Basildon Market Relocation

Basildon Market Relocation




The construction of a new marketplace in Basildon. Prefabricated cabins are to be placed on foundations designed by Pure Structures and a new service building is being built. The market is due to open Autumn 2017.

This project has been a demonstration of Murphy’s law, requiring multiple re-designs due to unforeseen obstacles on the market square. Careful design of the foundations in the square and for the service building was required, due to the poor quality of the ground on site.

The drainage scheme for the market square was complex, as each cabin required individual water supply and removal, along with electricity supply and internet connection. Fitting all of these in the limited space available was a challenge and also required many revisions.
