Digital Health & Care Institute take 5,000 sq ft at Maxim

Maxim Office Park has today announced a prominent letting within Maxim 3 to the Digital Health and Care Institute (DHI), which is moving its operations to the park from its current base in Edinburgh.

DHI is taking 5,000 sq ft within the building and will be operational on-site from June.

Established by NHS24, the University of Edinburgh and the Glasgow School of Art, the DHI encourages innovation and collaboration in digital health to better prepare Scotland’s health services for the challenges of an ageing population. With the support of major funding from the Scottish Government, it explores new technological opportunities to promote better health and deliver a higher level of care.

With a focus on Scotland as a whole, the DHI was attracted by Maxim’s strategic location between Glasgow and Edinburgh, in the heart of the country and on the edge of the M8, with easy access to international airports. The close proximity to the motorway also provides excellent links to hospitals and academic institutions across the country.

Justene Ewing, CEO of the DHI, said: “In order to expand the DHI and promote the convergence of the technological and digital arena with healthcare in Scotland, we were seeking a flexible and modern property that boasted a great location as well as high quality office space and the opportunity for future growth. Maxim Office Park ticks all of these boxes for us and I am confident we have made a great choice in where to base our key activity hub.”

Craig Ritchie from Maxim Office Park said: “We have a wide variety of businesses based at the Park, from insurance brokers and boiler manufacturers to a biotechnology firm and a large scale public sector operation. It is testament to our excellent location and exceptionally flexible buildings that such a huge range of different companies choose to base themselves at Maxim.

“The space that we offer ranges from 2,000 sq ft small suites right up to an entire 187,200 sq ft building, so there really is an option to suit all needs.

“I’m positive the DHI will enjoy its new home at Maxim and I look forward to welcoming the team.”

Ryden and Cushman & Wakefield represented Maxim Office Park and GVA James Barr acted on behalf of the DHI.
