Mann Island is Avenue HQ’s first location so it was vital that it impressed. It had to be special. Its enviable postcode and location on Liverpool waterfront next to the city’s famous ‘three graces’ was a crucial first step; the space itself was entrusted to Aztec. We were invited by AHQ to lead them through the design and delivery process within a fixed budget.
Aztec were employed on a negotiated contract and used a design & build methodology; the development of the design running parallel to achieve the required completion date. The design guide is to maintain the industrial look and modern workspace and take advantage of the spectacular views of Liverpool’s waterfront.
This site drew on Aztec’s three core areas of construction, fit-out and M&E. We installed a cantilevered floor deck extend the original mezzanine within the original double height storey at ground and first floor, which were optimised for acoustics and fire safety. We installed new M&E throughout, glazed partitions forming cellular offices, bar, café, kitchen and toilets.
Aztec were fortunate to win the coveted Mixology award.
