Hannan’s were appointed to work on the first scheme for the design of Liverpool Football Club’s new stadium during 2007 with AFL Architects.
Then following the sale of Liverpool Football club to the new American owners we were appointed to design the building services for their new unique stadium design up to BSRIA Stage E. We worked closely with Architects HKS and the wider design team.
Our role included managing sub consultancies for Information Technology, acoustic, pitch advertising, and outside broadcast systems. Design development and progress was structured using the RIBA stage reporting process and carefully managed through coordination meetings. Our team was supplemented by a coordination engineer with a specific task of integration of the many complex technology and physical services. Using 3d modelling and design coordination meetings the services were integrated in and around the complex structure.
The team developed value engineering opportunities and worked closely with sub-contractors to achieve budget targets. Sustainability was at the forefront of the design development process and included technologies such as maximization free cooling and natural ventilation where possible. The renewable technology options including options for the inclusion of biomass boiler plant, ground source heat pumps, and Rainwater recovery.
