Contractor: Longworth Building Services
Project: Derby Market Hall

Award sponsor:Keymer logo


Originally built in 1864 and located in Derby’s Cathedral Quarter, the Market Hall is one of the city’s most culturally important buildings, which today plays host to a range of independent market traders. To extend the building’s lifespan and to counter structural deterioration that has sometimes forced temporary closure, the contractor designed, supplied and installed new standing-seam copper roofing to the central spine of the roof and the four tapered curved corners. All four hipped corners of the barrel-vaulted structure were slightly different which presented setting out challenges on site. The contractor carried out all work without disturbing internal works or market stalls. The judges were also impressed that the contractor had three apprentices working on the project.
