As work progresses on the new Primary and Community Care Centre in Mountain Ash, the building has been given its new identity, with a little help from the local community.
Now named Tŷ Calon Lân, which translates to House of Pure Heart, developers have chosen a logo to sit alongside the new name, after running a competition locally.
Rob James, Managing Director at Apollo Capital Projects, the developers of the new Primary Care Centre said: “With Tŷ Calon Lân well on track to be completed early next year, it was time to start personalising the building with some custom branding. We encouraged the surrounding communities to get involved by entering a competition to create a logo.”
After receiving entries from a range of ages, a panel of representatives from Apollo, the Practice GPs and staff, the winner was announced as Tamzin Cross from Mountain Ash.
Rob added: “Tamzin presented fantastic professionalism and designed a clean, adaptable logo which is easy to read and apply to all the branding needed for the building.”
The logo will now be featured on internal signage, websites and letterheads as well as seen on the building itself.
The competition also included the four runners up;
Tŷ Calon Lân is due to be completed in early 2021 and will become home to Cynon Vale Medical Centre and Rhos House Surgery, delivering GP services to over 11,000 patients in the area.
Sara Bradley, Head of Primary Care at Cwm Taf Morgannwg Health Board said: “The new Primary Care Centre will be at the heart of the community in Mountain Ash, so we’re delighted that local residents are already becoming involved with the development of the site. The logo created by Tazmin starts to bring to life the facility which will bring together primary care services, community health services, patients and the local community. Thanks to Apollo for running this competition.”
