Following a two-stage tender process, Nobles were appointed to carry out the construction of the first newly built monastery in Merseyside in over one hundred years; indeed the largest purpose built Monastery in Europe (30,882sqft).

The new monastery saw nuns from the Carmelite Sisters order relocated from their current monastery in West Derby and other locations in the UK to a more secluded location based in Allerton.​

The three storey building houses residential facilities, a steel framed central chapel, nursing facilities, and visitors’ center. The building has been traditionally constructed in masonry, with intricate details in the facade work and a Welsh slate tiled roof.​

Externally, an ornamental lake was formed, with extensive landscaping including new tree planting areas, areas for growing crops and various hard landscaping elements.​

With over half a million facing bricks this scheme won the 2013 National Brickwork Award.​
