Following a merger between WSP and Parsons Brinkerhoff the company is to let 10,544 sq ft of office accommodation on the seventh floor bringing together staff from two existing offices at Seaward Place and Nelson Mandela Place in Glasgow. The company, which has signed a ten year lease, will relocate its team to the seventh floor which it will occupy along with Brodies who have also leased the sixth floor.

Mark Broderick, Development Director BAM Properties, said: ‘We have attracted a stellar number of leading professional service companies which is a testament to the calibre of the building and office space available at CONNECT110NS. We are looking forward to the building coming to life as occupiers start to move in and are delighted to welcome WSP/Parsons Brinkerhoff.’

Additional office space occupiers include Deloitte LLP and Grant Thornton UK LLP, who will be the first to move into the building later this month. The first, second, third and fourth floors totalling 74,288 sq ft remain available for lease within the nine storey building.
