Irwin Mitchell appoints TSK for workplace transformation
The law firms will move into One St Peter’s Square in June 2018, relocating from its current base at Bauhaus on Quay Street.
The new office, which will be home to over 250 members of staff from the firm’s business and personal legal services divisions as well as its debt recovery subsidiary, Ascent, will comprise a variety of spaces designed to facilitate activity-based working, enhance collaboration and in turn drive efficiency and productivity.
TSK will be responsible for the entire project, from workspace planning and design to furniture procurement and assisting with employee engagement from start to finish.
Tim Crane, account director of TSK, said: “Irwin Mitchell’s move to One St Peter’s Square is an important milestone for their business, and we look forward to creating an office space that reflects its sense of community within the firm, and its values and aspirations. As a firm that invests heavily in its people, it’s important that the new office extends and cements that commitment - we will be focusing on creating a space that nurtures innovation and is an appealing environment in which to spend time and interact with colleagues.”
Sarah Ball, operations director at Irwin Mitchell said: “it is vitally important that our move to new offices provides an environment which enables our people to deliver client service of the highest quality as well as it offering a great place to work that is future proofed to support our vision.
“TSK knew what we were looking for and placed a focus on human centred design that anchors physical, social and mental wellbeing. The team impressed us with their approach of gaining data led insight from our people to inform the decisions which were made.
“We also want a space which builds on the attributes of the One St Peter’s Square building and the qualities of Manchester’s thriving business district.”
This latest appointment for TSK comes on the back of recent projects including AJ Bell’s 4 Exchange Quay (EQ4) which received global recognition for creating a high-performance headquarters; the new nine storey headquarters at 101 Embankment, completed in 2017 for Swinton and more recently, the new Kellogg’s HQ at MediaCity.
