Gwynedd’s £2m surgery on site

Healthcare developer Assura Group has started construction of a new practice in the village of Y Felinheli next to the Menai Strait, in partnership with developer Amcen Cyfyngedig.

The architect on the scheme is WM Design & Architecture, with the main contractor Watkin Jones.

The 8,395 sq ft development will relocate Dr Jones & Partners from its current Menai Bridge Surgery, with the Local Health Board also taking space in the building. The scheme is due to complete in spring 2013.

The building will be situated on a greenfield site overlooking the Menai Strait and is expected to achieve a BREEAM 'excellent' rating.

Amanda Roddy, development manager of Assura Group, said: "This is essential in a location of natural beauty such as the Menai Straits. The new surgery will improve the facilities that the local GPs are currently working in and most importantly, boost the offering to the local patients."

Dr Peter Jones said: "We are delighted that the development has started on site. The new surgery will be an asset to the local community and will enable us to provide a higher quality of service for patients in the area."

Mark Roberts of Amcen Cyfyngedig said: "We're looking forward to working in partnership with Assura Group to produce a cutting-edge healthcare facility for the people of Y Felinheli.

"The GPs at the surgery have been working towards this for some time, so its great to finally start on site with the project."
