The £750 million PFI scheme will see the Shanks Group operate a mechanical biological treatment (MBT) and anaerobic digestion (AD) plant at Bolton Road, Manvers, with the facility due to open by 2015. Wrightstyle will supply and install some 280 square metres of heavy-duty steel glazing systems, including curtain walling, doors, screens and windows, complete with high performance thermal glazing. 38 JAN 2014 The company was contracted by Border Steelwork Structures, which specializes in the design, fabrication and erection of steelframed buildings. The contract covers several buildings on the site, including operational and workshop facilities and a visitors’ centre – underlining the role that steel glazing systems can play in the design and build of environmentallysensitive projects. Barnsley, Doncaster and Rotherham have almost 350,000 households which last year between them produced around 340,000 tonnes of waste – almost one tonne per household, with a key priority being to divert as much waste as possible from landfill. Also this year Wrightstyle significantly extended its system range by becoming a network partner for global building envelope giant Schueco. To read more, visit
