Construction Enquirer News Sewer diversion works to pave way for next phase of The Glass Works
Yorkshire Water has appointed Barhale to conduct enabling works on Barnsley town centre’s £200m regeneration development, The Glass Works.
Barhale will carry out a critical sewer diversion for development manager Queensberry and main contractor Henry Boot Construction.
The £2m sewer diversion programme will pave the way for the retail and leisure phase of The Glass Works , which includes 25 shops, a 13-screen Cineworld, Superbowl UK, seven restaurants and cafes, a landmark public square and a 500 plus-space car park.
The previous phase of the project included the new Library @ the Lightbox, Market Kitchen and the major refurbishment of historic Barnsley Markets.
Barhale Project Manager, Nick Smith said the team will bring in a tunnel boring machine to install 60m of 1200mm diameter new concrete sewer .
He said: “The location is quite severely constraine, effectively it’s hemmed in by the development and a railway line to the East at Kendray Street.
“Our approach enables the development construction to continue at the same time reducing some of the logistic challenges and means we can keep costs down and complete more quickly.
“The Glass Works is a hugely important scheme to regenerate an historic part of Barnsley town centre and we look forward to playing our part.”
