Already residing in the prestigious Grade I listed Royal Liver building, Tilney Best Invest (TBI) wanted to relocate within the same building but across one whole floor to align with future expansion plans.


Last refurbished a decade ago, the base build required major CAT A refurbishment to meet office fit out building regulations.


GTA completed CAT A and CAT B works under one main contract coordinating mechanical and electrical design with TBI’s employer requirements and design layout from the outset.


GTA consulted English Heritage from early concept design right through to construction ensuring a smooth and quick approval process.


A new accessible suspended ceiling and raised floor was installed throughout whilst retaining the impressive 4.2m ceiling height at the perimeter. The perimeter detail maximises natural daylight and reveals original Baroque-like details.

Meeting rooms feature foldable walls offering flexible room configurations for training, board meetings and corporate events. Selected heritage furniture feature in meeting rooms, which, teamed with views overlooking the Mersey River provide the office with heritage and iconic status.


Other business heirlooms and paintings feature and influence the office design throughout. GTA created bespoke graphics and a 3D timeline wall in reception comprised of floating walnut building bricks. With engraved business milestones/key events the bricks symbolise Tilney Best Invest’s USP, a financial planning firm that builds on a heritage of more than 150 years.
