The 54,000 sq ft flagship office building at Celtic Springs Business Park, Newport has been fully let to the Prison Service that will be locating its new Shared Service Centre for human resources and finance at the park, bringing more than 500 new jobs to South Wales.

The Prison Service will take the whole of CS1000, which is situated at the entrance to the park, overlooking the feature lake and provides an impressive introduction to Celtic Springs. Built on three floors, it has been arranged as two wings either side of a dramatic central atrium foyer, which is contained within a glazed rotunda. The top of the building has been completed with a circular suite with panoramic views of Newport. Iain Logue,Operations Director, AWG Property Ltd said: ÒWe are delighted to welcome the Prison Service to the park and the jobs that the letting will bring to South Wales. CS1000 has been designed to the very highest specifications and promises to provide a first class working environment. ÒThe deal is reflective of the high level of interest we are currently receiving for Celtic Springs, proving there is a strong demand for high quality A grade office accommodation in South Wales. ÒInterest has been such that CS5000, our office village on the park is now 50% let and plans are well underway for further speculative developments to capture the current high demand for superior office accommodation.
