Through thoughtful strategy and a strong partnership, Vocon helped Jones Day to reduce their office footprint and simultaneously expand their presence.
As a long-term partner to Jones Day, Vocon has an on-call agreement to provide consulting, support, and other design services. With more than half of their practice working from their offices at North Point complex in Cleveland, their main design objective is to showcase both their “One Firm Worldwide” corporate culture and celebrate their history with the city. Designs for new and renovated spaces are anchored to the lake and city life through the use of openness, natural light, and glass, providing a warm, welcoming, contemporary space.
We conducted a facility-wide, space-utilization study that enabled the firm to return 65,000 SF of space (two full floors) back to the landlord. We consolidated lawyer spaces, reduced vacancies, and created a new firm-wide Global Administration Center. By extending their lease, Jones Day obtained tenant improvement funds from the landlord that paid for a complete transformation of the lobby and conference center spaces.
