Client: Bristol Language Centre
Jumbo Stud Partitioning
The client was expanding to a new floor in the same building and was in need of jumbo stud partitioning as well as standard stud partitioning for seven new classrooms. The client decided against a suspended ceiling, instead having the rooms reach up to the apex of the roof at 4.5m. We felt that this would increase the noise levels in the room but the benefit would be a much more open environment.
We had to work out the materials in order to cost the work, so the first job is always to measure and draw it.
The walls were constructed from stud and board with jumbo stud to achieve a strong structure to that height. The walls were taped and jointed and painted in an off white colour so that each room was kept light and airy. The front doors to the training rooms were constructed from some conventional demountable partitioning system materials, as well as some demountable partitioning skirting sections to run around the walls.
As explained in the previous paragraphs this project used jumbo stud partitioning due to the height requirements of the wall, most walls in offices use demountable partition for speed of construction as well as other uses.
Why Demountable Partitioning?
- Demountable partitioning is tax efficient in that they are seen as movable items and so can be treated differently in writing down allowances in the accounts.
- We can also lease Demountable Partitioning as they are movable, this spreads the costs of having the work done as Demountable Partitions always cost more than customers think.
- Leasing of demountable partitioning is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
- Most landlords insist on demountable partitions being used for offices as it is much easier to take them out should the tenant renting the space leave for any reason. The benefit is that is saves making a huge amount of mess and destruction that would be need with a conventional stud and plasterboard constructed wall.
