Accountancy and business advisory firm BDO LLP has signed a long-term lease at Glasgow’s 2 Atlantic Square.

At the heart of the city’s business district, the Grade A, BREEAM “Excellent” building will provide the ideal base for BDO’s team of 130 with room for growth as it looks to increase its headcount in the region.

The office accommodation has been developed to ensure a focus on sustainability and wellbeing. BDO’s offices will be designed to provide the firm with a modern, collaborative working space as the firm transitions into an agile workforce, with employees,

encouraged to work from wherever they feel most productive, a mixture of client sites, the office and from home.

Martin Gill, head of BDO in Scotland said: “It’s fantastic to be announcing our commitment to Glasgow as we continue to invest in our people and the Scottish market. BDO will continue to create jobs in Scotland over the long-term. We’re proud to support ambitious, growing businesses across Scotland’s economic engine as our team works hard to help them succeed.”

“This year has accelerated the pace of technological change to accommodate a more flexible and remote working model, which has seen BDO commit £10 million to fund investment in technology over the next few years and more than £8m to repurpose our office spaces. As such the way the BDO team blends its digital connectivity and physical space has never been a bigger priority. The space will allow for effective collaboration with each other, clients and colleagues in BDO’s global network.”
