The three-story phased construction project at the offices of Reed Smith LLP consisted of the complete demolition and interior renovations of the 10th, 11th, and 12th floors to expand and upgrade the existing law offices. In order to complete the large scope of work in blocked phases, rand coordinated extensively with Gensler to maintain the design intent and with JLL, Hines, the client, and neighboring tenants to deliver the scope on time and within budget.
To expand the existing office and maximize the functional space within the law firm, the design reconfigured the entire layout of the firm to eliminate negative space. The build team implemented the layout by demolishing and rebuilding all interior partitions. With a focus on increased collaborative, flexible and shared workspace and smaller private offices, conference rooms and meeting rooms of various sizes are built with glass demountable partitions in order to accommodate audiences and groups of all sizes. Construction elements include a custom energy-efficient lighting package featuring the Lutron lighting system, a Pinecrest wall with a glass panel condition, stone flooring, ceramic tile, and glass backsplash. The team installed an additional restroom as well as a full catering kitchen to accommodate the firm’s growing needs.
