WYG, the global programme, project management and technical consultancy, is to relocate to new offices at The Cube on Edinburgh’s Leith Street.
The firm has signed a lease agreement with landlord Hasna Invest for the 5,467 sq. ft. fourth floor office space at The Cube, as well as two car parking spaces. WYG’s current offices in George Street will be vacated by 30 March.
WYG employs over 1,400 people and operates from more than 50 locations across the UK, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. The multidisciplinary firm offers the services of designers, project managers, transport planners, engineers, surveyors, town planners, environmental specialists and business services professionals.
An iconic Edinburgh building set over six floors, The Cube offers Grade A office accommodation with a stunning five storey atrium and feature cantilever meeting space. Only ground floor space remains available in the building, where other occupiers include Glenmorangie, Bowleven, Bailie Gifford and Starbucks.
JLL acted on behalf of landlord Hansa Invest. WYG represented itself.
Craig Watson, Director for JLL in Scotland, said:
“The supply of Grade A office space in city centre locations continues to dwindle, and Edinburgh’s east end is proving to be a draw for occupiers following recent and ongoing development and improvements to Waverley Station, St Andrew Square and the tram network.
“This letting to WYG enhances the superb mix of tenants already occupying The Cube, with limited availability remaining for interested parties.”
Gordon Buchan, WYG’s Edinburgh Director, commented:
“I am delighted to announce this move which is a highly visible sign of WYG’s growth, not only in Scotland but across the UK. Our new office will allow WYG to continue to expand across all sectors, helping serve our diverse range of clients, from renewable energy developers to retail operators and from the MoD to National Grid. This is an exciting time for the firm and we are looking forward to the future with confidence.”
