    Port of Liverpool

    Ventrolla Lancashire was awarded the contract to renovate the 630 windows of the Port of Liverpool building, as part of a year long project to restore the property to its original glory.

    “Ventrolla’s work is part of a £10 million restoration programme that Downing is undertaking to restore the Port of Liverpool Building to its former glory and enhance its appeal as a contemporary office space".



    The Grade II* listed building was built in the early 1900s and makes up one-third of the “Three Graces” based at Liverpool’s Pier Head, a World Heritage site.

    It was damaged during the Blitz in 1941 and is currently undergoing major internal and external restoration work by the owner, Liverpool’s biggest commercial landlord company, Downing.

    The building is home to some of the most prestigious companies in Merseyside, including Rathbones  Investment Bank, and is the largest project ever undertaken by Ventrolla Lancashire.

    The windows have been upgraded using the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS), which has been tested to 600 Pa, the equivalent to winds of 71 mph, and achieved Class 3 of BS 6375-1.

    Richard Ellis, Managing Director of Ventrolla Lancashire, said: “At Ventrolla we are committed to renovating historic buildings in a way that allows them to retain their character and be energy efficient.

    The Port of Liverpool Building is a striking landmark on the Liverpool riverside and we are delighted to play our part in its regeneration.”

    Ian Orton, a Director of Downing, said “Ventrolla’s work is part of a £10 million restoration programme that Downing is undertaking to restore the Port of Liverpool Building to its former glory and enhance its appeal as a contemporary office space.
