Serviced office group Rombourne today opened a base in Swindon, offering firms what it calls a prestigious five-star business centre.
The centre is the Cardiff-headquartered group’s ninth and its first away from its heartland of South East Wales and Bristol.
Rombourne said it had been looking to expand into Swindon for a some time. It acquired Kingston House on the Lydiard Fields business park close to the M4 at the end of last year.
It has since renovated the 17,000 sq ft building to offer up to 190 workstations in a range of three to 25-person offices.
Rombourne chairman Denis Donovan said: “We’ve redeveloped it so that it’s now a prestigious, five-star business centre.”
The building is rated as 'very good' under the BREEAM system, and fully air-conditioned. It also has high-speed broadband access.
Sales director Matt Read said the centre is already receiving inquiries.
“The fact that it has such excellent M4 access makes it very popular,” he said.
“Plus the ability to move in, plug in and simply get on with your business straight away is very appealing – as is the knowledge that office space can be quickly expanded or decreased, with virtually no hassle.
“The cost of serviced offices is not as high as people might expect, and the fact that so many businesses are opting for it shows how on balance, it’s a very attractive option.”
The centre will be officially opened by the Lord-Lieutenant of Wiltshire Sarah Rose Troughton on May 16.
