Wirral Council has appointed Manchester construction consultancy Walker Sime onto the Birkenhead 2040 Framework, a radical 20-year vision for the future of the town.
The company has been appointed to provide Project Management (PM), Quantity Surveying (QS) and Program Manager Office (PMO) services for a transformative three-year programme of regeneration, initially working on two projects.
The £18 million Dock Branch Park & Transport Shed project will transform disused railway cuttings into a world-class urban park returning the space to the people and visitors of Birkenhead, while the £10m remodelling of the Woodside Gyratory will unlock the Woodside Waterfront area of Birkenhead.
Matthew Edwards, Walker Sime’s Senior Project Manager said, “We are delighted to be supporting Wirral Council in delivering these fantastic regeneration projects in support of its vision for 2040.
“This tender win builds on our existing project relationships with the council and further strengthens our reputation as a trusted delivery partner for local authorities in north-west England.”
Both regeneration projects are funded through routes including the Town Fund Deal, Levelling Up Fund, Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and Wirral Council matched funding.
