Tate Liverpool seeks contractor for £29m revamp

A bid race has begun for the delivery of the reimagined grade one-listed gallery at Royal Albert Dock.

The scheme will reveal more of the building’s history as a Victorian warehouse.

Firms have until 17 July to express their interest in delivering the project, which is expected to take 17 months.

Designed by London-based 6a Architects, the project will see the introduction of an Art Hall at Tate Liverpool, as well as an events space and new exhibition areas.

Tate revealed its plans for the transformation in May, which also include enhanced panoramic views of the River Mersey and a new ground-floor exhibition space visible from the dockside.

Additional gallery spaces will be created across three floors, along with double-height galleries to accommodate larger works.

Funding for the £29m project includes £10m of government levelling up money, as well as £6.6m from the DCMS Estates Maintenance Fund.

The Liverpool City Region Combined Authority funded the early developmental phase of the project through its Strategic Investment Fund.

Thought they were closing in October so they need to get a move on, a bit of an inconvenience for members who only visit locally as if you’re in the middle of a membership year I’ve heard nothing about a credit or refund.
