It is a common axiom that blue-chip companies are attracted to other successful companies when doing business. Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice PLLC, a top law firm in the Southeast United States that attracts some of the most esteemed partners in its field, fits the bill as a blue-chip firm. R-PCI Construction, with its stellar record of performance to a targeted group of select clients, fits the bill as a successful company. That these two firms should collaborate proves that axiom is correct.
Womble Carlyle’s move into the Downtown Baltimore market confirms its status as a top blue-chip law firm. The fact that R-PCI Construction was awarded the build-out of the corporate interior for Womble Carlyle provides additional confirmation of what many other blue chip clients know and what Inc. 500 recognized: that R-PCI Construction is one of the fastest growing companies in the US.
Womble Carlyle has a primary goal, like other organizations that enter a new market, to make a splash. This can be accomplished in several ways, for example, by collaborating with a mover and shaker in the region or by setting up an office at a premier address in the new market. As opposed to choosing between these two options, Womble Carlyle did both. They approached Governor Erhlich to become the founder of its Baltimore office. At that time, Womble Carlyle also decided to set up their new office in the “Class A” trophy building adjacent to Camden Yards at 250 W. Pratt Street.
As with most high visibility projects, the build-out was put on an extremely fast track and the schedule had no room for slippage due to current leased space considerations. The fast track schedule did not influence the firm to go sparse on its finishes. Marble tile, rich woodwork and internal glass partitions used throughout the 17,000 square foot space frame the awe-inspiring views of the Inner Harbor and Camden Yards below.
The combined coloration of Womble Carlyle and R-PCI Construction accomplished much by way of furthering each firm’s success. The most prominent example is A SPLASH!
