Sensor City Liverpool

Liverpool John Moores University and the University of Liverpool have created a Joint Venture company, Sensor City Liverpool Ltd, to deliver a purpose designed Sensor-systems Business Innovation Facility focused on creating, nurturing and establishing commercially viable, hi-tech companies.

The Vision

To create a technical innovation centre and a University Enterprise Zone which fosters the creation, development, production and promotion of cutting edge sensor technologies for use in a wide range of sectors. The building incorporates a range of flexible laboratory, office and collaboration spaces.

The project is funded though the European Regional Development Fund (£5m); the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (£5m) with co-investment from the two Universities and private sector.

Our Role

We provided full Project Management and Employer's Agent services including heling to develop a viable Business Case to present to funders; managing the briefing process and emerging design to ensure Sensor City Liverpool Objectives were achieved and the building was fit for purpose; appointment of specialist consultants; and extensive Stakeholder Management.
