New Contract - Indoor Market Relocation
16th Nov 2015New Contracts
Summit have been awarded the M&E Installation for the Relocation of Wolverhampton City’s Markets.
City of Wolverhampton Council has confirmed the relocation of the city's markets will be completed in March after appointing Speller Metcalfe as the main contractor to carry out the works.
It signals another phase in the changing face of Westside, which recently went to market as a major development opportunity.
The timing of the markets switchover minimises disruption and means all market stall holders (indoor and outdoor) can remain trading where they currently are until the works are finished.
The existing indoor market and Heantun House will be demolished, while the outdoor markets are to be re-invigorated and modernised, with purpose built cabins adding to the existing stalls.
The new market will house 46 licensed outdoor stalls and 22 casual outdoor stalls, which will be enclosed by 16 cabins.
Summit will be responsible for the complete Mechanical & Electrical Installation with works commencing early in the New Year 2016.
