The Watch Factory, Prescot

Robinson Manufacturing (RML) is delighted to be working with Vistry, supplying a joint truss and joist package to the ongoing development of the Watch Factory development in Prescot.

First deliveries were in May 2021, and the site is expected to be completed in 2023.

All 88 plots (80 family homes and 8 bungalows) are all for partnership housing, delivered by Vistry to the Livv Housing Group, providing a mix of affordable rent, shared ownership, rent to buy and older peoples accommodation in Prescot near Liverpool.

The local area has a strong historic character set by the Grade II listed Watch Factory building located to the south of the site. Originally the home of the Lancashire Watch Company, the factory is a significant part of Prescot’s local history and was converted into an extra-care scheme in 2018.

The industrial language of the factory combined with the existing terraced streets has given the site a unique character which has been built on in Phase 2 to create a development that has a strong relationship with the existing neighbourhood and provides a mixed housing community.

The development, shortlisted for the Housing Design Awards, includes 3 apartment buildings and 88 houses. The new mixed tenure family housing brings a different vibrancy to the site to complete the regeneration of a former industrial area into a complete residential community.
