Simmons & Simmons

400SQM, Design and Build

Beijing, 2020


Simmons & Simmons is an international legal practice with over 1,500 people and 22 offices located in major business and financial centers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia. Working with their international team, EPD were able to understand and execute on their new design guidelines set by London. The first S+S China project using an open office standard, there were challenges in adhering to the guidelines and still providing the staff and partners with a sense of privacy. Through local staff engagement sessions and continuous updates to the international teams, we successfully helped the Simmons & Simmons Beijing staff transition to their new working style, delivering a high quality design and build project.
