Exploring renovations at iconic Walker Art Gallery


We recently had the privilege of hosting more than 30 visitors for a tour at our multi-million-pound ongoing project at the Walker Art Gallery, a prominent landmark based in Liverpool’s city centre. This event was in partnership with the amazing Women in Property North West 

The gallery is managed by National Museums Liverpool and is a widely recognised and visited attraction of the city for tourists and locals alike, boasting one of the largest art collections in England outside of London.

A VIP tour

The group were able to glimpse some of the current renovations underway at the gallery. Phase one providing an insight into the interior renovations, where the group received VIP treatment from the museum’s Decorative Art Curator, Nicola Scott, who kindly led a private tour of the gallery’s collection of art by female artists.


External Renovations

Phase two of the project focuses on the external renovations. This includes the repair and replacement of eroded stone balustrades and cornices, as well as the repair, cleaning, and repointing of stonework on the elevations. Additional health and safety measures are also being added to the roof, including an installation of handrail sections and access steps, to ensure that the space is amended to tackle any accessibility issues and concerns.

Strong Partnerships in progress

The external restorations and improvements are a collaborative effort alongside our project team Walker Sime, Safer Sphere, and Curtins, who all hold strong reputations in the North West for their work in the industry. 

We would like to extend our appreciation to Women in Property for their support on this project, and our brilliant team at Krol Corlett for facilitating the engaging events on the day.

It’s a privilege to collaborate with such an inspiring group and we are glad to play a part in nurturing curiosity for both women & men entering the construction sector.

A full case study will be coming soon…
