Project cost management specialist Hive Projects is launching a new office in Liverpool after winning work on Everton ’s £500m stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
Manchester-based Hive is taking up residence at No 12 Princes Dock in Liverpool Waters. This is just a short distance from the Everton stadium scheme which started on the waterfront in summer 2021.
Hive is undertaking management work on the development which will see a new 52,888-capacity arena built in the next three years. Its team of 17 will now be able to work flexibly between Liverpool and Manchester. The firm also plans to recruit locally as it grows its team.
Chris Waine, director of Hive Projects, said: “Having celebrated two years of rapid growth, major contract wins and the expansion of our leadership team since 2020 in Manchester, our new Liverpool site will help us consolidate our position in the marketplace.
“It will strengthen the client relationships we already have in the region. And it will provide greater employment and project opportunities in Liverpool, allowing our team to work within new areas.
“With staff members already living and working around the city and with projects with Peel L&P and Alder Hey Children’s Hospital already in our portfolio, we will now relish the chance to really put Hive Projects on the map in the city.”
Liverpool Waters owner Peel L&P was represented by Brabners. No 12 Princes Dock is home to companies such as Cargill, CMA and CGM Shipping.
Liza Marco, asset manager at Liverpool Waters, added: “The transformation of the Liverpool waterfront is attracting a wide range of businesses who want to be a part of our vision for Liverpool Waters.”
