Multi-million pound contract in the Ten Streets regeneration

Liverpool-based Steven Hunt & Associates has won a multi-million-pound contract to work on the iconic Tobacco Warehouse, as part of the 125 acre Ten Streets regeneration at Liverpools North Docks.

Multi-million pound contract in the Ten Streets regeneration

The Tobacco Warehouse which originally opened in 1901 as the world’s largest brick warehouse, but after being derelict for many years, the Grade II listed building will now be converted into 538 state-of-the-art apartments being developed by Irish-based Harcourt Developments.


Harcourt Developments chose Steven Hunt & Associates over other national firms due to their impressive reputation for delivering M&E consultancy across a number of large scale developments in the North West, with recently completed projects including Ohel Torah Shul Synagogue in Salford and The Royal Court in Liverpool and the new Urgent Care & Trauma Centre at Aintree University Hospital.


Paul Manning at Harcourt Developments added:


Tobacco Warehouse is the next step in Liverpool’s regeneration, one which will bring the focus of the Waterfront up into the northern Docks. For such an important development, we wanted to ensure that we had the most skilled M&E Consultants we could find and on meeting Steve and the Team at Steven Hunt Associates we believe we have found that, the fact that they were local provided added benefit. Not only would they understand the importance of the development for the wider City they can be on site in less than 20 minutes if we need them to be.


“Staying true to local businesses is very important for us, and we hope to create over £10,000,000 worth of contracts in the region over the next two years.”


Set to blueprint the services distribution units on the 36-acre site, the M&E Consultant will design the central boiler unit to serve the new apartments, with the potential for a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system set to create economic and energy efficient benefits for all of the future residents.


Steven Hunt & Associates’ work at Tobacco Warehouse will also include the design of energy efficient lighting, access control, a full infrastructure distribution system, sprinklers to apartments and car park ventilation to the basement


Steve Hunt, managing director of Steven Hunt & Associates, said:


“Harcourt Developments are experts in this type of large scale redevelopment, so together we are hoping to create something the city can be truly proud of and I am exceptionally proud of my team.


The only Level 2 BIM practitioners in the city, Steven Hunt & Associates has long had a reputation for being the go to mechanical and electrical engineering firm in the region with other recent successful projects including Royal Court Liverpool, The Bolton Hospice, The Walton Centre, Hope University Sports Facilities and Great Sankey Leisure Centre


Steven Hunt & Associates’ first phase of work at the Tobacco Warehouse is set to begin in December, with the second and third phases of the building’s development planned for next year, before work is completed in 2019. 

"With such a large building, planning and preparation will as always, be key for Tobacco Warehouse. Identifying how we can save money for the client, we will ensure that the risk and cost base of this"
