The Challenge

The Glass Works is the future vision for Barnsley’s Town Center, offering exciting ways for the community to connect, shop and discover new leisure activities and business opportunities. The project consists of various phases such as the historic Barnsley Market, a new state of the art library and the Market Kitchen, an independent food court.
The Glass Works also comprises of 25 shops, 7 restaurants, a 13--screen Cineworld Cinema and Superbowl UK, plus parking spaces.
The challenge was to find a soffit liner that could achieve the required thermal performance whilst not impacting on the available height in the parking area.

The Solution

Heraklith® was able to deliver exactly that: a fit for purpose soffit liner achieving the required thermal performance. Based on Psi consultancy, U value calculations and other experts involved in this project the contractor was able to choose Heraklith® solutions. Our wood wool boards offered the perfect synergy of a light weight aesthetic finishing whilst delivering the required thermal performance at the same time.
Heraklith® was able to guarantee fast installation. Not only because of the incredible fast delivery times, but also because of the ease of installation. As the panels have a tongue and groove they can be mounted with fewer screws per panel and thus save the construction team hours of installation time.
