KNIGHT PROPERTY GROUP’S landmark sustainable office building in Edinburgh Park, 4-5 Lochside Avenue, is celebrating a new tenant as Pulsant, a leading IT and digital edge infrastructure provider, moves into the Grade A office space. The ten-year lease covers 10,065 sq ft on the first floor, making Pulsant the second tenant to join the redevelopment project, following Lumacron Technology’s move in September.
Pulsant, founded in 1995 and recognized as the UK’s premier edge infrastructure provider, relocated from South Gyle to the revamped Lochside Avenue building. The sustainable and modern office space will now accommodate around 80 Pulsant employees, marking an exciting new chapter for the company’s Scottish team.
April Clark, Chief People Officer of Pulsant, expressed enthusiasm for the move, stating, “As a company, we were 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.”
Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group, welcomed Pulsant to the building, emphasising their alignment with sustainability goals. “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,” Crawshaw added.
Rather than demolishing the pavilion-style structure, Knight invested £20 million in the comprehensive redevelopment, making 4-5 Lochside Avenue one of Edinburgh Park’s most sustainable and modern office buildings. The all-electric building boasts an EPC ‘B+’ rating, offering occupiers a net zero in operation office, in line with Net Zero targets and Scottish Government ‘New Build Heat Standards.’
Cameron Stott, Lead Director of JLL Scotland, noted that Knight’s commitment to sustainability played a crucial role in attracting Pulsant to the building, and Geoff Scott, Director and Head of Edinburgh at Lambert Smith Hampton, added that Pulsant chose 4-5 Lochside Avenue for its location, excellent specification, and strong environmental credentials.
Edinburgh Park, housing 7,000 employees, features prominent occupiers like JP Morgan, Marsh, HSBC, and Lloyds. Local amenities, including the Gyle Shopping Centre and Hermiston Gait Retail Park, enhance the appeal of the area.
JLL and CBRE serve as letting agents for Knight Property Group, while Lambert Smith Hampton advised Pulsant.
