In the heart of Llanelli, Southwest Wales, Bouygues UK is currently constructing Pentre Awel. The first development of its scope and size in Wales providing world-class medical research and health care delivery and supporting and encouraging people to lead active and healthy lives.
As well as improving health and wellbeing, the project will create almost 2,000 jobs and training/apprenticeship opportunities and is expected to boost the local economy by a £467million over the next 15 years.
Pentre Awel will provide a state-of-the-art new £27million leisure centre which will incorporate:
· Education, research and business development
The research and development will help to push the boundaries of understanding of what it means to live well. Pentre Awel will be home to big science and small start-ups, established businesses and new kids on the block. All working in partnership with universities and colleges and the health board to make life better.
A clinical delivery and research centre will enable Hywel Dda University Health Board to expand its research and medical engineering provision by focusing on community level clinical trials, linked to facilities on site; and provide multi-disciplinary care closer to home for a wide range of community-focused services.
An education and training centre will focus on health and care training, with courses ranging from entry level through to postgraduate, placing students in a clinical setting and focusing on areas where there is a skill shortage.
