NautaDutilh is looking for a new location in the heart of Zuidas, Amsterdam’s leading business district. The organisation has specific wishes for the interior design and technical installations of the new office.
The challenge Strategic housing is of course not the core business of an international law firm such as NautaDutilh. For this comprehensive project, they therefore go in search of an all-round representative, coordinator and controller to ensure that their wishes will be incorporated in the building’s shell to the greatest possible extent.
Our approach First of all, CBRE mapped out NautaDutilh’s specific requirements regarding the working concept, interior design and technical installations. After examining the feasibility of these wishes, the findings and recommendations were discussed with the client. Before the assignment was undertaken, all parties signed a cooperation agreement in which the tenant’s wishes were clearly defined.
The project From selecting an interior architect and developing the design process to offering the interior design for bidding based on a pre-established schedule of requirements, this project demonstrated the full strength of our integrated approach. Our multidisciplinary team also supervised the mandatory BREEAM certification and contributed to the development of a design that not only highlights NautaDutilh’s identity but also ensures that the interior reflects the desired working concept.
The team then drew up a realistic budget and took care of the entire tender. As project manager, we maintained communication with all stakeholders throughout the construction phase. The client received weekly updates on progress, planning, budget, possible challenges and proposed solutions. As work progressed, the team performed quality checks, and supervised and took care of all aspects of the furnishing process.
The quality and appeal of the new office fully lives up to NautaDutilh’s expectations, not least the entrance and the restaurant flooring. In the field of interior implementation too, CBRE took all the work off NautaDutilh’s hands. The working concept has been integrated into the professional context: each lawyer has a work space for themselves and their team and there are places where employees can come together.
