Krieg DeVault LLP, One Indiana Square
Three years ago, severe damage to the exterior window wall of One Indiana Square, Krieg Devault’s office building in downtown Indianapolis, was caused by a hurricane. Krieg DeVault’s office space was seriously impacted and the staff has been faced with an entirely new curtain wall system being constructed around them. As a result of this renovation and a number of other improvements resulting from the storm damage, including new tenant lighting and ceiling systems, new HVAC infrastructure, new base building restrooms, and a new life safety system and window treatment, Krieg DeVault has decided to remain in the tower.
Krieg DeVault is using the opportunity of this unfortunate circumstance and their upcoming renovation to redefine themselves and their workplace solution. The new workplace solution will incorporate a universal office for every attorney at 150 square feet per office, hoteling offices for visiting lawyers to Indianapolis from other Krieg DeVault offices, a substantially reduced library collection with the remaining collection being dispersed amongst three practice floors and a new reception and conference center for the majority of the firm’s conferencing needs. A new staff lunchroom will be placed on the window wall with upgraded finishes and audio visual equipment. The lunchroom will be used as a meeting space for internal meetings during the course of the day, at non peak lunch hours, freeing up the conference rooms for client meetings.
A new brand identity and firm logo, currently under development, will speak to a more forward thinking, progressive Krieg DeVault, supported by the new workplace solution. This refreshed direction will incorporate a timeless design solution, thoughtful graphics, energy efficient indirect lighting solutions and state-of-the-art audio visual technology. The new workplace solution with result in less than 650 rentable square feet per attorney and a design flexibility allowing Krieg DeVault to quickly make modifications to secretarial and paralegal areas and support functions with minimal cost. The NELSON design solution calls for the number of workplace standards for various staff to be markedly reduced .This approach, coupled with a demountable partition system and flexible workstations, will create the flexibility Krieg DeVault desires in order to respond to the ever changing nature of the legal industry.
