Contractor Carillion has completed the 30-storey Beetham Tower in Liverpool for high-rise developer the Beetham Organisation.
The 110 m high scheme, designed by Aedas Architects, contains 126 one- and two-bedroom city-centre apartments and nine duplex penthouses. The £1.5m glazing contract was carried out by Airedale Architectural in partnership with aluminium specialist Technal. The windows were inserted into pre-cast concrete panels off-site and craned into position, reducing the programme time. This method, which was also used for the adjacent Radisson hotel, removed the need for external scaffolding.
