The Glass Works, Barnsley

A multi-award-winning scheme to build a better town centre is being achieved using structural sections supplied by British Steel.

The Glass Works is Barnsley Council’s £200 million game-changing project, which is transforming the heart of Barnsley town centre with new retail, leisure and public realm facilities.

A new chapter in Barnsley’s already famous history, The Glass Works project is being delivered over 2 phases, with the second now well underway and on track to be completed in 2021.

The project features many different steel-framed elements, including 25 shops, a 13-screen Cineworld with 4DX technology, Superbowl UK with bowling alley, laser quest and soft play, 7 family-friendly restaurants, public square, multi-storey car park and Market Gate Bridge. The completed first phase included the new Library @ the Lightbox, Barnsley Markets and Market Kitchen.

British Steel has manufactured and supplied 2,000 tonnes of universal beams and universal columns to steelwork contractor, Billington Structures, as part of the second and final phase of the scheme.
