Graham hands over £57m Copper House development


Graham has completed the construction of The Copper House, a major build to rent residential development overlooking Liverpool’s iconic waterfront

Graham was appointed by joint venture partners, Patten Properties and Panacea Property Development, on behalf of Invesco Real Estate, the global real estate investment manager, as part of its growing UK residential portfolio.

The new Liverpool property features 383 apartments which are a mixture of one, two and three-bed that offer views across the River Mersey and Albert Dock.

Designed by Leach Rhodes Walker Architects, The Copper House is framed around two concrete tower structures, with off-site podded bathrooms, and a system façade designed to withstand inclement riverside weather conditions.

It includes communal space, resident lounge and a private gym, alongside 1,000 sq ft of ground-floor commercial units.

Residents will also benefit from rooftop facilities, such as a garden space with flexible and fixed seating, booth seating areas with fire pits and fire tables, an outdoor covered kitchen, and a multi-use central space suitable for events or exercise.

The area is enclosed by a 2m high glass balustrade to provide weather protection.

A modern living environment

Peter Reavey, Graham construction director, said: “Graham is proud to have delivered this high-quality residential scheme that provides a stunning addition to this iconic part of Liverpool city centre.

“The Copper House is a stand-out development which is already attracting significant demand.

“The quality of both the design and the build sets it apart, offering future residents a modern living environment with a community feel.

“Our early involvement, and close collaboration with our client Panacea throughout the journey, have been crucial to the success of this project, bringing our collective skills together to positively influence design, the construction methodology and the delivery programme.”

Neil Patten, joint managing director of Panacea Properties, added: “We were ambitious in the vision we set out for The Copper House, and to see it realised in such a spectacular way is something the entire team is very proud of.

“Liverpool now has a sought after residential development that encapsulates the optimism and ambition of the city.

“The consultant team including Leach Rhodes Walker, Curtins, DFC, Sharps Redmore, Lendlease, Capita and Squire Patton Boggs have all worked tirelessly to deliver a building that sets a new standard for the quality of residential living in Liverpool City centre.

“My thanks go to the entire team for their efforts, especially in the face of the challenges presented by the pandemic this year.”
