Mills & Reeve moved to the St James development in the summer of 2003. In doing so, we were able to transform the operation of our business by shedding outdated offices and replacing them with modern, high quality, open plan accommodation

High Specification Offices

The expectations of modern businesses for their working environment are increasing to exacting standards.

Jarrold & Sons recognise this trend and each building will be designed and specified in accordance with the relevant British Council for Offices (BCO) Best Practice Guide in specification for offices.

Office floors will be left to open plan ready for fitting out by tenants. The layout of the structure, fenestration and services will be such that the office areas may be used equally effectively as open plan accommodation or can be readily divided by a tenant to provide cellular offices, meeting rooms, specialist areas and the like.

The building emission rating calculation for the building, required under building regulations approved document part L2, will allow for up to 15% office cellularisation for the open plan office.
