Worksop Galvanizing has partnered with long-standing client, Caunton Engineering, to galvanize over 750 tonnes of steel for the redevelopment of Neath Town Centre.
The project, which is being overseen by main contractor, Kier Construction, saw the plant process structural steel including beams and framework to construct a new 600 space multi-storey carpark and a 24,000 sq.ft retail unit, as part of the first phase of redevelopment of the shopping district.
Funded by the Regeneration Investment Fund for Wales (RIFW), the project is central to attracting more people to the town, and create a vibrant place to live, work, and socialise.
Steven Waterhouse, Divisional Director at Caunton Engineering, said: “We have worked with Worksop Galvanizing on previous projects, and knew the size of the galvanizing bath at the facility would easily accommodate the 16 metre long span beams which formed the main structure of the carpark. Galvanizing the steel was a specific request of the contractor, and will ensure the framework and beams are protected against rust and corrosion for years to come.”
Paul Robinson, Commercial Manager at Worksop Galvanizing, explained: “This project was a fantastic one to work on, especially as it will create so many new retail and job opportunities in Neath, which will no doubt strengthen the economy of the town.”
