In 2012 leading law firm Boyes Turner embarked on a significant building refurbishment program in conjunction with their Landlord, Scottish Widows, and co-tenant, Deloitte. The phased refurbishment of Abbots House saw all of the tenanted space stripped out and completely refurbished together with an increase of total useable floor space within the building and significant reconfiguration of the common parts as well as replacement of most of the M & E equipment. As part of this program Boyes Turner relocated from the first floor to the third and fourth floors, increasing their occupied space from 22,000 sq. ft. to 30,500 sq. ft. The opportunity allowed the client to completely redesign and modernise not only the space they occupied but also their working practices. The decision was therefore taken to replace all of their old furniture with modern, more efficient and effective modular furniture to enhance the working space experience and facilitate the new working practices and efficiencies they were seeking to achieve.
