Commercial property consultancies Savills and Avison Young represented Ediston.
Ben Thacker, a director in the national offices team at Savills, said: “Axa undertook a review of their property requirements last year.
“A number of alternatives were considered but the business opted to remain at St Philips Point, surrendering part of their space on the upper floors and consolidating occupation into a large single floorplate on the first floor.”
Axa now occupies a total of 27,990 sq ft in the building across three separate floors.
Lambert Smith Hampton advised Axa.
