Projects / Orchard Brae House
Presenting a marketing challenge for agents JLL, the remaining office space in Orchard Brae House was an unconventional shape and smaller in size. Experienced in working on CAT A+ fit-out in the London market, Bureau recommended this ‘plug and play’ solution. For the client, Palm Capital, it was the right fit, at the right time.
New for the Edinburgh commercial property market, CAT A+ offers a convenient and flexible alternative to a serviced office. Fully furnished and with connectivity, tenants can move in immediately. For landlords, this can significantly reduce the vacancy period as well shortening potential rent-free periods. For cautious clients it offers flexibility and low investment whilst still providing single occupancy. Typically used for offices between 2,000 — 8,000 ft², this creative solution was ideal for this 2,250 ft² space.
Having worked within the building on previous projects, a project team comprising of Form Design, PMP and Scotwood were assembled. Bureau consulted with Form Design to create an agile and contemporary space with wide appeal to SMEs or start-ups.
“When we approached Craig Watson, JLL with our CATA+ product offering it was soon made apparent this model would be a perfect fit for their client Palm Capital. The whole project team got on board and have delivered a fantastic, flexible and inviting office that is ready for occupation straight away” Alex Cox, Bureau North Regional Director.
Careful space planning has made maximum use of the unusual triangular shape. The flexible furniture options selected allow for future reconfiguration to suit different tenants. And the home-from-home feel with good use of colour, soft seating and planting creates an inviting interior.
