National law firm Weightmans has appointed TSK to design and deliver its new Manchester office in No.1 Spinningfields, completing in spring 2018.
The relocation will see the firm combine its two existing Manchester offices, bringing its team together across 18,000 sq ft in the city’s tallest commercial building.
TSK has partnered with Weightmans to create an effective space that facilitates efficiency and promotes smart working. As a law firm focused on people, the flexible and contemporary workplace will also provide clients with a first-rate visitor experience.
An open-plan layout offers a collegiate atmosphere that will help unite the two previously separate offices, encouraging team growth and employee development.
The firm is also responding to changing staff requirements, embracing more efficient and flexible methods of working and introducing a truly agile approach, with a variety of work settings and the support and facilities to work remotely when required.
Account Director at TSK, Tim Crane said: “We’re really excited to be creating this workspace for Weightmans, bringing its whole Manchester workforce into one cohesive, flexible and contemporary space.
“Working closely with a business to fully understand its workplace needs and create a space that enables its team to thrive is exactly what TSK is about. Weightmans is embracing the future of workplace, tailoring its new home around its employees and clients alike, which is music to our ears.
“Following a successful year of creating effective workplaces in 2017, we’re thrilled to be appointed to be delivering such a great project for this client this year.”
A £73m development from Allied London, No. 1 Spinningfields has fast become the centre of Manchester’s commercial district. Towering above the city skyline, it houses a number of global businesses, with executive facilities including a food hall, rooftop restaurant and business lounge.
Richard Corran, Weightmans Partner and head of the Manchester offices commented: “No. 1 Spinningfields was absolutely the right choice for our new Manchester office. As the commercial centre of Manchester, we’re at the heart of business and near many of our clients.
“Relocating to such a distinct building, it is important for us to translate our company needs into the character of the space,” he continued.
“We’re incredibly excited to see our team and our clients work, collaborate and thrive in a space designed around them. Adding the world-class image of No. 1 Spinningfields into the mix, it reinforces our position as leading legal advisors in the city.”
