Stratford-on-Avon MP John Maples opens prestigious new offices in Sambourne, Worcestershire

The Conservative Party Deputy Chairman witnessed just why Chestnut Court is being billed as the most technically-advanced and economically-friendly new office scheme in the Midlands. From the computer-controlled heating, lighting, windows and even sun-blinds to state-of-the-art video conferencing and security – all wrapped up in the most modern of buildings constructed sympathetically in-keeping with its leafy surroundings – he hailed the Jill Lane development as the perfect solution for companies opting out of the bigger cities and into idyllic rural locations.

Mr Maples, the guest of honour of developer Coltham Developments and marketing agents KWB, Birmingham’s leading office specialists, said: “This truly is a remarkable development.

“The entire scheme complements the truly rural surroundings and yet, the technology installed is simply mind-blowing and wouldn’t be out of place in a James Bond movie. Incredibly, it all appears to be beneficial to ensure the smooth and cost-effective running of a business too.” He added: “The economics of being able to have total control of your office, whether you’re on site or not, speak for themselves.”

Malcolm Jones, of KWB, said: “Chestnut Court is, in our opinion, one of the most advanced technically, here in the Midlands. Indeed, there are quarters where it is being touted as possibly one of the most prestigious in the country. “Suffice to say, we have received a lot of interest with 40 per cent of the completed phase one already either sold or under offer. The second phase is little more than a month from being completed.”
