New images released as construction contract awarded for Rhyl Queen’s Buildings project

North Wales news and information

A construction contract has been awarded for phase one of the Queen’s buildings project in Rhyl.

Two new CGI images have also been released showing the latest plans for the scheme which form part of Denbighshire Council’s Rhyl regeneration programme.

The first phase will see the construction of a new indoor market hall, event space and external landscaped area, along with the refurbishment of the Queens Chambers – the red brick building on Sussex Street.

Although phase one was already due to have begun, due to birds nesting on the site this will now begin in the summer.

Professional teams are closely monitoring the site to discourage further nesting and to ensure that birds already nesting are protected.

The funding for the development has been provided by the council, the Welsh Government Transforming Towns programme and the European Regional Development Fund.

Wynne Construction has been appointed through the North Wales Construction Partnership (NWCP) framework to construct the building.

Cllr Jason McLellan, council leader and lead member for economic growth and tackling deprivation said: “I am very much looking forward to watching this key development progress.

“The Queen’s Buildings will bring multiple jobs, and a unique retail offering for Denbighshire residents and visitors from further away.

“People now use their town centres differently. This project will keep us modern and be a real asset to not just Rhyl but the whole of the county and its local economy.”

Signs have recently been installed around the building to showcase other projects associated with the wider Rhyl regeneration project.

They include developments at Rhyl High School, Christ the Word, the Rhyl coastal defences, SC2, 1891, Greening Rhyl, Rhyl harbour, Costigans co-working space and Edward Henry Street.
