Two UK firms check in to Edinburgh’s Excel House

26th May 2016

Two of the UK’s leading professional services firms have relocated to a modern Grade A office set in the heart of Edinburgh's Exchange District.

Excel House, on 30 Semple Street, has been chosen by Begbies Traynor, the UK's largest professional services consultancy specialising in areas of corporate recovery, insolvency and finance, as the new site for its Edinburgh HQ. The firm has leased 1,636 sq ft in a five year deal.

Begbies Traynor will be joined in Excel House by QMPF, an independent corporate finance adviser focused on education, infrastructure and energy. The firm has let 1,699 sq ft of space on the 2nd floor on a five year sub-lease from MacRoberts LLP.

The sub-lettings have been secured on the back of a decision by MacRoberts LLP to split the 2nd floor space into four suites, better matching the most active size bracket in Edinburgh’s office market. The deals mean that the 2nd floor of Excel House is now 60% occupied with only two remaining suites totalling c. 2,835 sq ft (515 sq ft & 2,320 sq ft respectively).

Within 5 minutes of Haymarket train station and over 15 bus routes on its doorstep, the efficient open plan space at Excel House sits in a prime location within Edinburgh’s financial district. The flexibility of both the space and sub-lease terms on offer at Excel House, has made it a popular destination for the professional services industry.

Ryden acted on behalf of QMPF. Begbies Traynor was represented by Eddisons and JLL and BNP Paribas Real Estate acted for MacRoberts LLP.
