Albert Dock, Liverpool
Engineering to save the Albert Dock from demolition, followed by 40 years of continuous involvement.
Mixed Use Regeneration - North West
The Albert Dock, including both The Tate Gallery and Maritime Museum, was originally constructed in 1839. Our involvement began with extensive investigations of the then derelict dock buildings in 1983 and since then we have had over 40 years of continuous commissions.

The derelict buildings at the dock were under threat for demolition in the 1980s
Our involvement started with Bill Curtin who passionately wished to protect and regenerate the dock buildings, which remain the UK’s largest group of Grade I listed buildings. We undertook extensive investigations of the then derelict dock buildings in 1983, establishing the requirements for major repair and renewals and subsequently saving them.
Full scale load testing of floors, roofs and foundations proved the potential for retention of the historic building structures, whilst significant repairs and sensitive alterations have converted the buildings into major tourist attractions in three major contracts. We continue to provide structural advice for exhibit loadings on floors, and for the maintenance / repair of the historic iron work, timber and masonry.
