Assura Group to hand over energy-efficient new development
The UK’s leading healthcare property developer and investor, Assura Group, has completed its latest development, a £2m surgery in Y Felinheli, North Wales.
The 8,395sq ft scheme, delivered in partnership with developer Amcen Cyfyngedig, provides state-of-the-art premises for Dr McCann & Partners, along with the Local Health Board, which is also taking space in the building.
The building is situated on a greenfield site overlooking the Menai Straits and has received a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating, the second highest energy efficiency standard attainable. The surgery has incorporated measures such as rainwater harvesting and ground source heating.
The scheme is the latest addition to Assura Group’s expanding Welsh portfolio, including developments in Harlech, Gelligaer and Milford Haven.
Amanda Roddy, development manager at Assura Group, said: “We’re very pleased to have completed yet another project in Wales and to have continued our work alongside Amcen Cyfyngedig. Operating from out-of-date stock is still an issue for many GP practices across the country, but the Y Felinheli Health Centre is a fantastic example of how premises can be both well designed, efficient and fit for purpose.”
Dr Peter Jones of Dr Jones & Partners added: “We’re delighted to see the completion of our new health centre. As we expand our practice within Y Felinheli the delivery of the highest-quality healthcare experience is essential, and the new building will help us to achieve that.”
The architect on the scheme was W M Design & Architecture with contractor Watkin Jones in charge of construction.
