Project Overview

Glan-Irfon-Builth-Wells-External-2A £4.6m extension and remodelling of the existing Brynhyfryd care home to form the new Glan Irfon Integrated Health & Social Care Facility in Builth Wells designed to bring co-located Local Authority and Local health board services closer to the community modernising the existing health and social care provision in the locality.

The new 1676m2 two storey extension incorporates 12 en-suite bedrooms, a publicly accessible dentist, consulting rooms, a new multi-use community space, and office accommodation and associated support facilities. The new collaborative service delivered from the building includes rehabilitation services, district nursing, and community support, out-reach consultant-led services, locally based care home beds and Voluntary Sector led services.

Generating best value through community, local supplier and stakeholder engagement was vital to the successful delivery of this project. Prior to contract commencement the contractor/design team engaged with Powys County Council (PCC) and Powys Local Teaching Health Board (PLTHB) to ensure that all expectations were understood. Best value was generated in the local economy through supply chain engagement and a bespoke community benefits and targeted recruitment and training programme.

Community and patient stakeholder group representatives were consulted throughout the design process – influencing the overall design of the facility.
