Law firm Gordons uses six-figure investment to create 'enhanced environment' at Leeds office
West Yorkshire law firm Gordons has completed a six-figure investment in enhancing the work environment of its Leeds office.
The law firm said the investment was made to create an ‘innovative working environment designed to further enhance interaction, problem solving and team work.’
As part of the re-design of two floors of its Whitehall Road office, breakout spaces have been created to allow Gordons’ people to work away from their desks, along with a relaxation area.
In addition, an activity room has been built to be used for fitness sessions and as a practice space for the firm’s resident band and choir.
The layout of the office space has been designed to enable the firm’s fee earners and support services teams to integrate, rather than sit in specialism-based silos.
The investment project was led by Gordons partner and head of operations, Victoria Davey.
Victoria explained: “We understand the importance of creating work spaces that facilitate interacting, working, relaxing and socialising.
“When designing our new office, we looked at a variety of different themes and layouts and chose a route which is distinct to Gordons that reflects our brand and values.
“The end result is an enhanced environment which improves everybody’s working day, boosts our productivity even further and fosters greater collaboration, all of which ultimately benefit our clients.”
Gordons has offices in Leeds and Bradford and employs 196 people. Clients include retailers B&M, Iceland and Morrisons; construction and high performance materials manufacturer Saint Gobain; international brewers Molson Coors; and the world’s largest electrical heating business, Glen Dimplex.
