Development work starts on £66m project in Liverpool
Building work has started on a £66m development on Liverpool’s Kings Dock, a recent news report in the local media was able to reveal.
The new area is set to become the first purpose-built inter-connected arena, convention and exhibition centre in Europe.
Scheduled to open in September 2015, Exhibition Centre Liverpool will more than double the existing exhibition space at ACC Liverpool to 15,225 square metres.
It will link to the Echo Arena and existing convention centre via a pedestrian link bridge, and will create the an ambitious venue for consumer and trade exhibitions, global conferences, concerts and international sporting events. In its first year of operation, it is expected to host about 50 events and attract more than 250,000 visitors.
Having benefitted from significant public sector support in the past, including approximately £74m from the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) and former English Partnerships, Kings Dock is now a successful destination boasting two hotels, restaurants and residential apartments alongside the Echo Arena and the convention centre.
Taking into account the size of the new development and the range of activities that will be carried out within, implementing a very solid and reliable access control system across the entire site is a must, especially for those specific areas where access should be restricted.
