NEW LIVERPOOL STANLEY DOCK TOBACCO WAREHOUSE APARTMENT COMMUNAL AREA
The Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse is a grade II listed building and is the world's largest brick warehouse. It is adjacent to the Stanley Dock, in Liverpool, England. Standing 125 feet high, the building was, at the time of its construction in 1901, claimed to be the world's largest building in terms of floor space and the number of bricks used for the building.
The warehouse has been recently developed into luxury apartments. For the new development, a new shared communal area has been developed which will be a shared area for all the residents. This will incorporate new planters and create an attractive communal area.
For the groundwork development, polystyrene and crushed concrete (MOT/6f2) aggregate was originally proposed. But it was through the research into the groundwork properties of LECA LWA and the ability to be pneumatically delivered in a confined space that the specification changed to LECA’s lightweight expanded clay aggregate.
Amount of material: 250m3 of LECA® LWA (10-20mm)
Interesting Fact: For the groundwork for the communal area, polystyrene and crushed concrete (MOT/6f2) aggregate was originally proposed.
