Gearing up for another regeneration scheme

Model  Model

Work has started in earnest to regenerate these six, mixed-tenure apartment blocks in Cwmbran. Yesterday, I managed to dodge the rain to take some photographs of the buildings  – before they are transformed forever and we forget what they looked like originally…

Westdale are the main contractors, delivering a transformational package of works, including insulated roofing, double glazing and Eternal Wall Insulation, using sympathetically-applied artbrick render finishes.

Above are a couple of iterative design proposals. Below, scaffolding is being erected, and enabling works undertaken.

As you can see, these non-traditionally constructed homes are in desperate need of regeneration.

Watch this space for regular updates!
