*Regus is one of the first organisations to sign up for the £60million groundbreaking environmentally sustainable Wales 1 Business Park near Newport, gateway to South Wales*
LONDON, 03 JULY 2008: Regus, the leading global provider of flexible workplace solutions, has signed up to open a new, prestigious business centre at the groundbreaking £60million Wales 1 Business Park, near Newport in South Wales. The new 17 acre park – developed by The Charnwood Group – will be the first in the South Wales area to provide clients with the highest quality sustainable offices and lower carbon footprints. The new centre, Regus Severn Bridge, is scheduled to open early in 2009.
Key features of the new sustainable Regus Severn Bridge centre will include sustainable and energy saving design, rainwater harvesting, passive air handling systems and re-cycling of used or ‘grey’ water. Developers are also looking at potential geothermal heating and wind energy generation for the building. The Wales 1 Business Park has been designed using materials which complement the natural landscape whilst providing the highest quality modern office premises.
The new Regus centre will boast the highest quality facilities for over 200 clients, including fully equipped serviced offices, professional meeting rooms, a business lounge and videoconferencing facilities.
Commenting on Regus Severn Bridge, Phil Lloyd, Regus Area Director, says: “We’re committed to investing in South Wales and we’re very pleased to be able to take space in this new development. Our clients are increasingly concerned about their environmental impact and looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprints. New business centres like Regus Severn Bridge give us the opportunity to address these concerns through sustainable building whilst providing the very highest quality business services. We look forward to seeing the new centre open for business early next year.”
Regus is ideally placed to help companies and business professionals reduce their environmental footprint, by enabling its clients to cut their commuting emissions and costs by working locally and flexibly from one of Regus’ 950 plus business centres. Regus clients can also cut back on business trips by conducting meetings using one of Regus’ state-of-the-art videoconferencing suites – a highly cost-effective alternative to increasingly expensive travel.
The new Regus Severn Bridge centre in the Wales 1 business park will be located near Newport, and just off junction 23a of the M4, midway between Cardiff and Bristol. Located at the first junction in Wales after the River Severn crossing, Regus Severn Bridge will provide fast access to work for business professionals travelling from England or Wales. Excellent train services will link the centre to Newport, Bristol and London Paddington.
Planning is also underway for a 4 star luxury hotel and 100 place private children’s day nursery on the park. Leisure facilities nearby include the 5 star Celtic Manor Resort and Spa, home to the 2010 Ryder Cup golf course as well as Chepstow racecourse.
Regus Severn Bridge will be located at Building 104, Wales 1 Business Park, Magor, Monmouthshire, South Wales. For more information about the new Regus centre, visit http://www.regus.co.uk/locations/GB/Magor
