Conversion of Grade II listed Victorian market hall and square

We were appointed as full service architects on the renovation of the existing market square and Victorian market hall in Cheadle following an architectural competition. The project was to provide listed building consent, planning and building regulations and conservation strategy and repair advice. The design incorporated renovation of the existing market square and Victorian market hall. The project received Lottery Heritage funding.

Key features

  • Establishing a clear client brief - this was particularly important as this development was considered of historical importance. The market traders were extremely anxious about any form of development and in some cases quite onerous requirements.
  • Identifying risks to the project, innovating and mitigating risks, for example, restoration of the existing elaborate cast iron.
  • Establishing pragmatic, sustainable and solutions focused on requirements. Intensive liaison and meetings took place with the market traders.
  • Maintaining the historical integrity through careful restoration and offer the market traders viable stalls.
