Everton Football Club’s innovative scheme to develop a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock in Liverpool, is recognised as the largest single-site private sector development currently in construction in the UK.
Having worked with Everton since 2015, the RLB UK team was involved from early cost feasibility of both the site and concept design options through to the completion of RIBA Stage 4 design, contractor procurement and conclusion of a contract sum with the preferred contractor at the end of an 18-month Pre-construction Services Agreement. The RLB team is now providing cost management services on site for the 52,888 capacity stadium development. Along with the reclamation of the historic Bramley-Moore Dock the project also includes the sympathetic restoration of the surrounding historic public realm.
With full planning consent received earlier in 2021, enabling works, including the dock infill, are now underway with around 450,000 m3 of sand being dredged from the Irish Sea and pumped and compacted into Bramley-Moore Dock.
This transformational development is a symbol of how the Liverpool City Region is leading the North and the UK’s post-pandemic recovery by delivering one of the largest packages of public benefits ever seen in the North West, generating a £1.3billion boost to the economy, creating tens of thousands of jobs and attracting 1.4million visitors to the Liverpool City Region.
