Demolition to pave way for ‘game changer’ tower scheme in Liverpool
Demolition work is about to start on the site of the Infinity tower scheme in Liverpool city centre.
Mees Demolition Group, part of Liverpool-based Mees Group, will knock down three buildings totalling 30,000 sq ft to make way for the £250m residential development.
Infinity will comprise three glazed tower blocks and a ground level ‘podium’ housing facilities for residents, including landscaped gardens, gym, cinema, lounges and meeting rooms.
Liverpool developer Elliot Group is the company behind the scheme, which was greenlit in April last year.
Thomas Mee, of Mees Demolition, said: “In relation to our role, we are demolishing three buildings on the site totalling 30,000 sq ft and clearing the car parking areas for development.
“We anticipate commencing work in Spring this year. This site will certainly be a game changer in the skyline of our city.”
He continued: “At Mees Demolition we are aiming for as much sustainability as possible in demolition-deconstruction works. While complete deconstruction is the preferred and most sustainable method for removing or renovating a structure, it is not always possible due to the type of building and or its components.
“We aim to cut down on the amount of landfill wherever possible and bring this philosophy to every job we do.”
Infinity will be completed within the next three years.
