Initially appointed in 2005 to prepare public realm design guidance for the £5.5 billion regeneration of 120Ha of Liverpool’s Northern Docks, we have since produced a variety of key documents that will shape this new City District. Amongst them is the Building Characterisation and Precedents Study (BCPS) – examining not just the project proposals but its world-wide ambitions and the very DNA of the city itself.

One of the largest approvals within a World Heritage Site anywhere in the world, our work has set the bar for the Liverpool Waters project and, in turn, for the northward growth of the city centre over the next 30 years.
