Capita selects Encasement for new Blackburn Indoor Market

The indoor market at a new £66 million retail development in Blackburn has turned to Encasement to help provide a shopper-friendly environment by concealing 50 structural steel columns with Circa and Quadra pre-formed plywood column casings.

Located on the ground floor of this major retail development, Blackburn Indoor Market is regarded by many as the most modern market in the UK and provides more than 120 plots for market traders to sell their wares to shoppers and visitors to the centre.

As the modern and spacious market demanded a contemporary and stylish interior, the circular and square column casings, some of which stand 5.0 metres high, are all finished in a durable ‘Polar White’ Formica laminate, which not only reflects light within the building but also provides high resistance to scuffs and damage in high traffic retail environments.

Within the market, the 12 mm thick Circa and Quadra casings are not only used to conceal the structural steelwork but also hide perimeter building services and act as a location for mounting fire alarm actuators and interior safety lighting.

The new Blackburn Market development is one of a growing number of UK retailers using our Circa, Quadra, Forma, Metza and Polyma column casing products, which include ASDA, Browns of Beverley, Halfords, Kwik Fit, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons and Tesco.
