Office Demountable Partition.
This customer contacted us with a demand for a quick turnaround for an office demountable partition. The customer had pretty much decided on the layout he wanted but there was some discussions about sound performance between rooms. We suggested a combination of 75 demountable partitions and 50mm wide demountable partitions. The 50mm wide demountable partitions offer the right balance between cost and performance, we fitted the 75mm wide walls between the meeting room and the office to improve the sound performance in that position.
We recommended that the glass was fitted to door head height for looks, but the customer wanted the glass to go right up to the ceiling to maximize the light in the store room and main meeting room, the customer is always right so we obliged. The demountable partition system is available in a wide variety of colours, the stock colours are white and grey, so for speed we agreed on white frames. The customer also wanted a quick turn around within a week which we were able to do in this case.
The main building is rented, and so a requirement from landlords is that the partitioning needs to be demountable. The condition of the existing space was pretty good, with cabling and lighting already in place. We did have to re- cable all of the Cat5 data and voice sockets to the comms cabinet position, as well as re-position power sockets in the perimeter trunking so that there appeared in the correct places. All we had to do was to fit some partitioning as well as some storage wall for the main meeting room. We also had to build a small kitchen.
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.
