The global professional accounting body, ACCA, have confirmed plans to relocate their London office headquarters in December of this year, with staff moving in by January 2016. The deal, which will see them leave their current headquarters located in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Holborn, was signed on May, 8th.
Having accumulated a significant amount of real estate in Holborn in recent years, ACCA, chief executive, Helen Brand, said, “Since 1996, our London operations have been spread across a number of locations in Holborn. Over time, this arrangement has become increasingly unfit for purpose.”
The move will take them to the historic Adelphi building on John Adam Street. The deal saw them lease two floors, which is designed to provide suitable space for staff, students, partners and stakeholders from around the globe while also providing sufficient space for projected future growth.
Brand said of the new building, “This historic building will be undergoing a complete refurbishment over the coming months to provide us with the mix of heritage and modernity that defines the ACCA brand.
“Our new home will provide us with a dynamic, inspiring and sustainable workplace […] a world class London headquarters that befits our world class organisation.”
