Local Newport business, Contemporary Garden Rooms, is expanding after winning a number of new projects, including a contract to deliver a new school classroom and a number of holiday annexes.

To meet customer needs and enable the business to grow, the company has now expanded its presence at St. Modwen’s Audley Avenue Enterprise Park by letting a 3,335 sq ft unit – in addition to its existing 5,223 sq ft workshop at the site.

Paul Jones, founder and managing director of Contemporary Garden Rooms, said: “Our decision to let unit 10B represents a really exciting time for the business, as we look to increase our offering and the size of projects that we take on and move the family business forward.

“The location of Audley Avenue Enterprise Park is perfect for our business, as it’s close to the centre of Newport, whilst being close to our family home and a skilled local employment pool, who all live within a 10 minute drive.”

The units at Audley Avenue Enterprise Park currently support 124 local jobs, and offers almost 137,000 sq ft of employment space across a 9.6 acre site.

Julie Rossiter, Senior Asset Manager at St. Modwen, said: “Contemporary Garden Rooms is a real success story at Audley Avenue, having started out in one of the smaller units five years ago, before expanding into unit 17.

“With new projects in the pipeline, this additional unit provides flexible space to enable the business to better serve its clients and continue to grow the business in the lucrative and growing area of premium garden buildings.”

Audley Avenue Enterprise Park is now over 95% per cent let, with just unit 10A now available to let, offering 3,506 sq ft of flexible space.

Audley Avenue Enterprise Park is situated to the south east of Newport, with convenient access to Telford and Stafford via the A518 and Wolverhampton via the A41. Junction 3 of the M54 motorway is approximately eight miles to the south, providing convenient access to the national motorway network.
