Knobbe Martens’ Reimagined Space Blends Old with New

General contractor Pacific Building Group recently completed a full office remodel for law firm Knobbe Martens. Located at 3579 Valley Centre Dr. in Del Mar Heights, the reimagined office space spans nearly 49,000 square feet across three floors.

The nearly $3.5 million tenant-improvement project marks the seventh law office remodel Pacific Building Group completed in San Diego county in the past three years. Knobbe Martens desired an office space that would blend some of the existing office’s architectural features with updated features.

“To achieve the desired outcome, we had to complete select demolition and host regular on-site meetings with all key vendors to ensure a highly coordinated effort,” said Butch Miller, senior superintendent at Pacific Building Group. “The result is a more functional and beautiful office space with a large conference center and patio, which blends the original character of the building with exciting new elements.”

Pacific Building Group started the project with select demolition work on the second and third floors, and completely demolished the first floor and patio. The construction team then refreshed the firm’s offices, reception area, conference rooms and breakrooms, and completely built out the first floor and patio. Part of the build-out included a large conference center and catering kitchen on the first floor.
