We have been appointed by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council to deliver the £36m redevelopment of Rotherham Markets and an adjacent new library, forming a key part of the wider town centre masterplan.

The project comprises a major refurbishment and redevelopment of the existing indoor and outdoor Rotherham Markets. This will include creating a vibrant new food hall and dining area on the first level above the existing ground floor retail, in addition to new workspace for charities, social enterprises and voluntary groups on the second floor.

While the refurbished adjoining outdoor market will continue to be used predominantly as a market for local traders, it will also be redeveloped for use as a multi-functional space to host exhibitions and community events. A new library will also be built to offer a café, meeting rooms and flexible gallery space.

As part of our objective to make a positive impact in the region, we have committed to deliver significant social value, employing local subcontractors, creating jobs and delivering training initiatives during construction.

The contract was procured and awarded through the Crown Commercial Services’ (CCS) Construction Works and Associated Services framework.

We are pleased to be partnering with the Council on its Rotherham Markets scheme and helping to bring new life into such a fundamental part of the town’s heritage and identity. Creating vibrant spaces and delivering progressive change in our region is part of our DNA, having led on major urban regeneration projects in Barnsley and Sheffield over recent years.

Andrew Bramidge, Interim Strategic Director for Regeneration & Environment, Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, said: “We’re delighted to secure Henry Boot Construction as our partner in delivering this latest regeneration project in our historic town centre. Their building expertise will help breathe life into our detailed plans for this key location and produce an impressive new venue for present and future generations to enjoy.”
