Barnsley Library

CDD Ltd were appointed to undertake the RC Detailing for the exposed concrete frame on the library which included foundations, columns, cores and slabs.

Barnsley town centre was undergoing a huge development including the opening of this brand new central library in 2017.

The futuristic, £4 million, purpose built library which was local to our head office was part of a £50 million town centre redevelopment programme to attract visitors into the area and encourage investment in the borough. The library was to have a transparent glazed skin which emitted light to illuminate the new public town square.

Being so local to our office meant this project was particularly close to our hearts so we’re always happy to be part of our local community plans.
