Facility Management
Value: £27,039

Port sunlight on the Wirral Peninsula, was developed as a model village for factory workers and their families by the visionary industrialist Lord Leverhulme.

With over 300 Grade II listed buildings, Port Sunlight became a designated Conservation area 30 years ago and may in future be listed as a World Heritage Site.


Project Work

Bell Group was chosen for their ability to provide a team of highly-skilled tradesmen to carry out redecoration and conservation work, using a wide range of specialist techniques that always meets the exacting criteria of the Trust. The houses, schools, concert hall, cottage hospital, swimming pool, church, art gallery and temperance hotel were the work of almost 30 architects, creating a sense of delightfully diverse and spacious streetscapes featuring decorative half-timbered frontages, ornamental plasterwork and carved woodwork, mouldings and leaded windows.

End Result

Today, the integrity of the village is vigorously protected by the Village Trust who works to preserve its unique character and ambience. It is of immense importance to them that the original standards of craftsmanship are maintained.
