STG has undertaken the design and build of 19 Social Housing properties at The Priory in Liverpool for Adactus Housing. The site originally housed the famous Priory Pub; a regular haunt for the Beatles. As such, we were not surprised that the planning application received many objections from local residents. However, through early consultation with the community and our social value initiatives, we alleviated concerns and built a strong relationship with local businesses and residents.
Works commenced in April 2016 with the demolition of the Pub and remedial work. The new build works included; ground works, site access, parking provision, external landscaping, masonry, roof coverings, joinery, mechanical, electrical, plumbing installations and internal/external finishes. Properties were constructed from steel shell piles and reinforced concrete ground beams with block and beam concrete ground floors and TGI timber joists to upper floors. Traditional masonry walling was used for the internal and external walls. Roofs are timber truss, covered with traditional tile lathe, felt and roof tiles.
Relationships with all stakeholders
During implementation, we worked with Adactus to develop a Community Engagement Plan that was focussed on softening our presence to the community. Our Project Management Team, in particular, Contracts Manager, Ian Marshall and Site Manager, Nick Edge, have been instrumental in building strong relationships with all stakeholders from design, to implementation and ongoing. This includes the Local Authority, residents, businesses and the nearby school. We openly communicate with all parties and use a pragmatic approach to challenges, as detailed below:
Local Supply Chain
We have an extensive Supply Chain of both local and National pre-screened Suppliers and Sub-contractors. As part of our commitment to strengthen relationships with the local community, we advertised our works and invited VCSEs and SMEs from the Litherland area to join our Supply Chain as suppliers or sub-contractor.
