The project involved the renovation and expansion of the Municipal Market in Nicosia.
The existing building consisted of both traditional and conventional materials which have been restored and preserved. The space has been reorganized, with new divisions in place, all of which have full air-conditioning and have been upgraded in terms of hygiene standards. The old building houses butchers, fishmongers and grocery stores.
The expansion of the project included a new building, consisting of a basement made from reinforced concrete, which houses the engine room and bathrooms; and a structure made from metal with glass windows and modern shading facilities which houses the market area and cafeteria.
Outside parking spaces have been created for both the public and shopkeepers, with access to the property. Improved power supply and water management (wastewater, rainwater and drainage) are also in place.
The project was completed according to the agreed timetable, was executed in two phases so the market continued to operate as usual for existing tenants during works.
