Alder Hey R&D


Client: Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
Sector: Healthcare, Education
Cost: £24million

Lee Wakemans is proud to have worked on this award-winning three-storey building, providing research and education spaces to  the Alder Hey Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and their four University partners.

The project is the first part of a multi-phase science park supporting collaboration between the parties.

The building houses a mixture of spaces including research and teaching labs, offices, meeting rooms, lecture theatres, breakout spaces, a café and a library.

Timber has been used both internally and externally to respond to both its parkland setting and avoid an institutional environment. The modular nature of the façade has not only reduced installation time, but has provided ‘value for money’ for the NHS Trust.
