Royal Liver Building Staircases, Liverpool

When it comes to heritage credentials, they don’t come much more prestigious than Liverpool’s Royal Liver Building. The Grade I-listed office is one of Liverpool’s “Three Graces” and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Martime Mercantile City. Originally constructed as the home of the Liver Assurance Company, the Royal Liver Building was one of the first buildings in the world to be constructed using reinforced concrete when it was completed in 1911. The building stands almost 100m tall to the top of its spires and more than 502m to the main roof. For many years it was Europe’s tallest building and it remains the fourth tallest building in Liverpool today. The works undertaken by EPIC were to 2 staircases up to the Liver Birds. The staircase on site was completely refurbished and then painted. The second staircase was completely renewed and then blasted and primed in the Ellesmere Port workshops and then finish coated on site.
Hankinson EPIC’s Barry Ackers and his team carried out the works.
