Context

Wirral Waters Campus is a dedicated built environment, skills and enterprise centre, providing further education and training for local young people. Sitting across the Mersey from Liverpool, this RIBA award winning project is the first exemplar building to be built in an extensive masterplan for the Wirral Waters development.

The dockland location has been transformed by a design that reflects its heritage and is now an attractive outdoor space where students and staff can enjoy their breaks while seated among blocks of trees and grasses.

Products supplied

Vestre supplied a range of products for the location including BLOC benches and tables together with BLOC sunbenches. A vital factor for all external materials is that they were selected for their durability in a harsh maritime environment. The BLOC furniture items are manufactured from powder coated steel. The chunky timber slats are made from PEFC-certified pine from Scandinavia which have been impregnated with linseed-oil to create a hard wearing finish.

Views out over the docks are framed by large steel frames, that were inspired by industrial references in the neighbouring landscape.
