Mapletree signs Wood plc at Reading’s Green Park
Mapletree has secured global consulting and engineering company, Wood, as a new occupier to Green Park, the Thames Valley’s leading business park. Headquartered in Aberdeen, with 36,000 professionals across 60 countries, Wood is set to relocate its Reading workforce from its current Shinfield Park site to 400 Longwater Avenue in August 2024.
As one of Green Park’s first buildings to be awarded platinum WELL certification from the International Well Building Institute™, 400 Longwater Avenue offers a market-leading employee experience through advanced health and wellbeing focused building design. This move will see Wood provide a best-in-class workspace that will encourage positive employee physical and mental health, attract new talent and bolster project delivery.
The deals at 400 Longwater Avenue and its sister building, 450 Longwater Avenue, to Three Mobile represent two of the largest deals in the region in the last 5 years. This announcement comes as a series of more occupiers are set to arrive in early 2024.
Rory Carson, Mapletree’s Vice President of Asset Management in the UK, adds, “Wood joins the Green Park community at an exciting time. We’ve already seen the impact that Green Park Station has had on the park’s connectivity. Alongside this, Mapletree is kickstarting its £7.9m investment programme to introduce a range of new amenities to further enhance our residents’ work lives and wellbeing. We’re thrilled to welcome Wood to Green Park.
