Capgemini has acquired almost 10,000 sq ft of new offices on the ground and first floors at 3 Fairway Court in Treforest as part of a £17m investment in expansion in Wales supported by the Welsh Government. The global consulting, technology and outsourcing services firm, which has had a presence in Wales since 1998, will create 100 new skilled jobs over the next three years. The Treforest site will be its UK centre to deliver security sensitive projects for both public and private sector contracts. Cooke & Arkwright acted for the landlord L&N Property in the deal.

Mark Siddons, Surveyor with Cooke & Arkwright’s Business Space team said, “Fairway Court provides generous on-site parking with quality accommodation in an attractive setting. Its proximity via the A470 to Cardiff, Pontypridd, Merthyr Tydfil and the M4, providing an ideal location outside of Cardiff. The letting to Capgemini brings the office accommodation of around 30,000 sq ft at Fairway Court to full occupation.”

Cooke & Arkwright have been providing Newport City Council with rating advice for over 20 years. Andrew, Jane and Huw provide a personal and professional service and have an excellent knowledge of the Council’s assets which has enabled the Council to achieve substantial rate savings. A useful service offered is the status report which provides us with a snapshot of what appeals have been made and appeals outstanding throughout the life of the List. I would recommend Cooke & Arkwright Rating Services to any company wishing to procure up-to-date and professional rating advice.
