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.”

Cardiff Waterside is a significant property holding for Aviva Investors at almost 500,000 sq ft. Our experiences show the benefit of working with a regional specialist where occupational markets can be unlocked with a good team with excellent local contacts. Ben Bolton and his team have done this for us for many years and been fundamental to our success and a very low void rate in Cardiff.
