Liverpool Waterfront Passenger Facilities

Two separate projects providing passenger waiting and boarding facilities for both the International Cruise Liner Terminal and the Mersey Ferries Terminal at the world famous Pier Head.

  • The cruise liner project involved two buildings, located on either end of the new floating liner pontoon, to receive, shelter and organise the transfer of cruise passengers arriving in Liverpool.
  • The second project, also built on a floating tidal pontoon linked to the shore by footbridges, was to design a passenger terminal together with a fire and rescue station providing inshore rescue facilities.
  • Both schemes required careful organisation of transfer routes and passenger flows to ensure efficient and speedy transfer of large numbers of passengers whilst maintaining shelter and safety at all times
  • The buildings are located in a highly sensitive World Heritage Site and in an extremely challenging exposed marine environment.
