The new headquarters for, Arthur Cox, one of Ireland’s leading law firms, provides state of the art office meeting and social spaces in an elegant, sophisticated and relaxed interior designed to reflect and enhance Arthur Cox’s corporate image, culture and values. Arthur Cox solicitors had outgrown their office space and the practice moved to a new Headquarters building in mid 2017.
The STW designed fit-out provides state of the art accommodation for approximately 650 staff, with expansion capability to take numbers to 800. Scott Tallon Walker Architects services included due-diligence on a number of buildings proposed by various developers including shell and core analysis and test fit solutions, international benchmarking, fit-out design and interior design.
Accommodation is arranged over 7 floors with 2 person cellular office accommodation to the floor plate perimeter, with support services located centrally. Shared facilities such as the staff cafeteria, training room etc are located at ground floor level with access from the main reception area and the central atrium. A variety of reconfigurable meeting rooms are located on the Client floor which is located at 6th floor level.
The fit-out design was carried out in BIM with full integration into the developers base build Revit model. Following an initial meeting with Arthur Cox, Scott Tallon Walker prepared a BIM Execution Plan for the project using the RIAI BIM Execution Plan template and guidance.
Where feasible, all design information was extracted from the federated models which combined the validated base build model, architectural model, mechanical and electrical models.
BIM proved very useful for presenting internal layouts for client review meetings. The completed models were issued to the client at handover.
