Approval given for Denton Corker Marshall's Exhibition Centre and Hotel in Liverpool, UK

Planning has been approved for the £40m Exhibition Centre on Liverpool’s historical Kings Docks. The project, designed by Denton Corker Marshall, is due to go on site in January 2014.

Located alongside the existing ACC Liverpool in the UK, home to BT Convention Centre and Echo Arena, the new Exhibition Centre Liverpool facility will be open for business in 2015. The exhibition centre will also include a hotel with 216 bedrooms and an elevated high level walkway to the existing BT Convention Centre.

Stephen Quinlan, Senior Partner at Denton Corker Marshall LLP, said: " We are delighted that the project has successfully passed this important milestone and we look forward to the completion of these new world class facilities."

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “This is fantastic news for Liverpool. I’ve pushed this project hard from the beginning, because I know the huge economic benefits it will bring to our city, attracting new visitors, boosting local business and creating jobs.”
