HEALTHCARE SPECIALISTS AIM FOR GROWTH AT COED DARCY

South Wales occupational healthcare specialists, Insight Health Screening, has expanded its operations by moving to a larger headquarter office at Llan Coed House in Neath, an estate owned by Coed Darcy Limited. 

The company has relocated from Sandfields Business Centre in Baglan to larger, high quality office unit at the 15,000 sq ft Llan Coed House building in Coed Darcy, part of the £1.2bn sustainable community being developed by landowner and regeneration specialist, St. Modwen. 

The letting to Insight Health Screening brings Llan Coed House close to full occupation. More than 8,000 sq ft of employment space remains across the wider business estate for small to medium size businesses on a rental basis. Proposals are also in place for the future development of 450,000 sq ft of new employment space.  

Coed Darcy Limited, a company jointly owned by St. Modwen, Neath Port Talbot County Borough Council and the Prince’s Trust Foundation for the Built Environment owns the estate comprising of circa 100 private and public sector organisations, which together employ more than 1,500 people. 

Kevin Mills, Property Manager for Coed Darcy Limited and St. Modwen commented: “Coed Darcy is already proving to be an attractive development for our tenants who benefit from  modern office space in a managed estate set within close proximity to the M4. 

“With capacity still available for future employment space across the estate, comprising of Llan Coed House, Britannic House, William Knox House and industrial units located in the Courtyard, we’re commited to developing a high quality business environment at this landmark scheme in South Wales for years to come.”

Liz Terry, Managing Director of Insight Health Screening, commented: “The company continues to expand its essential health services for public and private sector businesses across South Wales and is ambitious for further growth.  Moving to our new headquarters at Coed Darcy is an important and exciting step in meeting the future needs of the business within this top-quality development. 

“Not only are we in a prime location to deliver our key services, with links to Swansea, Neath, Port Talbot and rest of South Wales right on our doorstep but our training arm of the business has been given a massive boost thanks to the first-class conference facilities we now have at our disposal.”

Tom Rees, Surveyor at Lambert Smith Hampton Swansea office and agents for Coed Darcy Limited, commented: “This last transaction takes Llan Coed House up to 95 per cent occupancy reflecting the confidence in Coed Darcy as a prime business location which offers high quality accommodation and excellent transportation links.”

Over the next 20 years, St. Modwen plans to deliver circa 4,000 homes, four schools and a mixture of employment and community development at Coed Darcy bringing in excess of £1 billion of economic benefit to the area through this major regeneration.
