Market Hall, Plymouth

Project: Market Hall, Plymouth

Material: Single Ply

Project brief

Once a thriving 19th Century market hall in the heart of the city, Grade II listed building, Market Hall, was part of a major £7million refurbishment to transform the forgotten structure into a digital hub for research, entertainment and learning. 

Set to become home to Europe’s first immersive cinema, the building’s existing roof was in a very poor condition after being left to decay for a number of years. To protect future visitors, as well as to enhance and integrate with the iconic architecture of the historic structure, the building required a complete roofing refurbishment as well as new roofs on various structural extensions. 


Working alongside lead contractor, Classic Builders, DFR Roofing weatherproofed the structure, creating a warm roof with the installation of Bauder’s Total Roof System, with its durability and performance making it one of the toughest roofing solutions available. Single Ply was also installed extensively across the main roofing area, with its smooth, seamless surface complimenting the architectural style of the existing build, while also making a design statement in its own right.  

With the new cinema featuring a 15 metre, 360-degree dome, acoustics were also a key consideration. Providing superior acoustic and thermal performance and noise reduction qualities, BauderROCK insulation was installed across the domed surface, ensuring future cinema-goers can become completely immersed in the virtual world.
