BOSTON, November 19, 2012 — Jones Lang LaSalle Construction has completed work as the general contractor for the new first class offices of the law firm of Bernkopf Goodman LLP at Seaport Place in Boston. The 18,420-square-foot relocation to the Seaport District from 125 Summer Street Boston serves as the law firm’s new Boston headquarters.

Designed by Visnick & Caulfield Associates, Inc., the ninth floor build out of Seaport East features: clear glass office fronts allowing sunlight throughout and panoramic seaport views, a centrally located conference center with state-of-the-art audio visual technology, private seating area, an attorney lounge and lunch room, five central conference rooms, unique fabric wall covering, and custom millwork. Finishes include a figured anigre, stone, carpet, ceramic tile flooring, and 3-form back lit panels at reception. The employee pantry and library are in the center of the space. Shapes and paths of travel are accentuated by ceiling transitions and floor patterns.

“It was a pleasure working with the Jones Lang LaSalle team,” stated Joseph J. Hinderhofer Chief Operating Officer of Bernkopf Goodman. “They were very responsive to our needs and executed the work in a professional and timely manner. After over twenty years at 125 Summer, we are looking forward to moving into our exciting new space.”

According to Jones Lang LaSalle Senior Vice President and Project Executive Barrie Ferraro: “This was a great collaborative effort among Jones Lang LaSalle and the entire Bernkopf Goodman management team.
