Cardiff-based housing developer and regeneration specialist Lovell is to relocate its South Wales and the South West regional office this month (March) to the prestigious Greenmeadow Springs business park on the outskirts of the city.
The move to high-specification modern office premises is the latest step in an exciting phase of expansion for the firm which is already working on some of the region’s most high-profile new-build and housing regeneration programmes.
From 14 March, the regional business will be located at 5 Cae Gwyrdd – less than a mile from its previous Gwaelod-y-Garth base – with a location next to Junction 32 of the M4 ensuring excellent access for the Lovell team, their clients and partners.
Lovell regional director Kate Rees says: “We’re very excited to be moving to our new office at Greenmeadow Springs. The move allows us to benefit from high-quality modern business accommodation with fantastic facilities in a brilliant location offering easy access to the motorway network.”
Rhys Williams of Emanuel Jones, agents for Greenmeadow Springs, says: “The move for Lovell is a great success as it will have minimal impact for staff while at the same time dramatically upgrading the specification of their office space. The deal clearly shows the attractiveness of Greenmeadow Springs Business Park thanks to the quality of office stock on offer and unrivalled access.”
Recent business successes for Lovell including the company’s appointment by the Tirion Group to create The Mill, a landmark development which will transform a former paper mill site in Cardiff with 800 brand-new homes, creating a £100 million new urban village. One of the largest city regeneration programmes in Wales, the development at the 53-acre former Arjo Wiggins Paper Mill site, in Canton, Cardiff, will deliver a brand-new sustainable community featuring houses and apartments in a riverside setting, as well as providing new business, commercial and recreational space. Work began in December 2015 on the creation of the infrastructure for the development with construction of the new homes set to start in Autumn 2016.
Lovell is also working on the second phase of the 250-home, £28 million Loftus Garden Village development in Newport, having in November 2015 handed over the first properties built through phase one of the scheme. In housing refurbishment, Lovell continues to work on a £10.5 million framework contract with Vale of Glamorgan Council for internal and external refurbishment of homes and a £38.9 million housing refurbishment contract carrying out work at 15,000 Bristol City Council homes.
