Local firms working together on Barnsley’s ‘The Glass Works’

Over the past 25 years we have worked hard to spread our wings across the UK ‘championing quality in construction’, and what better town redevelopment scheme for us to be involved in than the one in which our company’s Head Office resides in!

The Glass Works is a £120m town centre redevelopment project that will transform the lives of Barnsley residents providing them with a new town square, a revamped metropolitan centre and market, a new shopping boulevard — The Glasshouse, a new community central library — Library @ the Lightbox and new car parking to accommodate the influx of people looking to discover these new areas.

Appointed earlier this year by Henry Boot Construction—based in South Yorkshire and first established in 1886 as Henry Boot PLC—to work on the Glass Works Phase 1 library project. Our Building Clerk of Works—also locally based—has started working with the Henry Boot team on the new library and Metropolitan Centre. Work will also include further retail and leisure areas as well as the market square and will span the next couple of years.

This is our second appointment by Henry Boot Construction and will include M&E Clerk of Works services.

‘We are thrilled to be working on a local project with local teams and one which will have such a positive impact for Barnsley residents. It goes to show what South Yorkshire can do when it works together using its own resources. I’m looking forward to sharing updates and images on the progress of the development.’

—Marketing & Business Development Manager Kathy Clarke
