Powering up Africa from new Cambridge HQ
The headquarters of a unique solar power firm are being moved to Winship House, Milton, to occupy just over 4,000 sq ft of offices, marketed by Robinson Layer.
Azuri Technologies is a leading provider of home solar power systems to off-grid households in rural Africa.
Access to reliable energy is a huge challenge for countries in sub-Saharan Africa, and as the business grows to meet customer demand it was decided to relocate its headquarters from north Cambridge to Milton. Currently with a team of 30, Azuri say that these larger premises will allow them to plan for their future needs.
Mark Robinson of the agents said: “Azuri Technologies have signed up to half of the ground floor, being a fully refurbished suite of 4,100 sq ft. They have just finished fitting it out and are moving in at the moment.
“The balance of the ground floor is firmly under offer to an accountancy practice, which is taking about 4,500 sq ft in the New Year.
“These lettings are an important milestone in our marketing of the 18,000 sq ft Winship House, which was previously wholly occupied by Cambridge Newspapers before it became part of Local World, now owned by the Trinity Mirror Group.
“The first floor of about 8,935 sq ft will become vacant shortly when Local World departs and that space will be stripped out to be wholly refurbished for occupation in the Spring.
“Winship House occupies a strategic location, just across the A14 from Cambridge Science Park, Cambridge Business Park and the north Cambridge rail station development, and offers Grade A fully air conditioned office space with bags of parking, at rents and business rates two thirds the cost of those nearby science and business parks.”
