Paull & Williamsons Offices Aberdeen

Michael Laird Architects are pleased to announce the completion of the interior fit out project for leading Aberdeen Solicitors Paull & Williamsons at Union Plaza in Aberdeen in approximately 26,800 sq.ft. of Grade A office accommodation on the sixth and one half of the fifth floor of the building. The accommodation benefits from panoramic views of the centre of Aberdeen and beyond but it is inside the building where the transformation has taken place.

Working closely with a Steering Group of Partners from P&W, a plan evolved which placed substantially glazed Partners’ Rooms in the centre of the floors to enable staff in the open plan areas on either side to benefit from light and air. Teams of lawyers and secretarial support staff are arranged around the 30 Partners’ Rooms bringing the total number of staff accommodated over the two floors to 160 with space to expand this number in the future if required. A degree of enclosure in the open plan office areas is provided through the use of storage cabinets in a range of heights to delineate the working groups and to avoid any concern that the new building would have regimented rows of desks.

The working areas in the Paull & Williamsons Office are separated from a Client-facing reception and meeting room suite on the fifth floor and there are quiet rooms for confidential matters, storage and filing areas, copier and printer areas, server rooms, a library, training room, tea points / break out areas and a small café.

The interior design is simple but vibrant through the use of a carefully chosen palette of strong colours to add interest and variety against a predominantly white background. In the meeting room suite there is a passing reference to the history of Paull & Williamsons through the contemporary display of magnificent leather bound legal volumes – seldom referred to now in the electronic age but reassuringly present, nonetheless.
