Apollo are delighted to report the legal close of their Cloughmore scheme in Cardiff. This 1,100sqm scheme will accommodate Dr Foy & Partners and a pharmacy and is going to be located on the Splott Clinic site. Welsh Government approval was granted in June 2011 and planning in October 2011. Work is due to commence in July 2012 and be complete by May 2013.
The site was bought from Cardiff University Health Board with the intention of demolishing the existing structure to make way for this state of the art primary care centre. The scheme has been designed to take up to 8,000 patients in the Splott and Tremorfa areas of Cardiff, however, specialist services will also reach out to patients registered with other practices.
The design by Boyes Rees Architects of Cardiff takes influences from the industrial past of the region and includes an intelligent natural stack ventilation system to enhance the internal environment for staff and patients.
Rob James, Apollo’s Operations Director said “this is the culmination of 4 years” work by the project team and we are really looking forward to delivering a new facility for the GPs, staff and patients in the region”.
