Engel & Volkers

Baton Rouge, LA

This was a suite located at the Mall of Louisiana that had been empty for about one year. Its location next to the Apple Store made it a great prospect for a business that was wanting to impress. We were contracted to complete this remodel project that consisted of a full renovation to the interior and storefront. We rebuilt interior walls and made a glass wall conference room that could offer privacy in conversation and yet an open feel in a small space. We added all new electrical and lighting and replaced all flooring, repainted the interior, installed new cabinetry and a new storefront look that had a clean, crisp and professional look.

Spencer's Contracting partnered with Engel & Volker Baton Rouge to build out their agent/ client meeting studio at the Outdoor Shopping Boulevard of the Mall of Louisiana. The suite is 1250 sq. ft. of retail space. We arranged the room to include a front reception and greeting area, a private glass-enclosed conference room, multiple workstations, an executive office, and a small breakroom at the back of the building. We also re-invigorated the storefront approach with faux columns, new glass entry doors, new awnings, and new paint. The updated lighting also added to the wow factor of this high-finish renovation. At the conclusion of construction, the client was quick to move in and open for business.
