THE DEDICATED SMALL FIRMS HELPING US BUILD STORETON HALL

Unlike most developers who feature standard house types throughout the country we do things differently.

 Every PJ Livesey development is unique and so every home is designed specifically for each new site, fitting in with the surroundings and neighbouring buildings and respecting the heritage.

 A perfect example is Storeton Hall on the Wirral which features a Scheduled Ancient Monument dating back to 1372 and two historic red brick barns. A small number of new build homes are being built within the walled grounds and have been designed to reflect the setting next to the second oldest building on the peninsular.

 Built from beautiful quarried stone these homes – both new and converted – are unique inside and out and that represents a huge challenge for our technicians, managers, suppliers and contractors.

 PJ Livesey director Craig Lynch said: “We have massive respect for our teams and especially our sub-contractors many of whom have worked with us for a very long time, building up a relationship of trust and an understanding of our exacting standards.

 “When the owner of a firm is actively on site, getting their hands dirty, walking the plot and planning logistics with our technicians and other trades to ensure a property is completed to the very highest standards, then we know we have the right specialist teams to work alongside our own

 “I have seen that day in and day out at Storeton Hall. People going above and beyond to meet our expectations and it shows. These are lovely new build homes, wonderfully built and the site is looking amazing.

 “When all the new build homes are complete in another six months or so all the attention will turn to Storeton Hall and it will be a privilege working alongside these teams on something so special.”

 Special mention to:

 Dolphin Decoration – The Liverpool based company has been a trusted partner of PJ Livesey for more than 20 years, working on a huge range of landmark projects across the North West. Owner Gary Turner said: “I like working for them. The standards required are very high and all respect to Peter Livesey because he inspects every single property and knows every inch of a site. It has to be right. We are only a small team and enjoy the interesting projects they take on and the very active, personal approach.”

 SSDL Dry Liners – The firms’ first PJ Livesey contract was working on the conversion of Lancaster Moor – a vast project where each property was unique. Contracts manager Darren SIlcock said: “Because of the nature of what PJL do we work very closely with their technicians and the project engineers because old buildings always throw up the unexpected. We liaise with other trades so the work runs smoothly and it is hugely satisfying – especially on the conversion schemes.”

 Eltom Electrical – Founded three years ago by electricians Phill Lewis and Michael Raynor, Storeton Hall is the firms’ first PJ Livesey project. Phil said: “We are based on the Wirral and having noticed the up and coming development we were keen to get involved in the restoration of an important local landmark, and so were delighted to have been awarded the contract following an invitation to tender. We have worked on listed buildings before so understand the restrictions and limitations they can pose and love a challenge. We like that the same care is demanded on the new builds and they have a keen eye for detail – as do we.”
