This restoration project has carefully repaired and refurbished Queen Victoria Market’s open-air sheds, providing a new, insulated roof and upgrading the services to improve the market experience for both traders and visitors.
NH undertook a full, component by component review of the shed structures, repairing and strengthening each individual column, beam, and truss to improve the structural integrity and longevity of the heritage sheds. We sensitively integrated new structural interventions and elements including an insulated roof system throughout, while maintaining the heritage appearance.
Underground trenches were introduced to hold essential services, increasing the reliability of utilities for traders and improving the overall functionality of the market.
NH worked closely with the City of Melbourne, Queen Victoria Market and Heritage Victoria to restore this National and Victorian listed heritage site to maintain its intrinsic and intangible value and ensure its longevity into the future.
