Atkins signs up for 2 Atlantic Square
BAM TCP Atlantic Square has secured engineering and project management consultancy Atkins Limited as the first occupier for Building 2 at Atlantic Square.
2 Atlantic Square is a speculatively built Grade A office development situated in the heart of Glasgow’s International Financial Services District.
A joint venture between BAM Properties and Taylor Clark Limited, 2 Atlantic Square features 96,650 sq ft of prime, sustainably built office accommodation presented across six floors with 7,000 sq ft retail/restaurant space on the ground floor.
Atkins is to lease 20,739 sq ft across the top sixth floor and part of the fifth floor, along with six basement car spaces. The company is expected to start fitting out works in the next few weeks.
Dougie Peters, managing director, BAM Properties, said: “There continues to be a strong demand for Grade A office accommodation, in the right location and with the best facilities, and we are delighted to welcome Atkins to Atlantic Square. As organisations seek a hybrid approach to working patterns, having the right environment has never been more crucial especially when thinking longer term about attracting the right talent pool.
“Our development has helped to invigorate the IFSD area and with more development ongoing and the improved facilities along the waterfront, it’s a vibrant part of the city in which to be located.”
Set within a mature landscaped public realm with seating areas, Atlantic Square features excellent sustainability credentials including an EPC ‘A’ rating and BREEAM Excellent standard. With a welcoming Wi-Fi enabled reception area, it also features a business lounge and 24-hour manned security. Recognising the changing shape of the office environment, there are 180 cycle racks, alongside 240 lockers, as well as plentiful shower facilities for cyclists and runners with complimentary towels and consumables.
Remaining space includes floor plates spanning from 15,917sq ft with a total of circa 70,000sq ft available. Further details are available from agents, CBRE, JLL and Ryden.
Atlantic Square Building 2 follows on the successful completion of Building 1, a 10 storey Grade A office building which was fully let to HM Revenue & Customs for a minimum of twenty years and sold to Legal & General.
