Simons retail team undertook the significant repurposing of Liverpool’s Metquarter shopping centre, including extensive remodelling of the centre’s interior to extend and open up the available space, as well as a comprehensive overhaul of the associated services to accommodate the new floorplan.
The works include structural modifications including piled foundations, strengthened and new steel structure to support the increased loads from the cinema and related additions. In addition to the layout reconfiguration and refurbishment additional lifts including a new scenic lift have been provided.
The centre’s exterior was also given a makeover, with new terraces and “Juliet” balconies formed as well as a new lighting scheme to all elevations. The project, for Simons’ customer Queensberry Real Estate, also included a four-screen boutique cinema and additional restaurant space.
Launched in 2006 as a high-end retail destination, Metquarter boasts tenants including Hugo Boss, LK Bennett, and Jo Malone.
