When MacRoberts LLP were looking for new office premises, they found a prime opportunity to move to the recently refurbished 10 George Street in the heart of Edinburgh. Originally built in the early 90s, the building was refurbished in 2019 in an excellent example of how existing properties can be updated and reused to make for efficient, sustainable use of the built environment. The city centre location coupled with wellness facilities and stunning panoramic views from the roof terrace made this office the ideal choice for MacRoberts’ new home.

The prestigious Scottish law firm were looking for a timely and efficient move, as well as an opportunity to create a space that welcomed the adoption of a hybrid working model to support their staff and business functions. We worked closely with the MacRoberts team to develop more collaboration space for team members, dedicated space for entertaining clients, and a clear boundary for public and private spaces.

Our Approach

Our design brief focused on providing a clean, modern working environment with a nod to their corporate identity. It was important to create different work settings that supported the company’s needs but kept security and privacy in mind. We designed dual purpose spaces for conferences and entertaining clients whilst ensuring private spaces could be accessed by authorised personnel only.

We called on our diverse skillset for this project, relying on our interior designers, architects, quantity surveyors, project managers and contracts team to deliver the project from initial site visit and sketch plan through to handover. Corporate Moves handled the final piece of the puzzle, collecting and delivering all office items from the previous location to help the MacRoberts team transition to their new space.
