Solid Oak Market Stalls

The vision driving the new market was to be a ‘modern traditional market’ that is good for the people of Chester.

Client Requirements

The driving force behind the new Chester market had been to create a ‘modern traditional market’ that takes the best of the new breed of thriving city produce markets from around the world; combined with pioneering communal food hall markets, to create a unique blend of produce, goods, food and beverage traders in a welcoming and inclusive space for everyone to enjoy – where you really can shop local and eat global!

The new Chester Market brand has been designed to be distinctive, memorable and exuberant; inspired by Chester’s heritage combined with a modern touch.

Hardwoods Group Solid Oak provided the perfect structure for the required market stalls

Our Solution

Working with our client, Medlock FRB, all the market stalls where constructed of seasoned oak beams, jointed and prepared using our CNC production facility.  The finished product was an impressive display of craftmanship and we believe it entirely fulfils the desire for ‘heritage with a modern touch’

The timeless nature of the substantial oak beams are a fitting compliment to the traditional but modern environment required by the market.

The project required over 60tonne of oak to be manufactured and due to the timescales for the project, we were left with only a very small window for design, production and delivery.
