Consultancy makes ‘important relocation’ in increase for Glasgow workplace market

BJSS has rented nearly 8,000 square feet of office space from Picton in its 180 West George Street building in the city center.

Picton renovated the building’s reception area last year to provide residents with more lounge space and created a “shared touchdown business lounge area” with space to “work, meet, relax and collaborate”.

“We now have more space and a work environment that encourages greater collaboration and does justice to our hybrid work model. We are excited to move into our new office in the heart of Glasgow city center and continue to contribute to the local economy. ”

BJSS will join several other occupiers at 180 West George Street, including Arcadis, Mathworks, and Peninsula Business Services.

Charles Micklethwaite of Heaney Micklethwaite represented BJSS on the transaction, while real estate agencies Ryden and Knight Frank acted on behalf of Picton. Refurbishment work was carried out by Trident and G53.

Gillian Giles, Associate at Ryden said, “It is great to see Picton continue to invest in the building and despite difficult market conditions, workplace accommodations with the right specifications and walk-throughs will continue to attract and secure users.”

Tim Hamlin, Director of Asset Management at Picton added, “We are delighted to welcome BJSS to 180 West George Street and to support them with the right space for their business and future growth plans.”
