West Auckland legal firm, Price Baker Berridge, were expanding their practice and had outgrown their space. They needed to provide additional offices as some of the staff were having to share.
PBB wanted design advice to help them assess whether they should stay and refurbish the floor or make the decision to move to a new 4-star green rated building.
Partner, Clinton Baker said "Our premises were a perfect example of a 1970's office that needed upgrading. We wanted to present a dynamic, modern and professional image to our clients and staff."

"Having a designer who had vision and expertise was what we were looking for. We needed someone to herd us in the right direction. Diane helped us reach the conclusion that demolition and a refit wasn't worth doing and that relocating was the right choice for us."
“The multidisciplinary aspects of a fit-out are a lot to manage. Diane dealt with the contractors and provided a valuable check on costs for us. We didn't have to make too many decisions. It was all handled for us by Malcolm & Sumner."
"Relocating to a 4-star green rated building will be good for the long term to future-proof our business. We're proud to be in an environmentally friendly building and the many benefits associated with that."
“We have better views and the natural light is such a fantastic feature. It's such a contrast to our old offices. Our clients have been very complimentary about our new premises."
“We used the opportunity to upgrade our IT infrastructure and storage systems. The mobile shelving system has far exceeded our expectations."
“Our staff agreed that a change would be great. They were involved in the planning from the very beginning once we made the decision to move."
"Our team is happier and our clients are happier. Coming to work is now a far more pleasant experience."
