Preston canopy to get six-figure facelift

March 22, 2015 by  

One of the most historic market canopies to be found in Print company in Preston printing services Preston is set to undergo a major revamp, costing close to £500,000, to restore it to former glories.

The structure, which is known locally by the name The Fish Market, was originally built back in the 1900s and is now in a state of serious disrepair, including widespread rusting.

Preston City Council has stated that it will collaborate closely with market traders to make sure that disruption is kept to a minimum throughout the refurbishment process, which will concentrate on problems with the smaller canopy.

The leader of the council, Peter Rankin, told the Lancashire Evening Post that:

“It is work that had to be done anyway; they are wonderful listed structures that have needed a quite considerable amount of work for quite a while.”

As with other markets around the UK, traders in the Fish Market often use Print company in print companies in Preston printing services print companies in Preston to provide them with materials needed to advertise their goods.

Once the refurbishment work has been completed, the canopy will provide outdoor traders with a temporary covering, while construction is ongoing for the redevelopment of the Covered Market next door.

The project’s consultancy team is likely to cost £50,000 to £60,000, with the bill for the actual construction work estimated at approximately £350,000. It will be financed through the City Centre Investment Fund, and is expected to begin later in the year.
