Shaun Prichard was the designer of the Beacon Centre Primary Care Facility in SA1 Swansea whilst working as an Architect at B3. The facility houses two general practice doctor’s surgeries, a private dentist and a pharmacy, together with Swansea University School of Medicine and elements of the Local Health Board.
