Property services provider Styles&Wood has won a £2.8m contract to complete the fit-out of a 25,500 sq ft market in Warrington’s Time Square.
The appointment by Warrington Borough Council represents the latest step in the three-year, £107m Bridge Street regeneration project.
The contract involves creating space for approximately 55 retail units for the town’s businesses. The space will be used as temporary retail accommodation while the town’s market hall is developed as part of the wider regeneration.
In addition to creating the internal layout, Styles&Wood will also oversee mechanical and electrical works, provide furnishings, fittings and equipment, and complete final finishes. The six-month long project is set to be completed in the summer of 2017 with the market scheduled to open on 29 August.
Once the regeneration of the hall on Bridge Street is finished in 2019, it is envisaged that the temporary market will then be converted into a permanent retail space for the town.
