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 square feet 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.
“The reception area and entire first floor area is magnificent in every way. The tribute wall is great and tastefully done and I am pleased with the end result. As a senior member of this firm, I really appreciate your excellent efforts that restore pride in the history of Jones Day.”
