Wales’ best workplace?

Sitting in a deckchair on the balcony with your laptop and a superfast Wi-Fi connection, waiting for a burger fresh from the BBQ, with a helmet at your feet ready for the evening office chair race; the start of an American movie, or just another day at Menai Science Park? M-SParc thinks they may just have created the best workplace in the region!


The 29 businesses located at the new building are provided with everything a business needs to succeed, and more. They have Wi-Fi that reaches through the whole building including the courtyard and both balconies, decked with beanbags and comfortable chairs for truly flexible working! Regular events including BBQs and games, Welsh lessons during lunchtime in the form of Ukulele and Yoga classes, and free cake are part and parcel of what tenants can expect. Events with Google and Microsoft, an in house maker space and all the business support makes this the best place for Welsh businesses to succeed.


An ethos of being different, taking risks, of working hard and trying to create something new, is celebrated with a Pirate ethos. The Jolly Roger, in the form of protective glasses and test tubes, flies proudly outside the front entrance to remind everyone that M-SParc is a little bit different.

Pryderi ap Rhisiart, Managing Director, said “We spend over a third of our time at work, so it should be somewhere we feel happy going to, and should contribute positively to our lives and ultimately to the Welsh economy.”

The table football and tenant BBQs are fun, but they’re also productive; our tenant companies come and speak to each other informally, and in that environment the best business connections are often made.


We provide dedicated business support to ensure our tenant companies have the best chance of surviving, growing, and contributing to the regional economy, and we do this all by being more Pirate! We go that extra mile, take the extra risk, and ensure we’re right behind our tenants and their new ideas.”

The fun workspace is not just a gimmick, but a way to encourage a different frame of mind. Tenant companies are celebrated, and feel part of something bigger, a movement which supports and nurtures them to grow without a corporate tension and fear of failure lurking in the background. With its positive staff and colourful graphics, M-SParc is not just a building, but a workspace people want to be a part of.


The fact that the occupancy target of 40% by the second year of trading has been exceeded, with 70% of the space already let, shows M-SParc is definitely doing something right. With 24 jobs and 12 student work placements created in the past year, this is only the start of what a collaborative and exciting workplace can help people achieve.

Tonight, tenants and staff raced on office chairs to raise money for St David’s Hospice. Tomorrow, they host a ‘Starting and Running your Business’ workshop in the boardroom. There’s never a dull moment on board M-SParc.
