The firm, a “global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions”, is to occupy more than 18,000 square feet of the building with some 200 staff moving from its current office on Bath Street.

The deal follows a major refurbishment by Ardstone Capital on behalf of the Ardstone Regional Office Fund.

Sentinel is the first Grade A office refurbishment to complete in 2020 and will offer 63,700 sq ft of space, following a refurbishment that included a re-modelled reception and common areas. Phil Reid of Phil Reid Associates said: “Securing Sedgwick International UK as an occupier for Sentinel underlines the quality of the refurbishment that was undertaken at the building.”

Sarah Hagen, an associate at property consultancy Knight Frank in Glasgow, said: “Sentinel is a major, high-end re-design of one of Glasgow’s most distinctive office buildings.

“We have worked closely with Ardstone Capital and their design team to ensure that Sentinel offers exciting, future-proofed accommodation to suit a rapidly evolving occupier market.”

Michael Cecil, head of asset management at Ardstone Capital, added: “We have sought to deliver one of the very best buildings in Glasgow at a time when there is a real lack of high quality supply.

“We are delighted that such a globally recognised business has chosen Sentinel as their home in Glasgow for the long term.”

Phil Reid Associates, with joint agent Knight Frank, acted on behalf of the fund while Square Foot Consulting advised Sedgwick.
