Rob James, Apollo’s Operations Director, enlisted the help of his youngest daughters Lucy and Nell to check out the work on the Beacon Centre for Health development on SA1 in Swansea. Lucy 12, and Nell 5, learnt many things including how buildings remain standing and what’s inside a lift shaft! They particularly enjoyed the large four storey atrium space which will house a living fig tree when complete. They now want to visit at different stages of the work to keep track on progress.
Rob James said: “It was great to show my children around and to give them a better understanding of buildings and what I do on a day to day basis. It is very useful to get a fresh unadulterated view of schemes to provide a reality check especially when you have worked in the detail for so long”.
The building is due to be completed in early 2013 and will accommodate the new Harbourside Health Centre, SA1 Medical Centre, Eastside Dental, ABM University Health Board and Swansea University College of Medicine along with the Coop Pharmacy.
