Cooke & Arkwright and Savills, on behalf of Kames Capital, have leased the third floor at 11 Womanby Street in Cardiff to Sero, a zero-carbon homebuilder and sustainable energy service provider.

The 2,850 sq ft suite at 11 Womanby Street, formerly known as Westgate House, has been leased on a five-year deal after being refurbished. The reception area and common parts have been re-modelled to incorporate upgraded WCs, new showers and changing facilities, as well as extensive cycle parking.

The office building is located in a prominent position on Womanby Street, opposite the Millennium Stadium in central Cardiff.

Andy Sutton, co-founder of Sero, said: “Our business is growing fast as people are recognising the increasing importance of zero carbon housing and sustainable energy in our lives.

“11 Womanby is a great refurbished, recycled space that gives us room to develop and it reflects some of our own values. It has great transport links allowing for an active, low carbon route to work and it’s within easy reach of the park for our teams to get some well-earned headspace – or we can visit Tiny Rebel.”

Mark Siddons, of Cooke and Arkwright, said: “This letting represents a welcome show of confidence and a genuine lock down deal, rewarding the landlord’s commitment to invest in the refurbishment of the property.

Gary Carver, office agency director at Savills Cardiff, added: “We are still seeing  demand for good quality offices in Cardiff, particularly those which have been refurbished to a high standard with exposed services and offering excellent amenities such as showers and cycle parking.”

Cooke & Arkwright advised ABP over the life cycle of its major waterfront mixed use development schemes in Cardiff and Barry. The quality and commitment of their people working alongside us were a key factor in the successful delivery of those schemes.
