Franke provide bespoke sinks for redevelopment of historic wool market
Franke was thrilled to be chosen to supply a range of bespoke stainless steel sinks for the redevelopment of the Doncaster Wool Market which will open in Spring 2019. New designs for the famous Wool Market were unveiled and more than £3 million was secured to revamp the jewel in the crown of Doncaster's town centre: the award-winning marketplace.
HE Barnes, Sheffield, were awarded the contract and looked for a utility and hand wash solution to suit the newly renovated market stall space. Franke assisted HE Barnes, from a site survey and conception of the design, through to manufacture and delivery. Each of the 12 market stalls has been fitted with a single stainless steel wash unit which included a double bowl, a hand washbasin and 2 monobloc mixer taps. Stainless steel is the perfect material for this application as they are robust, hygienic and easy to clean. This ensures that products will last for years to come as well as keeping service and maintenance costs to a minimum.
Stephen James, Project Manager at HE Barnes commented “Franke was really supportive in helping design a solution for the project. We initially put forward standard catering sinks and separate washbasins, but this took up far too much space and wasn’t a practical solution. Franke then helped design a full bespoke unit with two sinks and a separate bowl all in one unit which was an excellent space saving solution and was just what we required.”
