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.
