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 have provided independent property consultancy services to the College for a number of years. This advice has included property valuations and negotiation around property acquisition and disposal, rent reviews and the preparation and negotiation of the College’s farm business tenancy agreement. The College has consistently received an excellent and professional service from Cooke & Arkwright and their valuable support to the College is recognised and appreciated.
