LIPA seeks 8,000 sq ft extension
Plans submitted to Liverpool City Council would see the performing arts college off Upper Duke Street increase in size to accommodate 110 more students.
MMA Design & Project Management has drawn up the plans for the 8,000 sq ft extension to the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts’ sixth form building.
The extension will wrap around LIPA’s existing Willy Russell Studio Theatre and reach up to three storeys at its tallest point.
On the ground floor, students would find two practice rooms, a 100 sq ft medical room, and a 900 sq ft social learning area.
Moving up the first floor, there would be a 900 sq ft live music and a 300 sq ft music practice room, as well as a 900 sq ft resource centre.
Another four 300 sq ft music practice rooms and another 900 sq ft resource space would be provided on the third floor.
Peter Hamilton Planning Consultancy is advising LIPA on the proposals. The project team also includes Prime Transport Planning, EnviroSolution, EAT Landscape, The Environment Partnership, Liath Heritage, and Soiltechnics.
