The client was moving to a single floor in a new office –a major change from the classic old-fashioned cellular office arrangement. Their staff had been spread over multiple floors so needed change management expertise to help people at all levels adapt from that cellular office mind-set to a more open work environment, as well as a more efficient use of the space available.
We went through a detailed consultancy phase to understand DWFM Beckman’s hierarchy, the differing needs of the various legal specialities, and the requirements of each position. While a more sharing, interactive approach was requested, there were still general confidentiality considerations and senior lawyers with prestigious clients in particular required complete privacy.
We developed a unique workplace model, giving each position a work environment which enabled them to carry out their work efficiently and effectively, while providing the business with flexibility. Our interior design focused on scale, colours and materials that would together create a space that reflected the firm’s position as a forward-thinking, highly respected team with an international reach and reputation.
