The Challenge

Following the successful refurbishment of Glasgow’s Fish Market, our client approached us to lead a design team to deliver a new fish market at Manchester’s historic Smithfield Market. A key parameter of the brief was to ensure that the existing fish market could continue trading while the new facility was being constructed.

The Response

G. D. Lodge were engaged through the entire process from inception to delivery, involving a complex procurement process. The replacement building was designed on a modular basis but with flexibility to accommodate a broad range of possible unit sizes. Tenant requirements were fully met through bespoke fitout designs, but working within the parameters of the modular shell.
