Amlwch Primary Care, Anglesey
The Amlwch Primary Care is a new £2 milliom healthcare development located in the centre of Amlwch, Anglesey.
The healthcare facility building comprises a two storey steel frame, generally masonry clad structure, with upper plant deck. Upper floors are of precast concrete construction with roof construction comprising traditional slate and ‘green’ sedum areas.
Foundations consist of traditional pad and strip footings onto underlying coarse gravel shale material with a ground bearing ground floor slab. The works also included improvements to an adjacent council owned car park which drains into a highways culvert.
The site was not served by any adopted surface water drains and Highways would not allow an increase of flow into the local culvert.
We developed a unique SUDS solution to provide on-site attenuation to not only our site, but also to the existing council car park, such that the limiting flow off the site was less than the pre-development run-off, thus gaining approval from Welsh Water, the Planners, and local Highways.
