Protectahome technicians have today begun the latest phase of structural repairs at Trinity Chapel in Abertillery Town Centre. The work is a key aspect in the restoration of the chapel as part of a larger £13m redevelopment of the Town Centre.
The latest phase of structural work will involve installing a temporary beam to support the front wall whilst a new internal steel frame is installed within the building for future building works. While the internal framework is being completely replaced, the existing shell of the building will be maintained and Cintec anchors will also be installed by Protectahome to stabilise sections of the corners of the front elevation.
The latest phase follows previous structural repair work that Protectahome have undertaken on the exterior of the building.
Blaenau Gwent Council is redeveloping Trinity Chapel as part of a wider regeneration of Abertillery Town Centre which includes development work on key town centre locations such as: Church Street, High Street and Somerset Street as well as the building of a new gateway feature on Foundry Square.
The redevelopment is a 5 year project after funding was obtained from the Welsh Government with the support of the European Development Fund.
