Constructing a new car park for Kings Dock, Liverpool
- One of a host of projects in Liverpool that have seen over £90m worth of community and regeneration projects
- New car park will support hundreds visiting Liverpool
- Project includes the demolition of damaged car park
Our team is creating a new nine-floor, 1450 space car park for Liverpool city Council to replace the one that was destroyed in a fire in 2017.
Watch the time lapse film of our team carefully and securely taking down the old ACC car park, making it safe and ready for a new chapter:
The car park is due to open in the summer of 2020 with a temporary car park in place whilst the new one is built. The project includes the demolition of the damaged Liverpool Waterfront car park which was destroyed in the 1000 degrees Celsius blaze. The car park will then be leveled and made safe before being incorporated into the wider master plan for Kings Dock.
Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said:
"I’m delighted we’ve now begun to start building a new permanent car park to support ACC Liverpool.
“It’s been a fantastic effort by all concerned that not one event at the campus was cancelled in the aftermath of the fire.
“This new facility will provide the waterfront with a car park fit for the future. The site of the original car park will be a useful asset in how we shape the next phase of the regeneration of Kings Dock.”
Anthony Dillon, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the North, said:
“From the moment we received the call from Liverpool City Council in the immediate aftermath of the fire, we’ve been committed to supporting the regeneration of Kings Dock, and we’re thrilled to be able to continue that work.
“In total, across the city of Liverpool, we have delivered more than £90m of community and regeneration projects, and have invested over £75m with local businesses. We are delighted to begin our latest project for Liverpool City Council and to be leaving a lasting positive legacy for the people of Merseyside.”
Our team in the North also recently built the Victoria Street car park in Liverpool City Centre in addition to a hub for a new fruit, vegetable and flower market in Gillmoss.
