Every new construction project comes with a getting-to-know-each-other phase for the team. Getting around the site, gaining access to the building, and developing relationships with unfamiliar subcontractors often requires a learning curve before getting into an efficient rhythm. However, when BakerHostetler, a leading American law firm, hired Structure Tone to manage the construction of their space at 1735 Market Street, we were more than ready to hit the ground running. With thorough and precise execution, our Philly team completed BakerHostetler’s office just as they envisioned it.
Even with the unique challenges of law construction, such as sound proofing or high-end architectural finishes, our team jumped right in due to decades of experience working with law firms in general and within the 1735 Market St. building more specifically. Most, if not all, of the subcontractors, security personnel, and building managers had worked with our team previously, so solving challenges and developing site-specific logistics was mostly smooth sailing.
BakerHostetler’s office now reflects a sophisticated environment that matches the firm’s brand. The scope consisted of a mixture of open workstations and enclosed offices, conference rooms, focus rooms, wellness room, support services area, copy and filing room, training room, restrooms, IT room, server room and multiple pantries. Sound-masking and double-layered walls surround breakout and conference rooms to ensure client privacy and security.

“This was one of the most positive buildouts we have encountered over the years,” says Lee Jensen, Baker Hostetler Director of Administration. “Our space turned out better than anticipated and a lot of that had to do with Vincent, his team, and their ability to produce a quality project.”
