MEP Systems Ltd. was appointed to assist Ryearch Builders Ltd. in undertaking an extensive refurbishment of Plymouth Market.
Site Context: Previously known as the Pannier Market, Plymouth Market is a high-profile building and an important civic asset. Acknowledged as one of the most unique structures in the south west, the wave like roof profile and the building’s geometry have achieved grade II listed building status and a Civic Trust award.
Plymouth Market gets over a million visitors each year, making it one of the busiest markets in the country. The stalls and perimeter shops support 200+ jobs and the market is based within a busy commercial shopping area.
In order to meet the aim of making the market a ‘major focus for the regeneration of the West End’, a comprehensive refurbishment plan was devised.
