Carmody Groarke's new interim Maggie's Centre has been shortlisted for the 2015 AJ Retrofit Awards in the Health category. AJ Retrofit Awards recognise projects that set new standards for the retrofitting and refurbishment of buildings.
The construction of the Centre takes advantage of radically improvised and transformed site cabin structures arranged efficiently together around the position of mature trees on the site.
Maggie's Merseyside at Clatterbridge is the first temporary centre to be realised and has created a place of support for patients and their families until a permanent Maggie's Centre is delivered in central Liverpool.
