The project to build a new Primary Care Centre in Swansea for Healthcare Property Company Wales has commenced.
Designed to meet the changing demands and increasing number of patients in Swansea, the new healthcare centre will replace the existing Brynhyfryd Surgery and will accommodate both primary care and community services to achieve better health outcomes and improved access to services from within the heart of the community.
WRW have been appointed as main contractor for the design and construction of the two-storey health centre and integral pharmacy unit with Richard Boothroyd & Associates acting on behalf of the client as Project Manager. In collaboration with design team members; Austin Smith Lord, Roger Casey Associates and TMS Design Consultants the project will be delivered to BREEAM 'Very Good' rating and will include various sustainability features.
Robert Williams, Managing Director said: "We are delighted to be working with Healthcare Property Company Wales, Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board and the design team in delivering this high profile scheme for the community of Brynyfryd. The new Primary Care Centre is an exciting project for WRW and will develop our experience and knowledge in this sector. We look forward to continuing our longstanding working relationship with Austin Smith Lord on this high quality scheme."
The new building will include Brynhyfryd Surgery, a treatment room and support spaces for Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, training space for future GPs, shared waiting space and Lewis Pharmacy. The new facility will also include purpose-built accommodation for community nursing teams and health board-led community services as well as improved car parking and disabled parking facilities.
Located on Llangyfelach Road in Swansea the new Primary Care Centre is scheduled to open next year.
