TRAGSA makes use of a unique technology in the world for restoring the church of Santiago in Jerez (Cadiz)
Thanks to the use of a pioneering restoration technique, the Church of Santiago el Real y de Refugio in Jerez de la Frontera (Cadiz) will resume its functions starting next month.
Grupo TRAGSA has been in charge of the restoration works carried out in the church, which have made possible to guarantee and consolidate its structure through the injection of mixtures of different stabilizing compounds, and of restoring the rest of the building, with the highest respect of the original construction.
The Church of Santiago, which presents a special value and which has been declared as an Andalusian Cultural Heritage Site, has thus become the first to be consolidated from the pinnacles to the floor, going through the whole structure. This constitutes a landmark which has been acknowledged by the international scientific community.
Mr. Emilio Yanes, the architect in charge of the project, has guaranteed that this work has been carried out taking into account very demanding safety levels and comprehensive technical building norms.
At an event which took place at the Jerez Bishopric, the regional delegate of Grupo TRAGSA, Mr. Sebastián García, highlighted the 'extremely complex challenge” which they set for themselves two and a half years ago when they took over the works 'for preventing the collapse of the church because there was an imminent danger of its doing so'.
