urrently nearing completion, the new £40 million gateway scheme in Liverpool's Lime Street features

opposite Liverpool’s mainline station. Anthony Brown calls his design a “Quantum Timeline”, having meticulously researched the area's history from Victorian times to the present day. Themes represented in the murals include

the story of how Lime Street got its name, the Beatles’ song Maggie May, the famous old Guinness Clock and the ABC and Scala Super Cinemas. Each mural is LED backlit at night to create an even more stunning effect. All this has been made possible by one

of the most creative ever utilisations of Ash & Lacy’s Perforated Metal Facade screens, VariAL CF2 concealed fix rainscreen cladding system attached to a steel frame system (SFS) via the AxiAL rainscreen support system. Installation was performed by Keyclad Limited for main contractor ISG PLC. SFS installation was carried out by Blugyp Ltd. The 3mm powder coated aluminium panels were perforated in two layers

according to the artist’s intricate design using high precision CNC punching. The end result is absolutely stunning and a fine demonstration of the extremely versatile capabilities of this solution.
