temporary school buildings and outbuildings. This was followed by the construction of six self-contained apartments and a further seven new houses built in two terraces .

We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team from Delph Construction on this package which is so full of history, and we can’t wait to see this beautiful building being used again. 

 

 

Greenbank House, ULCCO

We started working with the University of Liverpool Construction Company (Special Projects) in May on a very special conservation project.

The Grade 2* listed Greenbank House, was built in the early 1700’s as part of the Toxteth Park estate. It was acquired by William Rathbone IV in 1809 from the Earl of Sefton, and was left to Liverpool University by the Rathbone family.

Greenbank House features unique architecture which has evolved from many additions to the original farmhouse, and is in the process of being renovated to bring it back to its former glory.

Once completed, the house will accommodate teaching facilities.

Progress is coming along great and all on time!
