The Royal Liver Building (pronounced ˈlaɪvə) is one of the city of Liverpool’s most recognisable landmarks. It stands at 90 metres (295 feet) and has 13 floors. Since its completion in 1911, it has overlooked the River Mersey from its waterfront location on the Pier Head and forms one of the ‘Three Graces’ along with the Port of Liverpool Building and the Cunard Building. It was designed in 1908 by Walter Aubrey Thomas, built by Edmund Nuttall and is one of the earliest examples of multi-storey reinforced concrete construction.1 This is reflected in the building’s Grade I listed building status.
