These spaces provide the ideal space to support biotech and scientific research organisations whose needs are often overlooked in South Wales. By co-locating our lab, office, and conferencing space, we offer tenants something otherwise not catered for in South Wales and allows us to attract businesses with multiple requirements

The offices and labs are fully serviced – including cleaning, security, and reception services, along with 24/7 key card access. All will have access to a dedicated tea point kitchen area on each floor with complimentary tea and coffee as well as an onsite café from a local independent provider.
