Ramboll is to lead the technical team for the development of a new £50M cruise terminal on the River Mersey in Liverpool.
Ramboll has been appointed by Liverpool City Council to work on the detailed design in its capacity as technical advisor, working up to submitting the planning application on the former Princes Jetty site (pictured). It will be about 300m north of the existing one, with the capacity to take larger cruise ships capable of carrying up to 3,600 passengers. If planning permission is granted, Ramboll will project manage construction and support contractor procurement.
The team includes architects Stride Treglown, planning and property consultants JLL, and landscape architects Hyland Edgar Driver.
The new facilities will include passport control, transport drop off and pick up points, a café and toilets.
“The cruise ship terminal project is one of vital importance to the city, and will secure the future of this new cornerstone in Liverpool’s economy,” said Ramboll project manager Dave Grove.
