Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Lancaster’s Central Market is the country’s oldest farmers’ market. A major structural challenge of the renovations included the addition of a 2,000-square-foot basement. WBCM completed an evaluation of the roof’s timber truss system for conformance with current building code requirements, in conjunction with restoration of the building’s slate roof. Additional consultation was provided to mechanical and electrical contractors for support and stabilization of a new pendant lighting system and suspended fire protection system. The market remained operational during the entire construction period.
