BARNSLEY Pals Centenary Square has been shortlisted for an award.

The object of the Institution of Civil Engineers’ Centenary Awards is to give public recognition to outstanding examples of civil engineering.

Awards are made for civil engineering projects with a regional dimension in recognition of achievement, excellence or innovation in civil engineering.

It recognises the best project of excellence in concept, design and execution, constructed within the region.

Barnsley Pals Centenary Square is the official name of the the Town Hall square and gardens, home to the incredibly popular Experience Barnsley museum as well as the very popular fountains with their colourful light display.

"I’m pleased that the Barnsley Pals Centenary Square has shortlisted for this award," said cabinet spokesman Cllr Roy Miller.

"It certainly brings a lot of pleasure to the many people I see making use of it and enjoying the wonderful fountains, but the design and engineering behind it is certainly deserving of recognition as well."

Engineers from the council will meet with a panel of judges in December to take part in a presentation, explaining why Barnsley Pals Centenary Square is deserving of recognition.

The results will be announced in early 2014.
