Royal Insurance Building, Liverpool, Merseyside
Conservation and transformation project
OUR WORK HERE

After standing empty for over 20 years, the Grade II* former Royal Insurance Building, in the heart of Liverpool, was converted to the luxury Aloft Hotel.

This fascinating building, dating from 1903 has a granite and Portland stone façade that conceals a steel structure, possibly the first of its kind to be built in Britain.

WORKS INCLUDED:
  • External nebulous water cleaning of the Portland stone facade
