Merseyside Travel

Merseytravel’s original HQ in Hatton Garden was found to be not fit for purpose in 2007. This meant that they had to find new premises, that would provide a suitable Head Office for this large public body. In Febuary 2012 they moved into a 12 storey waterfront building in the centre of Liverpool.


Stakeholders Engaged
After initially retaining London based architects and interior designers. It was decided after awarding the contract to Jenkinsons for the furniture to take advantage of our free design planning and consultation services.

The stakeholders then became the “New HQ project team!”.

Objectives / Challenges
The objective was to provide a modern design, that reflected the building and its location whilst allowing Merseytravel to adapt new methods of working and future proof its furniture inventory. We also needed to provide a chamber for the “authority”, plus break-out training areas that could be used by third parties.

The challenges of this project were to help and support the ‘HQ team’, who had no experience of a similar project. This meant we had to be alongside them constantly when engaging with all involved stakeholders.

As reflected by the project leaders comments:
“The relocation was used to transform the way the organisation works and Jenkinsons input into the design and planning process was critical in achieving our aims”
