A growing national law firm is undertaking a complete overhaul of its offices in Norwich city centre.

After 15 years in Whitefriars, Mills & Reeve is renovating the Jarrold-owned site to create a more flexible working space – using ideas from staff to inform its design.

During the six month refurbishment – due to start this month – more than 200 Norwich-based staff will be moving to temporary offices in adjacent buildings, also owned by Jarrold.

Last year the firm launched an online engagement platform for employees in the city and further afield to submit ideas for the new-look offices. The plans were announced in a series of presentations.

Local company Pentaco Construction has been appointed to carry out the refurbishment.

James Hunter, head of the Norwich office and project leader, said: “We want to create a modern, attractive and more flexible working environment for us and our clients. This is a big investment by the firm and a really exciting project.”
