Carbon zero for Swansea

Bouygues UK has signed a contract with Swansea Council to build the city centre’s new high-tech, carbon zero office development that will provide space for 600 jobs


Set for completion in the summer of 2023, the five-storey development at 71/72 The Kingsway will include 114,000 square feet of commercial floorspace, providing flexible co-working and office opportunities for innovative tech, digital and creative businesses.

The development – led by Swansea council – will be worth £32.6 million a year to Swansea’s economy and will also feature state-of-the-art digital connectivity, a roof terrace, greenery and balconies overlooking the city centre and Swansea Bay. The developments will include two underground levels with new links between The Kingsway and Oxford Street.

As part of its work on the build, Bouygues UK will be working with and supporting local voluntary organisations, providing training, work placements and opportunities for local people, in addition to significant supply chain opportunities for local businesses.
