Tom Reilly Building, Liverpool

Austin-Smith: Lord had already commenced a review of the University’s City Campus and in April 2007 was commissioned to design the new, state-of-the-art faculty building (Phase 1) to reside within the masterplan of the Byrom Street campus. This project was fast-tracked and was delivered in just two years.

Within the restricted site, 6500m² of accommodation had to be provided for a wide-range of purposes: specialist bio-mechanics laboratories, a 60 metre running track, environment chambers, general teaching laboratories, classrooms and staff offices.

The University is delighted with The Tom Reilly Building. The design team produced an exceptional building and their dedication to the project meant that it was delivered in just over two years. Having already produced three RIBA Award-winning buildings for LJMU, The Tom Reilly building now forms part of the successful partnership history we have with Austin-Smith:Lord.
