Apollo Healthcare Medical Centre
Burroughs acted as Civil and Structural Engineer for three new Medical Health Centres located at Clydach, Rhyl and SA1 Swansea, providing two storey, three storey and four storey facilities, respectively.
The Centres bring together numerous GP practices, pharmacies, dentists, local health board and University School of Medicine to provide all aspects of primary health care. The facilities are a striking example of what can be achieved with excellent collaboration between the Design Team and stakeholders.
Burroughs were part of the Design Team that developed the scheme through successful planning, tender and construction.
All three sites involved interesting engineering solutions to overcome site issues, including ground gasses. A SuDS solution was also incorporated at Clydach, where rainwater harvesting was used together with permeable paving and attenuation to attain surface water discharge. An undercroft car park was integrated into the design at SA1, with RC frame over to maximise the site.
