Wirral Waters, Birkenhead
The vision for Wirral Waters is for a major high-rise, mixed-use development within the East Float area of Birkenhead Docks. It also includes a major high quality development at the former Bidston Dock to create a new retail and leisure destination for the Wirral area. The docks will continue to function with some consolidation of the dock system taking place so that it can operate efficiently.
We are part of the design team working to develop a city structure for the East Float area of Wirral Waters. The aim is for this area to become a great new place for people to work, live and socialise. The area will be divided into a number of quarters, each masterplanned by different architects, and containing individually designed buildings, with some in excess of 50 storeys high. Our role involves the provision of civil, infrastructure, structural, transport and public realm engineering input. Outline planning permission was granted in August 2010.
