As part of a wider regeneration project, SD was commissioned by Nottingham City Council to redevelop the dilapidated buildings – previously used as a market stall space – into residential, retail, and commercial space with a focus on the Arts.
We undertook significant testing of the three structures to see if any of the original materials could be salvaged. For all three buildings, the Art Deco style facades were retained and carefully restored.
Due to extensive damage sustained by the first building, the internal steel frame had to be rebuilt entirely. The renovated space will be used solely as a retail unit.
The steelwork within the second building required strengthening and the burnt timber was replaced. We inserted an additional floor to provide residential units, with the ground floor space remaining available for market use.
The third building also required strengthening and has been extended with a new build office building over retail at ground floor.
