K&L Gates is a fully integrated global law firm with lawyers located across five continents, representing leading global corporations in every major industry, capital markets participants and ambitious middle-market and emerging growth companies. Their Brisbane office have occupied their tenancy for the last 7 years, and with the re-sign at their existing premises location, they took the opportunity to reconfigure their front of house and boardroom suites to meet the evolved needs of the business. Working areas were refreshed with upgraded finishes and lighting throughout.
The client facing areas needed remodelling to provide flexible & reconfigurable spaces that enable client entertainment and regular conferences & functions. The design aesthetic is consistent with their global design standards, a clean and timeless palate that incorporates key art pieces. The battened ceiling provides a connective element through the foyer and reception space, guiding visitors in. The reception has been opened up to maximise the view of the river and enhance the natural light into the space.
Quadric were engaged on a Construction Management basis with early builder involvement to deliver on time with several long-lead time items such as Audio-Visual and custom operable walls. This management involved a staged procurement approach involving early works and main works allowing the client to have certainty over budget whilst maintaining program.
