Trinity Market, Kingston upon Hull

In Kingston upon Hull, Hull Trinity Market and Hepsworth’s Arcade offer a host of activities for the community, from regular health pop-ups such as Smoke Free Hull to ‘talk tables’ that encourage people to talk to each other. The refurbishment of Trinity Market provided a great opportunity to reduce the Victorian building’s carbon footprint. It now has seasonally intelligent automatic doors and individual energy meters in market stalls, so traders can monitor their energy consumption levels, encouraging more efficient use of resources. The community of Kingston upon Hull has also embraced technology. By employing a marketing consultant, the town hopes to educate its traders in social media. Free wi-fi and electronic point of sale systems have already enabled the traders of Trinity Market to accept digital payments
