Caunton were most proud to supply the structural steelwork for The Museum of Liverpool. Located at Pierhead, right on the Mersey waterfront –a World Heritage Site too- and next door to the Liver Building. The Museum is set to become an icon for this great city.
Caunton erected some 2000te of structural steelwork, working first off, and away from, massive concrete cores, as the photo shows.
The new museum is to take over from the existing Museum of Liverpool Life, which has been attracting an increasing number of visitors for ten years. Client New Museums of Liverpool, NML, believe this popular museum is too small to house and display its huge urban history collections satisfactorily. By building the new landmark museum, Liverpool will follow in the footsteps of previous European Capitals of Culture, Graz and Cork, which both had iconic buildings built to coincide with the title.
