Known as “Capsule”, the project has been created by building owner and manager Legal & General to provide a new type of flexible office accommodation.

Following the letting of the first Capsule suite to transport technology firm Trapeze Group, work has now commenced on the second phase, expected to complete next month.

David Philip, director and Edinburgh head of office at Paragon, which is providing project management and contract administration services, said Capsule “is already proving popular”.
