Property law specialist, JB Leitch, has recently rebranded and moved into a refurbished four-storey office in the centre of Liverpool.

The law firm briefed Snook Architects to create an open plan, flexible office space which reflected the mature and serious aspirations of the legal practice. The new interior expresses the company’s modern and confident approach, with its warm, contemporary design.

Neil Dawson of Snook Architects, specified Heradesign for the project and explains why: “We wanted an alternative to the traditional suspended ceiling.

Heradesign ceilings are clever because, although a panelled system, the concealed grid disguises the fact that it is suspended (particularly with the nice chamfer detail on the edge of each panel).

Moreover, their natural colour and size softens the feel of the space.”

800m² Heradesign ceilings feature in the main reception, meeting rooms, open plan areas and the training, reading and social spaces.

Heradesign, with its unique, organic wood-wool woven surface, helps create an inspiring place to work and meet that has a welcoming ambience for staff and visitors.

The aesthetics are not the only characteristic that set Heradesign apart; it offers superior acoustics, fire resistance and ease of installation too.

Acoustic control is required in new offices.

Heradesign offers Class A sound absorption which effectively reduces all intrusive background noise in the open plan areas and ensures meeting rooms remain private. Architect, Neil Dawson, compliments Heradesign for its acoustic control, “the noise deadening nature of the fibre finish makes it superb for an open office environment.”

The environmental credentials of Heradesign give a further layer of appeal to the product.

The wood-wool is sourced from sustainable forests which are FSC and PEFC certified. Heradesign panels come with a 15 year guarantee and can last for more than 80 years.

When the time comes, they can be recycled or disposed of without any detrimental impact on the environment.

JB Leitch Practice Manager, Michelle Leitch, is full of praise for the Heradesign ceilings:

“I feel the ceiling improves the ambience of our offices tenfold. Noise levels are vastly reduced and the neutral colour adds warmth and depth. The overall effect is not that of a suspended ceiling, but something much more permanent.”
