Base2Stay Hotel, Liverpool

Base2Stay Hotel Projects Ridge & Partners LLP

A disused eighteenth century warehouse in Liverpool was transformed into a six-storey hotel (now renamed ‘The Nadler’) in an ambitious project by hotel provider, Base2Stay. Ridge was integral to the redevelopment of the site in a conservation area featuring historic industrial buildings on Seel Street, in the city centre. We were appointed, based on our multi-discipline expertise, in both restoration work and the hotels sector.

The warehouse had seen multiple uses since its construction in 1766. Among other uses it had been home to a brewery, saw-mill, iron foundry and cork importing business. Most recently, between the mid 1900’s and 1970, it was a print works. The building had not been used since then and had deteriorated into a poor state of repair.

The hotel project therefore started with extensive repair works, which had to be sympathetic to the building’s historic features. The addition of a six-storey extension resulted in the provision of a total of 106 bedrooms and communal facilities, including a reception, IT suite, staff accommodation and offices.

Ridge was briefed to manage the complex planning application process and negotiate a contract sum over a protracted period. In this way we delivered the most economic solutions within the constraints of the planning permission and while meeting the requirements of both the Heritage Lottery Fund, which contributed to funding, and the Local Authority Conservation Officer.

Our experts delivered further benefits for the client by undertaking a complex value engineering exercise. Our solutions included increasing the amount of off-site pre-fabrication of key project components, such as en-suite bathrooms, to drive efficiencies and savings. This ensured that the project was delivered within the funding available.
