Film shows Archbishop Beck built in four minutes

Willmott Dixon has published a stunning time-lapse film of its work to build a new £18 million home for Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College in Liverpool.

The four minute film starts with an empty site and captures its transformation into a state-of-the-art 1000+ pupil secondary school, one of three the company is building in Liverpool.

The film also shows the inside of the school, and the large open spaces that are a feature of its innovative design.

“We’re very proud of Archbishop Beck and this film brings the entire construction to life, showing what is possible in a very short period of time. A key focus was supporting local jobs and companies and building Archbishop Beck gave a major boost with 70 per cent of the gross development value spent in the local economy and supply chain.”

Anthony Dillon, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the North West

Archbishop Beck also includes a sports hall with six courts, a 3G pitch, a theatre and recording and dance studios. Mayor Joe Anderson said: “The new Archbishop Beck Catholic Sports College is a fantastic facility which will provide thousands of young people with education in great surroundings.”
