Groundbreaking heralds the transformation of former Rolls Royce site in Liverpool

Posted on by in News

Following a groundbreaking event, Winvic Construction has begun work on the £35.8m project to design and build four warehouses at Atlantic Park in Bootle, Liverpool for Royal London Mutual Insurance Society Limited.

Atlantic Park covers 52-acres on the former site of the Rolls Royce Engineering Works Factory. Winvic will first be excavating existing concrete slabs and preparing the ground for construction. The four industrial warehouse units are 3,700m2, 4,640m2, 10,200m2 and 11,600m2 and each will include a two-storey office space.

The scheme has been designed in accordance with Royal London’s Sustainability Strategy, which aims for new build property developments to achieve net zero by 2030.

Winvic said it will be delivering the project as net zero carbon in construction and employing its tried and tested Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) process, which is aligned with the UKGBC and LETI, and third-party verified.

Aiming for BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and an EPC A rating, the project will also deliver a 10 per cent biodiversity net gain; bird, bat and insect nest boxes will also be installed.

Caunton Engineering will be fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for the four warehouses.
