Paramount’s Latest Project in the North West
Paramount Timber Frame are delighted to be involved in this stunning scheme in the North of England.
Work is beginning on the £20m project to transform an Edwardian mansion and former home for retired seafarers in Wirral into a new residential development.
In 2018, Wirral developer Prospect Capital put forward a plan to restore Andrew Gibson House, close to the Mersey at Egremeont as part of a scheme comprising apartments, townhouses and purpose-built accommodation for retired seafarers.
The site’s former owners Nautilus Welfare Fund had been trying to find a use for the building following its closure and has been the subject of a number of stalled rescue and renovation plans.
The project to the historic property, part of the Mariner’s Park Estate, on the Wallasey Waterfront was supported by local politicians, heritage campaigners and a public petition with more than 6,000 signatures.
Nautilus, a local registered charity serving seafarers and their dependants, backed Prospect’s plan to convert it into apartments. Wirral Council’s planning committee gave its consent.
