Cordant Projects, part of the Cordant Group, recently played a key role in the completion of a new £1.5m Family Attraction Centre on Merseyside, the first of its kind in Europe. The company carried out the role of Principal Contractor throughout the construction phase of the ‘Mattel Play! Liverpool’ development, which was opened by attraction operator Heritage Great Britain at the Albert Dock in March.

During the five-month scheme, Cordant Projects was responsible for the procurement, installation and management of all Builders Works packages including demolition, plastering, partitioning, decoration, ply decking and soft floor packages. This involved the construction of all internal walls and protective flooring within the 13,000 square foot building to create the main attraction areas, a reception, back offices, toilets, baby changing facilities and a servery area. In addition, Cordant Projects was able to utilise its in-house capabilities to design and install all the Mechanical & Electrical aspects of the project, including heating & cooling, air conditioning, ventilation, background lighting, fire alarms and an intruder alarm with a CCTV system to ensure the site remains secure at all times. As the family entertainment centre is within a Grade II listed building and therefore subject to stringent conservation laws, Cordant Projects worked closely with the relevant local authorities during each stage of the development to ensure all regulations were met.

Upon completion of the Builders Work phase, the client instructed Cordant to oversee the project management of the installation of the attraction’s facilities, based on children’s brands including Bob the Builder, Thomas & Friends and Fireman Sam. Finnish-based Lappset Group carried out the installation of the attractions. As Cordant Projects was working alongside an overseas partner that normally adheres to a different set of building regulations, the company had to create new relationships whilst providing a daily management and advisory facility for Lappset to ensure all aspects of the current regulations were achieved.

Allen Leech, CEO at Heritage Great Britain, said: “After months of planning and preparation, we are delighted to reveal this new concept which is a first for Liverpool. Everyone’s pulled together to make this happen and we are grateful to all our city partners, along with Lappset and their team from Finland who built the attraction. Throughout the duration of the project we have been impressed with all elements of the work delivered by the team at Cordant Projects. The end result is something we all can be very proud of.”

Ian Woods, Managing Director at Cordant Technical, said: “During the construction and development of Mattel Play! Liverpool we have been able to further demonstrate our ability to deliver exceptional levels of service, whilst completing major projects on time and to budget. This continues to be a significant reason behind our growth and ongoing success.”
