In 2020 COPFS commissioned MLA to prepare design proposals for the redevelopment of their existing offices in Kilmarnock to accommodate additional staff and the changing working patterns following the Covid 19 Pandemic.

The project involved the fit out of two floors of existing Office Suites and space planning for 70 staff.

The Estates Team requested that the new design became the model for Future Ways of Working (FWOW), including the flexibility to work from home or a different office, and not always the Kilmarnock Office. This included an environment that is welcoming for every and any COPFS member of staff and also every visitor, including our Criminal Justice partners and the public.

MLA developed a modern open-plan design where work is completed in a variety of appropriately designed, shared settings and not tethered to specific workstations or location within the building. Flexibility within design that allows for certain areas to be used for different purposes e.g. training, team-briefings, collaboration etc.
