Andy Hargrave, divisional director at ISG, said: “Sustainability and efficiency are central tenets to the fit out scheme and there is a strong emphasis on the adoption of best of breed technology solutions to drive DLA Piper’s environmental commitments and future proof it new headquarters.”
At first floor level, ISG will create an employee restaurant, alongside a comprehensive range of wellbeing facilities, including a gym and multi-faith room. Floors two to five will feature a mix of open plan office space, internal meeting rooms, project rooms and collaboration spaces.
The two upper floors will be fitted out to an exacting specification, with client meeting and dining facilities and a separate reception. ISG will also form a 200-seat auditorium on floor eight.
The fit out includes the installation of advanced building controls, including QR code access systems and the scheme is targeting a BREEAM Excellent environmental performance rating.
