Ty Calon Lan Complete

As you will be able to see from the portfolio section of our website, we successfully won a competition to design a new primary care health centre in Mountain Ash a number of years ago. This has led to the day in late March 2021 where the building was successfully completed by Jehu Group. (Jehu Website).



The scheme underwent formal AEDET and public consultation before Jehu Group’s appointment. It gained favourable responses from both consultations, along with the head of planning at Rhonda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, who was keen for the addition of a contemporary health centre, to help revitalise the area in which the building sits.



Along with meeting the exacting standards of the AEDET and planning processes, the design also needed to meet a BREEAM Excellent rating to obtain Welsh Government funding. It has done so in many ways, most notably by being a fabric-first design, using timber-frame construction with minimal cold-bridging and excellent levels of insulation, minimising heat loss, especially to those facades oriented away from the sun. It also benefits from a photo-voltaic array on the flat roof, hidden away from view at road level. This will provide electricity to the surgery during daytime use.

Praise for Ty Calon Lan

After we visited the building to hand over the Health and Safety File to the practices (we also performed the function of Principal Designer on this scheme) we sat down with Helen Wainwright of Cwm Taf University Health Board, who told us that she thought it was the most successful scheme that had been completed by the developer and that it would greatly lift and provide an essential service to Mountain Ash.
