Bouygues has been chosen to construct a high-tech office development in Swansea city centre, the UK.

Construction work of the £30m office scheme, located at 71/72 The Kingsway, will begin this summer.

The five-storey scheme is located on the site where the former Oceana nightclub once stood.

Expected to complete in early 2023, the scheme will feature 114,000ft2 of space for tech, digital and creative businesses.

Following completion, the office development will be carbon zero and is expected to be worth £33m a year to the local economy.

The development will feature two underground levels. Furthermore, public access is being planned besides a new link between The Kingsway and Oxford Street.

Bouygues UK operations director for Wales Mike Baynham said: “The Kingsway has already seen a huge amount of improvements in recent years and this contemporary, flexible office development with opportunities for retail and leisure will further add to the regeneration of Swansea and the Swansea Bay City Region as a whole.”

Swansea Council leader Rob Stewart said: “We’re delighted to appoint Bouygues UK as our main contractor for this key development, which forms part of an on-going £1bn transformation of Swansea into the one of the UK’s best cities to live, work, study and visit.”

The development at 71/72 Kingsway is being funded by Swansea Council and the Swansea Bay City Deal.
