Graham + Sibbald, which has more than 200 employees and 20 partners working across its 15 UK offices in Scotland and London, also project managed the 2014 redevelopment of the Waverley Bridge travel centre for Lothian, which is the UK’s largest municipal bus operator.

The property firm has also carried out fit-out projects on behalf of the Scottish Government, at Scotland House in the European Quarter of Brussels last year and Scotland House in London in 2017.

Senior partner Les McAndrew said: “49 Shandwick Place is a significant project for Graham + Sibbald, Lothian and the city as a whole.”
