Blackburn Meadows is a biomass power station converting wood waste to energy. Replacing Sheffield’s cooling towers, it acts as a landmark to the city reflecting the iconic nature of the Tinsley Towers that stood on the site for 70 years. It became operational in 2014 and was awarded the Best Building Award at the Sheffield Design Awards in 2016. A range of materials enclose the compact plant, with black profiled steel and brick reflecting Sheffield’s heritage.

The session will be recorded and made available on our website free of charge after the event.
We hope this method of visiting local architecture will be more accessible to more people.
