Aztec appointed on trio of ecclesiastical projects
Liverpool-based construction and fit-out firm, Aztec, has secured a trio of ecclesiastical projects in Merseyside with a combined value of more than £1million.
Aztec has been appointed to complete the refurbishment of the Grade II listed St Nicholas Church in central Liverpool; a place of worship since 1247, it requires a sensitive approach and specialist knowledge.
In the grounds of the Anglican Cathedral, Aztec is building an extension to St Aidan’s House, providing additional conference and meeting room space for teaching and training. A challenging project, the two-floor extension requires a considered approach, sympathetic to its surroundings and in keeping with the traditional build.
Completing the trio of projects, Aztec will deliver an extensive re-ordering and refurbishment project at St John’s Church, Ainsdale. Works include complete M&E renewal, including underfloor heating, complete refinishing plus new manufactured joinery made in Aztec’s own joiner’s workshop. Using its wider property expertise, the team was also able to advice on due diligence and compliance prior to commencement of the project.
Iain Peacock, managing director at Aztec, said: “Construction work on heritage buildings requires a knowledgeable, considered approach with specialist expertise. Based in Liverpool and with expertise in both traditional and modern building methods, our team was the right fit for these important projects; the three buildings are very dear to their local communities, and we are working hard to ensure that the work is delivered to the highest standard, on time, and with minimal disruption. We’re really pleased to have been appointed on each of the projects, and are looking forward to seeing the end results.”
