PwC moves next door to E&Y
PricewaterhouseCoopers and Ernst & Young will become neighbours at More London Place, the firm said
PwC will move into a new building at 7 More London Place, a few doors along
from Ernst & Young.
The building will house around 6,000 PwC staff across 500,000 square feet,

‘The new offices will provide a high quality working environment for our
people and incorporate our approach to sustainable practices by using low carbon
and solar technologies,’ the firm said in a statement.
The planned move follows a spate of office relocations for the Big Four.
