Project Overview

The Wirral Waters masterplan involves the technical masterplanning and site wide infrastructure to deliver two new commercial, leisure and residential neighbourhoods on the former docksides in Birkenhead, known as North Bank and Tower Road. The project includes the creation of a new residential and leisure destination in a dockland setting that will be one of the most sustainable developments in the country.

The Challenge

Complex brownfield former docklands sites with numerous legacy constraints from existing buried infrastructure, including services, docks and legacy sub-structures. 

Our Solution

We worked collaboratively with the project team and stakeholders to develop engineering solutions to the complex constraints. This included Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) that integrated the  development's landscaping with the dockside environment and maximised the benefits of a surface water outfall into the dock system.

Project Highlights

We have added value using our ‘Carbon Calculator’ toolkit to assess the embodied carbon content. We also assisted with MMC Categorisation to enable the project team to refine the principles of standardised grid layouts and floor to floor heights, driving cost and programme efficiency through the design, manufacture and assembly phases. Our work included design appraisals of both volumetric and panelised systems against the constraints of each development plot.
