EY Glasgow invests for the future with new office move
16 June 2010: Global professional services firm EY will be moving to a state of the art office development – G1 – in Glasgow.
EY has signed a 15 year lease for over 20,000 sq ft of office space in HF Development’s (HFD) flagship development in George Square. The firm will move in May next year.
Underlining its continued investment in the Scottish market place, EY hopes its relocation from its current premises on 50 George Square will provide a powerful springboard for future growth.
Commenting, Hywel Ball, EY’s managing partner in Scotland said: “Scotland is critical to the firm’s growth plans in the UK and our investment in new office premises in Glasgow sends out a strong message about our ambitions and commitment to the marketplace.”
Douglas Nisbet, EY’s senior partner in Glasgow added: “The G1 building will provide a prestigious location, at the heart of Glasgow’s business community, from which to serve our clients; whilst the open plan office space and Victorian architecture will provide an inspiring and enjoyable setting for our people to work in.”
Stephen Lewis, HFD’s Development Director, commented “We are delighted to welcome EY to G1 – it is a testament to the quality of the development that it has attracted the highest calibre of occupier.”
