The Spine Turns Blue for the NHS 72nd Birthday

Posted on

Working alongside Morgan Sindall, Liverpool City Council, The Knowledge Quarter and all the team involved in this iconic project, we helped light up the building in blue in honour of the NHS 72nd birthday which was done to show appreciation of the NHS and all the wonderful people who work so hard, particularly this year, to help keep us all safe.

The Royal College of Physicians new £ 35 Million Northern Headquarters is being built by Morgan Sindall in partnership with Liverpool City Council in the Paddington Village  scheme (Knowledge Quarter) in Liverpool.

The 160,000 sq ft building will be known as “ The Spine “ taking its name from a striking staircase on its north elevation that resembles the human vertebrae.

The building will be one of the healthiest workspaces for mental and physical wellbeing in the UK and among the first to achieve the international “ WELL “ Standard of modern building design.

The spine will feature a timber curtain wall designed to re-connect people with nature and a unique ceramic frit façade, complete with 23 Million unique Voronoi polygons that mimic human skin and reflect to the local environment to control noise and glare.

We have been appointed to Design and Install the complete Mechanical and Electrical services working alongside Morgan Sindall, ARUP and AHR Architects and Liverpool City Council. We are honoured to be involved on such an iconic special building and one we will be truly proud to help develop a magnificent project.

Mechanical and Electrical Value – £ 6. 4 Million
