Tate Liverpool appoints Gilbert-Ash as main contractor for gallery transformation


Tate Liverpool today announced Gilbert-Ash as the main contractor for a major reimagining of the landmark gallery on Royal Albert Dock.This 29.75 million redevelopmentwill transform one of the UKs most important spaces for modern and contemporary art. Designed by 6a architects, the plans have recently been granted planning permission and listed building consent.

This year Gilbert-Ash completed work on the National Portrait Gallery in London and previously worked on the Stirling Prize winning Everyman Theatre in Liverpool. They have also acted as the main contractor for other celebrated cultural capital projects, including Battersea Arts Centre and Bristol Old Vic. Their heritage portfolio includes the refurbishment and restoration of the Grade II-listed City of London Freemens School and the refurbishment and extension of the Grade I-listed kitchen and dining building at Jesus College, Cambridge.

Emma King, Capital Director, Tate, said: Gilbert-Ashs track record of working to the highest standards on both cultural and heritage buildings makes them the perfect contractors to deliver the reimagined Tate Liverpool. We look forward to collaborating with the architects and contractors to deliver this once-in-a-generation renewal, creating an art museum fit for the 21st century.

Raymond Gilroy, Construction Director, Gilbert-Ash, said: We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this landmark and transformational project at Tate Liverpool. It is another unique project to add to our extensive portfolio in the Cultural, Arts and Heritage sector. Project Director, Rodney Coalter, who recently completed the National Portrait Gallery, London, will head up the team. The team is already in place finalising plans to deal with the many logistical and technical challenges that lie ahead, in advance of a start on site in early 2024. We are looking forward to developing successful and collaborative relationships with both our new client at Tate Liverpool, the wider project consultant team, and to a very successful project delivery.

Tate Liverpool is housed in an iconic 1846 warehouse that was redesigned by Sir James Stirling and Michael Wilford in the late 1980s as the cornerstone of the reinvention of the Royal Albert Dock. It helped establish Tate as a pioneer for arts-led regeneration in the UK.

The upcoming transformation will reimagine the gallery to meet the scale and ambition of todays most exciting artists and to welcome visitors into a brand new museum environment. The designs include a new public Art Hall on the ground floor, opened up to admit daylight and views across the historic dock. New gallery spaces over three floors will showcase the incredible diversity of Tates collection and are interspersed with public riverside foyers. Opening up the gallerys faade will increase its visibility on the waterfront and within the Royal Albert Dock, creating an inviting destination with striking spaces for learning, play and relaxation.

Environmental standards and thermal performance will be significantly improved with new services replacing fossil fuel, with renewables and natural ventilation introduced to the building to ensure better energy performance.

Planning permission and listed building consent for the project was granted by Liverpool City Council in October and construction will commence early in 2024.

Funding for the 29.7 million project has come from the UK Government, including 10m from the Levelling Up Fund, as part of a successful combined 20m bid with National Museums Liverpool, and 6.6m from the DCMS Public Bodies Infrastructure Fund. The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority also awarded funding for the developmental phase of the project via its Strategic Investment Fund.
