Withers & Rogers is one of the leading intellectual property law firms in the UK and Europe. Claremont was appointed to carry out the phased office refurbishment works at One Redcliff Street in Bristol. This also included the supply and installation of new office furniture, while the client remained in occupation throughout the duration of the project.
Withers & Rogers wanted a contemporary workspace environment to reflect their brand and accommodate all partners in cellular office spaces. The firm needed to be able to efficiently maximise square footage to increase employee numbers, while keeping current storage levels and print areas. In a sublet space on an additional floor, the firm required a new client suite with a large boardroom area to hold up to 32 people as well as a number of smaller meeting rooms.
Claremont was appointed to undertake the works based on the ability to demonstrate a clear understanding of the brief to provide a contemporary office design while working with existing elements of the building, and to illustrate a clear programme of works, including two decants of staff in four phases over an efficient 14 week period.
Claremont’s office interior for Withers & Rogers incorporates the firm’s branding throughout. The new glass partitioning with branded coloured manifestation form the cellular offices and provide a light and more open feel to the space.
Neutral carpets with accent colour features were laid throughout and feature lighting installed. Claremont fitted out the space, re-using all existing ceiling tiles, lighting and floor boxes and supplemented these where necessary. New furniture was installed, which included Staverton desking, Orangebox seating and meeting tables from Wiesner Hager.
The result of the new office design and refurbishment successfully maximises the square footage of Withers & Rogers’ workplace while providing space for future expansion.
Claremont has created a light and contemporary place to work with welcoming meeting facilities for staff and their clients.
