Ascona House, a brand-new head office for the Ascona Group, has been approved by the Pembrokeshire County Council's planning committee. The three-story building will provide office accommodation, meeting suites, and staff welfare facilities, including a private gym. The approval also includes a storage building and helipad, which will enhance the company's operational efficiency and help them meet the growing demand for their services.
The Ascona Group is a highly successful fuel retail and wholesale business that has outgrown its current units in the Bridge Innovation Centre in Pembroke Dock. Despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has continued to grow, expand its operations, and provide essential services to its customers. As a result, the Ascona Group has been ranked as Wales' fastest-growing company and included in The Sunday Times UK's 100 fastest-growing companies.
The new head office, Ascona House, was designed by C+A Design. The building's design and layout have been carefully planned to provide a comfortable and productive working environment for the company's staff and visitors. In addition, the private gym and other welfare facilities will help the company promote employee health and wellbeing, further enhancing its reputation as an employer of choice in the area.
The approval of the new head office has been welcomed by the local community and business leaders. Councillor Brian Hall, who moved the approval, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, "This is a successful company that has outgrown the units they've had in the BIC. I'm delighted to see this here; I move the recommendation with no hesitation at all."
With the approval granted, the construction of Ascona House is set to commence soon, providing a boost to the local economy and creating new job opportunities. The new head office will also allow the Ascona Group to continue its growth trajectory, expand its operations, and serve its customers better, cementing its position as a leading player in the fuel industry.
