Project Description

An exciting, contemporary office interior was created for Avaloq’s new base in Canonmills, Edinburgh to high specification and tight timescales. The project creates office accommodation for 500 new jobs being created in the city.

Inward investment

Avaloq are a Swiss software developer specialising in back office systems for banks.  After extensive research the company chose Edinburgh as their first development site outside Switzerland.  A high profile and prestigious inward investment for Scotland, a key element of their decision to locate here was the availability of skilled IT graduates from local universities.

Rapid delivery

Axis was introduced to the client at a late stage of the project by GVA James Barr, Avaloq’s adviser and project manager. Once appointed as design and build contractor our challenge was to meet the extremely tight timescales. Working to an innovative design concept created by consultants Cubit 3D, the project consisted of creating reception, staff canteen & breakout area, training room, open plan office and breakout areas.

With detailed project management, careful planning and attention to every detail, we were able to deliver a high quality office fit-out on time and within budget.
