The Welcome Building, our design in Bristol will see International law firm DAC Beechcroft move in later this year when the project completes in Q2. The firm has taken levels six and seven of the 207,000 sq ft building, which is being delivered by a joint venture by our clients Tristan Capital Partners, and Trammell Crow Company.
DAC Beachcroft is relocating more than 800 members of staff to the building from the firm’s current home in Portwall Place.
The Welcome Building will be an all-electric workspace with PV cells on the roof and is targeting net zero carbon in operation and BREEAM Outstanding for the building.
Toby Pentecost, senior vice president and head of UK offices at Trammell Crow Company, said: “Having recently celebrated the topping out of the site, we are incredibly proud to be able to announce the arrival of DAC Beachcroft. This is a great result underlining the amazing space and amenities Welcome Building has to offer. With sustainability and wellbeing at the very heart of the project, we are in discussions with several other occupiers as we head towards completion.”
James Brodie, managing director, at Tristan Capital Partners, added: “Welcome Building is an exemplar development providing high-quality ESG certified workspace set within a thriving part of Bristol city centre. Companies are continuing the flight to quality seeking premises which combine best-in-class workspace, modern amenities, ESG credentials and a great location, all of which Welcome Building offers.”
Ben Daniels, Bristol location head at DAC Beachcroft, said: “Providing our colleagues with a high quality working environment that supports flexible working and collaboration is a priority for us. Welcome Building is ideally located in the centre of Bristol with great travel links and adaptable working spaces. We were also impressed by the building’s excellent sustainability credentials and its emphasis on creating a local community.”
