Client: Freewood Building Contractors

Architect: Denovo Design Ltd

Häfele products Used: Architectural Ironmongery

Building Type: Church

The Award-winning redevelopment of the beloved St Matthew & St James Church in Liverpool centred on creating a functional, accessible and engaging space for the local community to enjoy. The extension and refurbishment work, which centred on sustainability, enhanced existing facilities whilst adding a new café area and bathroom facilities.

Häfele were proud to supply a range of Architectural Ironmongery solutions to the project, including:

  • High Grade Butt Hinges
  • Mortice Deadlocks, Stainless Steel
  • Guardsman Pull Handles
  • Flush Pull Handles
  • Fire Door Mandatory Signs

It was important to the client that the products supplied were hard-wearing and low-profile, in order to fit the aesthetic and withstand constant use. Accessibility was also a key consideration, so the new entrance was built to be fully accessible, with DDA compliance.

The project maximized the Church’s multi-functionality; accessibility, and, ultimately, the effectiveness of community engagement.

The project entailed:

  • Reconfiguration of the main church
  • Development of a services/refreshment pod
  • Development of a new community cafe bar
  • Extension and refurbishment of the existing Church Hall
  • Development of a new access road and car park, with added vehicle entrance & exit
  • The project was recognised with two awards at the International Green Apple Built Environment and Architectural Heritage Awards 2018 - hosted by the Green Organisation.
