One St Peter’s Square, Manchester – the new offices of DLA Piper
DLA Piper is a global law firm with lawyers located in more than 40 countries throughout the Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. Its clients range from multinational, Global 1000, and Fortune 500 enterprises to emerging companies developing industry-leading technologies.
At its offices in One St Peter’s Square, Manchester, Style was specified to create flexible space in DLA Piper’s boardroom working with architect, TP Bennett and contractor, COMO.
In the heart of the City’s core, One St Peter’s Square is a stunning addition to the Manchester skyline. It combines 271,000 sq ft of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Grade A office accommodation with large and efficient 22,000 sq ft floorplates.
Across thirteen floors, Style has installed moveable partitioning wall systems on floors 5 to 13, totaling 5 Skyfold, 4 DORMA Moveo, 1 DORMA Moveo Glass, and 1 Fabric finished DORMA Variflex Semi Automatic – all for blue chip clients KPMG, Addleshaw & Goddard, and now DLA Piper.
The 2 Skyfolds installed for DLA Piper quickly divide the main boardroom into individual meeting rooms when required. This acoustic moveable wall is housed in the ceiling cavity and descends effortlessly into place at the push of a button, finished in a variety of fabric finishes across each section and a white laminate at the base.
“We are delighted to have been chosen to create flexible office space on so many floors of this stunning building, and by several different companies,” said Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the North.
“It reflects the breadth of our proposition that we have the products and technical skill to meet any requirement, room configuration or budget and One St Peter’s Square has become a real showcase for us in Manchester.”
