A smart move

Built with the
environment and
occupier well-
being in mind

The contemporary offices sit behind a freestanding, tension-held façade. The building was comprehensively refurbished in 2014. It benefits from having Use Class E under the Town and Country Planning Act legislation and boats impressive sustainability credentials.

Davidson Building benefits from a bespoke occupier engagement App, by Locale, offering details on local amenities, live transport updates, and retail, restaurant and leisure promotions. The App also connects occupiers with the proactive and accessible building management team.
