DAS UK, the UK’s leading provider of specialist legal expenses insurance, is relocating its Bristol offices to 2 Trinity Quay, in one of the most significant deals for the city’s office market this year.
The letting of the 37,828 sq. ft. space will see DAS UK relocate its 550 Bristol employees from its current offices at DAS House and North Quay on Bristol’s Temple Back.
“The move marks the start of a new era for us, with the bright, modern, inclusive space offering more opportunities for flexibility and efficiency, while remaining in a central location close to rail, road and cycle networks. We’ve been working hard throughout the pandemic and our new offices – which are Covid-secure – mark an exciting development for us as we look to our next stage of growth,” said Andrew Burke, CEO, DAS UK Group.
For the first time, DAS UK’s law firm – DAS Law – will be co-located with the legal expenses insurance side of the business, providing an enhanced service to customers.
The office space has been designed with input from DAS UK employees and with their well-being in mind. Facilities include a café, library, multi-faith room, showers and learning zone, which will also be used for exercise classes.
The Landlord of 2 Trinity Quay is NatWest Group who was advised by CBRE and Avison Young, while DAS UK was advised by Cushman & Wakefield.
“A modern, Grade A office building, 2 Temple Quay has recently been refurbished and enjoys a unique waterfront setting,” said Richard Kidd, CBRE’s Head of Office agency across the South West and South Wales.
“It offers DAS UK all the benefits of its existing offices, but with greater flexibility and a high spec environment that will support the company as it looks to the future.”
