Gone are the days when Liverpool Waterfront’s architecture was characterised by nought but the bold Three Graces – a number of buildings have sprung up alongside them, not least the Wilkinson Eyre Echo Arena and BT Convention Centre. Now, linked to these via a 35m sky bridge, are the £66 million Denton Corker Marshall Exhibition Centre and 216-room luxury Pullman Hotel, which opened fully to the public earlier this year. Kawneer’s AA®100 mullion-drained curtain walling, 451PT thermally broken framing system and AA®720 HI tilturn windows helped create the distinctive facade in an attempt to keep the Liver buildings on their toes.
