Drinker Biddle and Reath LLP

INDUSTRY: LAW

“The service Nutbourne provides is top quality – from initial request for information and proposal to the execution of the activity and de-brief. We were extremely impressed by the way in which Marcus Evans and his team project managed the fit out of our London office and went above and beyond the call of duty in providing a first class yet friendly service from beginning of project to the end. As we are a start-up office, Marcus was also very helpful in referring us to a number of excellent service providers whom we now have on board. We would not hesitate to recommend Nutbourne.”

– Marcia

THE ISSUE

With a substantial presence in the United States, Drinker Biddle and Reath wanted to establish their first UK office in London. With a high level of professionalism and a very prestigious reputation Drinker Biddle and Reath wanted to establish an office base that reflected this. The main issue was that, the key decision makers being spread across America, the decision making process was complex and negotiation difficult. An additional consideration was that plans needed to be detailed and self-explanatory, as all technology staff were located in the States.

THE SOLUTION

With the need to have a very professional image Drinker Biddle and Reath took a very central location at 50 Mark Lane. With a high-end look needed for the office design Nutbourne worked hard on a number of visual presentations to make sure that they were getting exactly what they wanted. These were distributed to all key decision makers in America until a consensus on the level of finish and the features of the space was agreed.


To make it look professional Nutbourne suggested a suspended ceiling in reception, feature lighting and number of products from the RJ Whites range. The project was carried out over an aggressive five week schedule, with Technology and Customer.
