Read the brief & results
"Claremont's consultative approach was the deciding factor for DWF. Winning staff buy-in was critical to making the merger a success, and the project team put an emphasis on communication throughout the process, conducting staff interviews and surveys to get it just right." Karl Warmbold, Director of Facilities

The brief

DWF had a challenging brief, with a focus on shaping the space to deliver better team work and client interaction experiences, while balancing the need to store large volumes of case files on-site. With space at a premium in the city, this meant assiduous workspace planning, and this is where Claremont’s unique EOS workplace consultancy proved its worth.

Working in close partnership with DWF, Claremont’s team of designers created a space that harnesses agile working practices to deliver two floors of airy, spacious offices that deceptively contain a large volume of paper files and provide flexible working arrangements that will evolve to accommodate the large influx of new staff as the firm expands.

The results

Claremont started the process with a detailed consultation with DWF staff to identify key aspects of their work processes and to assess their agile working requirements. Our team also undertook a full storage audit to rationalise DWF’s requirements and make the most of the space. Harnessing agile working practices including freestanding quiet and meeting pods meant that the entire team could be united on one floor, which was key to the merger’s success.

The client suite reflects the firm’s branding, even down to the radial layout of communal spaces, along with the design of bespoke furniture, fittings and artwork. The clean look belies a technology overlay that integrates state-of-the-art audio visual and communications technology into the boardrooms and meeting spaces.

 

Claremont’s consultative approach was the deciding factor for DWF. Winning staff buy-in was critical to making the merger a success, and the project team put an emphasis on communication throughout the process, conducting staff interviews and surveys to get it just right. This even involved fine-tuning shared resource areas and print points, and this attention to detail impressed us.
