Upgrade for Welsh town centre relies on steel
More than 750t of structural steelwork has been galvanized for the construction of a 600-space multi-storey car park and a 2,200m² retail unit, as part of the redevelopment of Neath’s shopping district.
Worksop Galvanizing partnered its long-standing client and project steelwork contractor Caunton Engineering to galvanize the steel.
The project, which is being overseen by main contractor Kier Construction, saw Worksop Galvanizing process structural steel including beams and columns to construct the new structures.
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.
The use of galvanized steel was a specific request of the contractor as it will ensure the framework and beams are protected against rust and corrosion for years to come.”
