The first phase of the £2.7m refurbishment project for the Grade II listed Trinity Market has been handed over. The project, procured via open tender and awarded by The Hull Esteem Consortium on behalf of the Hull City Council involved a lot of up front logistical work as all of the stall holders had to be moved into the arcade due to the site remaining live with traders and customers. Early engagement and continuous commutation ensured this transition was successful.
Over the 56 week phased project the following works were carried out:-
PHASE 1 - Market
· Decant Stalls in Market area to temporary stalls in arcade.
· Isolation of Services/ Demolition and soft Strip/ Install Platform below Lantern
· First fix M&E and Joinery/ Construct new stud Walls to Market area/ installation of Mezzanine floor and Staircase
· Replace Lanterns/ Installation of Glazed Screens & Bi-Fold doors to North Church side and Trinity Lane Entrance/ 2nd fix M&E and Joinery
· High and low level Decoration/ Fit out toilet area including Tiling/installation of roller shutters to stalls.
· Installation of the public realm to all of Market place.
· 3rd fix to all traders/ Floor finishes installed / builders clean
· Decant of Stalls in arcade back to Market area.
We are now working on Phase 2 within the Arcade where we have commenced with the following:-
PHASE 2 - Arcade
