JLL also provided project-management and technical expertise while the space underwent a £1.3 million makeover in readiness for its opening earlier this year by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Gordon Rogerson, building consultancy director at JLL, said: “We’re really pleased to see Zurich in its new Glasgow accommodation which we helped select based on specific criteria.

“Zurich’s expansion in the city is further testament to the strength of Glasgow’s office occupier market.”
