Cornerstone successfully negotiated a fee-based contract with Ballard Spahr to provide both preconstruction and construction services for Ballard Spahr’s new Atlanta office. Throughout the early stages of the project, Cornerstone worked closely with both Ballard Spahr and design firm ASD | Sky through several rounds of Design Development pricing to assist in the finalized overall design and final construction budget. Throughout the project Cornerstone also coordinated all low voltage, security, and AV infrastructure scopes with Ballard Spahr’s Philadelphia based IT team.
Ballard Spahr, a nationally recognized law firm desired a dramatic change from that of their previous traditional law offices. This project consisted of large meetings spaces with fully engineered office storefront systems throughout. Unlike that of traditional law firms, Ballard Spahr sought to provide a transparent clean look throughout that still maintained privacy yet took advantage of the dramatic views of the midtown skyline.
Notable project features include a new age Arktura wall and ceiling system at the reception and elevator lobby. Open ceiling concepts in the new lounge, fully engineered storefronts for all attorney offices and sleek floating shelves in the newly designed law library. The project also included a full renovation of both the core restrooms and a complete renovation of the new mail and file room on the 9th floor.
