The office location is the decision of the local team, though approved by Cadence's global facilities team in terms of cost and function suitability. Princes Street is one of the major thoroughfares in central Edinburgh and the main shopping street of the capital. Most of the street is limited to public transport and bikes. It represents an outstanding environment for young professionals willing to work in an environmentally friendly place, with many amenities and recreational spots at hands. 

Cadence objective was to create an inspiring and efficient office environment that would support staff well-being while increasing attraction to new talents. It was achieved through flexible workspaces which meet the teams' desire for both personal and shared spaces. The furniture elements, carefully selected to offer ergonomic, comfort and a modern feel, create an agile yet soothing environment. 

"Whilst organisations will still look to leverage their property needs, there is now a greater appreciation of the importance to meet the needs of a diverse global workforce.”​
