Case Study

Elevating Legal Status With a New Workplace

As the world’s largest law firm, DLA Piper didn’t want just any pedestrian space for its relocating Washington, DC office. After finding a nine-floor, 233,000-square-foot space as the primary tenant in a new downtown building still under construction, the firm’s executives tapped our project management expertise to create a prestigious, functional workplace worthy of DLA Piper’s image. Working closely with the client’s Managing Partner and Director of Administration as well as the building developer, our project team developed a plan to deliver a sophisticated workplace within eight months.
Serving as an extension of the client, our project team coordinated our design with building construction, and assisted DLA Piper in related needs ranging from security to food service operation and employee move management. The result: a spectacular nine-floor interior, including a lower level with concourse, glass-front offices facing into the building’s atrium, and multiple meeting, audio/video conference, caucus and executive board rooms designed for the specific needs of attorneys. Other enticements include a 70-seat upscale café adjacent to an outdoor terrace.

Just as pleasing as the physical aspects of DLA Piper’s new home is the fact that it was completed on time and within budget, so the firm could relocate from its previous space without incurring additional lease or construction costs.
