PA Consulting Group has relocated its London headquarters to 10 Bressenden Place, following a 25 year tenancy at 123 Buckingham Palace Road. The new offices, in the also regally named London Victoria district, have been designed to complement the firm’s continued growth in the UK.

The international PA Consulting Group is an independent firm made up of over 2,600 people, with a world-wide presence represented by offices across the Americas, Europe, the Nordics and the Gulf. While the firm does boast a global reach, following campaigns of expansion in the US and Middle East as well as a growing partner-base in Scandinavia, the British-origin consultancy has not neglected its domestic efforts.

Following plans announced last year, the consulting, technology, and innovation firm has moved to new headquarters to accommodate for future developments in the UKHaving spent 25 years at 123 Buckingham Palace Road, the group has relocated to a brand new complex located at 10 Bressenden Place, in London Victoria. The new space was reportedly designed to create an inspiring work environment to support PA’s continuing growth.PA Consulting Group relocates headquarters to promote growth

Situated in a landmark building in the heart of the regenerated Victoria area, the new location will have more space for clients, along with 15 different varieties of interactive working areas in which staff can work. Both clients and consultants will also be able to make use of state-of-the-art workshop rooms, as well as being encouraged to collaborate in an innovation centre located in the office – a feature increasingly present in consulting industry offices, Synechron and Cognizant being two examples of other firms keen to foster tech-driven partnerships in their environments.

PA’s new London headquarters are also aimed at complementing PA’s Cambridge Technology Centre, which presently houses over 200 technologists, scientists and consultants. Accommodating technological prowess and nurturing innovation is key to the firm’s future prosperity, thanks to the booming digital transformation consulting market alone, worth $23 billion last year. As UK clients increasingly come to see technological solutions as a means to cancelling out the negative impacts of Brexit, being seen on the cutting edge of innovation is essential for the business plan of any consultancy looking to survive what may prove to be a tumultuous market over coming years.

Hamish Maule, Head of Operations at PA Consulting Group, said of the new locale, “We wanted to create a fresh and exciting space that will inspire our people and our clients to achieve even greater success. Technology and innovation is at the heart of what we do, so being able to move to a new office which allows us to weave this into the foundations of the office space has ensured that we can provide our clients – and our people – with a stimulating work environment that sets the precedent for how we see our business moving into the future.”
