Verco Office Furniture

Law firm resolves meeting room needs in regional office fit-out

International law firm Eversheds has successfully met a need to blend new presentation technology into bespoke meeting room furniture within its relocation of 700 Leeds office staff from two buildings to a single, brand new 120,000 sq ft space at the Bridgewater Place development, the city’s tallest building.

Business interiors specialist Workscape recommended VERCO Office Furniture to make and supply a total of 22 purpose-built conference tables, with 25 matching credenza units capable of taking cable management, with matching cut out in the tops for access to power for power point presentations.

Chippenham-based Workscape had previously worked on a similar sized design and fit-out for Eversheds’ Cardiff office.


On this occasion, it provided the law firm’s Leeds office with a turnkey service involving interior design, establishing building services, developing and implementing office space plans, sourcing furniture and equipment and managing the move process of partners, lawyers and business services staff to the new location.

"Workspace played an invaluable role in helping us develop space plans from an initial open plan brief into a practical, innovative and flexible working environment," says Eversheds FM Paul Heinicke.


That flexibility was particularly important given that the firm’s lawyers had previously enjoyed the privacy of cellular office accommodation.

"We had a good idea of the type of meeting room furniture we needed to complement our client meeting room areas," says Paul.

He discussed these with Workscape to help build a brief to take to market. Several manufacturers capable of providing the bespoke furniture were short-listed.

Paul Heinicke attended a meeting with VERCO management at High Wycombe and the company was duly appointed.


The VERCO tables have maple veneer tops with 110mm walnut edge band and 5mm inlays on walnut aerofoil bases; the matching credenza units are also in maple and walnut. The furniture was made in a range of bespoke sizes with the largest table measuring 8750mm long x 2000mm wide.

"We chose VERCO ahead of other more prominent firms in the bespoke office furniture market and have not regretted the decision," says Paul.

"We felt very confident that they had the expertise and capability to meet our needs and were also prepared to be flexible to ensure that any design changes could accommodated as our ideas developed.


"As the project progressed we determined that we needed additional bespoke furniture items and went to VERCO for these also. We have been more than happy with their service and quality of product."

One of the largest full service law firms in the world, Eversheds operates from 34 offices in major cities across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
