No1 Market Street
Opened by Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, Number One Market Street is seen as a ‘signal of the town’s re-birth’. Situated adjacent to the historic Town Hall, traditional detailing combined with clean design provides a welcome new landmark building to the town. The state-of-the-art building is one of many new and tremendous opportunities being created locally. The majority of the building is occupied by Liberata, with remaining offices available for rent, together with ground floor retail units.
Working with the design team, we were responsible for procuring the site investigation and the full design of the foundations, steel frame, structural fabric and associated civil design. Despite the site having varied, but shallow ground conditions and relic cellars, the foundations were all simple concrete pads. The major challenge on this project was the fast track design programme, coupled with designing radial steelwork, with limited internal columns.
