Capital offices receive best workplace tribute

AN office complex in the Capital has been named the best refurbished or recycled workplace in Scotland.

Virgin Money’s new office at St Andrew Square was awarded the accolade, which recognises significant work on a building to adapt it for modern use, by the British Council for Offices.

Virgin Money was praised for its innovative transformation of a listed building into an original and welcoming place for staff, guests and customers. Spokesman Graeme Tones said: “This is a fantastic achievement for the Virgin Money team and our internal architects, Spacelabs. Our offices in Edinburgh are modern, bright, spacious and offer a fantastic setting for staff and customers.

“Traditional banks have a transactional in and out model. We want people to linger, and enjoy being part of our club – both customers and community.”
