Sustainable office space welcomes Pulsant to Edinburgh Park

SCOTS property company Knight Property Group has welcomed a further tenant to its £20m sustainable office building in Edinburgh Park.

Pulsant, an IT and digital edge infrastructure provider, have moved into the office space at 4-5 Lochside Avenue on a ten-year lease.

The company has moved from South Gyle, with Lochside Avenue now being home to around 80 people.

Knight invested £20m into the redevelopment of the three-storey 4-5 Lochside Avenue, which has made it one of Edinburgh Park’s most sustainable office buildings.

The building is all-electric, with an EPC ‘B+’ rating and offers occupiers a net zero in operation office, aligned to Net Zero targets and Scottish Government ‘New Build Heat Standards.’

With headquarters in Maidenhead, Pulsant has further offices in Edinburgh, Gateshead and London, along with a national network of 12 data centres across the UK.

April Clark, Chief People Officer of Pulsant said:”This move marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for our Scottish team.

“As a company, we were really keen to create a more collaborative and flexible workspace to better support our hybrid working approach, and 4-5 Lochside Avenue is the ideal environment for our people to come together and connect and to enable our ambitious business development and growth strategy.”

Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group, added: “Pulsant’s move to 4-5 Lochside Avenue has been welcomed with tremendous enthusiasm among all parties involved.

“Their alignment with our commitment to fostering a more sustainable future is highly valued.

“We take immense pride in the accomplishments at 4-5 Lochside Avenue, and we are currently engaged in positive discussions regarding the remaining space within the building.”

Cameron Stott, Lead Director of JLL Scotland said: “Demand from high-calibre occupiers to take space at 4-5 Lochside Avenue has been very positive and Knight’s approach to sustainability was a key factor in attracting Pulsant to the building.

“Knight is being rewarded for their pioneering retro-first approach with this building.”

Geoff Scott, Director and Head of Edinburgh at Lambert Smith Hampton added: “Pulsant considered a number of options in Edinburgh Park, but 4-5 Lochside Avenue was chosen due to location, excellent specification and strong environmental credentials.

“We wish them well in this new location.”

Edinburgh Park is home to 7,000 employees with surrounding occupiers including JP Morgan, Marsh, HSBC and Lloyds. Edinburgh Park benefits from good local amenities, including the Gyle Shopping Centre and Hermiston Gait Retail Park.

JLL and CBRE are letting agents for Knight Property Group, whilst Lambert Smith Hampton advised Pulsant.
