The newly built iconic Everyman Theatre in Liverpool has been awarded RIBA's prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize 2014. The main contractor Gilbert Ash and architect Haworth Tompkins chose to use our Insulite Premier concrete blocks from our William Rainford (Holdings) Ltd production facility at Aintree in this construction.
Work is now underway to replace our existing William Rainford Ltd concrete block plant in Aintree, Merseyside with a brand new multi-million pound turn-key factory using the very latest state-of-the-art technology. This high tech, high volume facility will replace our existing plant, more than doubling production capacity and significantly expanding the range of products manufactured.
