Pop Up Power Supplies

Glass act for Pop Up Power Supplies® in Barnsley’s new £200m development

  • 22 Mar 2021

Flip-lid, in-ground power units from Pop Up Power Supplies® will provide on-demand access to power throughout the modern landscaped multi-purpose outdoor spaces that are a key feature of Barnsley’s transformational new Glass Works development.

The £200m project by Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, in conjunction with Queensberry, is a major regeneration scheme in the heart of the South Yorkshire town.

This will create the go-to retail destination, filled with shops, restaurants and leisure activities.

This second phase builds on the success of phase one, which involved the redevelopment of the town’s long-established market and the Lightbox building, home to a new state-of-the-art library.

Developed with community spirit at its heart with a welcoming public realm, a key feature of the 500,000 square foot Glass Works development is its large outdoor spaces with safe pedestrianised zones.

This includes a new modern landscaped public square where routes into the town centre meet, which is large enough for market stalls and all kinds of public events to be hosted, such as live music and arts performances.

PUPS 02 4040

By integrating PUPS 02 4040 in-ground service units from Pop Up Power Supplies® at strategic locations within the paved areas, the architects IBI Group will ensure the public realm has great flexibility and purpose. 

These in-ground units are submerged with a depth of 450mm and feature a flip-lid for access to power sockets. This lid can only be opened with key access and once the power cables are connected during the set-up of an event; the lid can then be closed and locked to allow continuous unattended use for the duration.

Ideal for all kinds of town centre redevelopment projects, as well as industrial, educational and commercial applications, PUPS 02 4040 in-ground service units can provide total power of 32 Amps in a single supply.

They can also be specified to supply water and data points to public places, and are guaranteed to offer long term durability thanks to a robust construction which includes a stainless steel cover and lever lock.

Aesthetic goals are also easy to meet by choosing in-ground power units from Pop Up Power Supplies®. Being submerged, they are permanently out of sight so have no visual impact – nor do they present obstructions to the public – and their recessed lids allow for paving to match surrounding surfaces.
