£130m residential development at Wirral Waters celebrates ‘topping out’ milestone
Miller's Quay topping out ceremony at Wirral Waters

Miller’s Quay at Wirral Waters, has reached a special milestone in its construction of 500 highly sustainable one- and two-bedroom waterfront apartments. 

The developer of Wirral Waters, Peel L&P, was joined on Thursday, 8 June, by its funding partner, construction firm, Homes England, Wirral Council, and staff and students from Wirral Met College, to celebrate the ‘topping out’ of what is the single biggest development to date at the UK’s largest and most sustainable regeneration project. 

The topping out ceremony marks reaching the highest point in the construction of the transformational residential development. 

In addition to its high levels of sustainability, Miller’s Quay is also delivering significant social value with 100 affordable new homes included and a wide range of unique learning and employment opportunities for the local community. 

Since construction began last July, 319 students from Wirral Met College have already benefitted from the ‘live’ classroom on its doorstep where students are taking part in a number of activities and learning a wide range of skills. 

By collaborating with the employers involved within the wider Wirral Waters regeneration project, Wirral Met College has been able to review its curriculum to ensure its provision is directly aligned to the needs and demands across the modern construction industry. 

Students are also benefitting from work experience opportunities through the construction of Miller’s Quay, providing genuine insight of how the industry works and the level of interaction which takes place between trades within a major scale regeneration project. 

Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development for Peel L&P’s Wirral Waters, said: “We have reached an exciting milestone with the topping out of Miller’s Quay. This has been a fantastic day to reflect on everything that has been achieved so far and to celebrate the significant social impact this project is already having on the local community, thanks to the strong partnership that has been created by Peel L&P, GRAHAM, PIC and Wirral Met College. 

“I have been really proud and humbled to see the students engaged in learning on site over the last ten months and knowing that they are learning about modern and green methods of construction for these energy and resource efficient new homes, is incredibly reassuring in our ambition to create the construction workforce of the future.” 

Leader of Wirral Council, Cllr Paul Stuart, said: “Millers Quay is an important part of Wirral’s wider regeneration ambitions which stretch from Bromborough through Birkenhead and Wirral Waters, Seacombe and Liscard to New Brighton and shows the how we are delivering on our brownfield first approach to boosting the borough and providing homes, jobs and prosperity. We demonstrate that Wirral can be the best place to start and grow our families and businesses.”
