Miles Smith

Client Background

Established in 1925, the Miles Smith Group has particular experience in arranging custom cover for high risk industries, commercial motor, and the growing market in recycle, reuse and waste management.

They have established affinity partnerships with a dozen trade bodies, with major links to the UK’s largest Insurance companies, as well as international insurers and re-insurers.

Points of note

Miles Smith have relocated their offices from Birchin Court, 20 Birchin Lane, London EC3 to brand new offices at One America Square. The new offices will not only reflect the creative and aspiration values of their current brand but will look to the future to where their business is heading.

Miles Smith moved into 12,500 sq ft of office space on the 6th floor; the design of the ‘front of house area’ was characterised by strong, clean lines.

The overall concept for the design is ‘Light & Transparency’, with a modern, clean look. We have used glass as much as possible to allow visitors and staff alike to be able to walk into the space and have a view through to the back of the space and to get the light from the central core and side windows. Visitors to the space will be greeted with a light, bright space, as opposed to an internal area devoid of natural light.
