Morgan Sindall have awarded Cara Brickwork the masonry package on the new £35m northern headquarters of the Royal College of Physicians which will be known officially as The Spine, taking its name from a striking staircase on its north elevation that resembles human vertebrae.

The 160,000 sq ft building in Knowledge Quarter Liverpool will be one of the healthiest workspaces for mental and physical wellbeing in the UK and among the first to achieve the international WELL standard of modern building design when it opens its doors in 2020.

Cara will commence on site in early May with the works expected to last for 8 weeks.
