Site visit to Derby heritage project
The 1866 building will be a key retail hub in the city’s Cathedral Quarter
Nottingham Hub members were treated to a site visit around the historic Derby Market Hall, courtesy of Wates Construction.
The Grade II listed building, opened in 1866, is home to a vibrant mix of bustling traditional and contemporary stalls. The plans to transform the market are part of the city centre masterplan and the improved market will be a key retail and community hub in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter.
Phase 1 is now under way, with the building fully enclosed by scaffolding – internally and externally – which laid end to end would stretch 12 miles.
The evening was hosted by Phil Evans MCIOB, construction manager with Wates.
Scaffolding is in place both inside and outside the building
