Working with the Guildhall team and architect, BDP, ISG delivered a reconfiguration and partial refurbishment of the shopping centre. The team created a unique dining destination in the heart of Exeter, which is helping to boost the city’s night-time economy.

The transformation encompassed the sensitive restoration and incorporation of historic elements, and Queen Street Dining is now a ‘food’ destination, boasting eight new bars, cafes and restaurants. Recognising retail property and placemaking, the project was awarded a Revo Gold Award in December 2016.
