Client: IT Focus
IT Focus had just moved into new office space in Bradford Upon Avon and needed some office partitioning carried out for a few areas. Initial consultation was free, and Cre8tive produced some drawings and costs for different areas in the office space. The partition system needed to be demountable.
In looking at the areas in more detail the small room to partition off the server would end up being impractical as the server would likely overheat without air conditioning, further adding to cost. The end requirement was to just focus on building a glass office partition screen to separate the meeting room from the main office as noise was going to be a problem.
The usual debate over price versus performance between a 50mm wide demountable system and a 75mm demountable system as office partitions, presented the normal dilemma. Do you spend the money for a bit better sound performance or just go for price. In the end IT Focus decided on a 75mm wide system but wanted the screen fitted to the underside of the beam running across the office. This presented some construction problems when we came to build it as the floor was not level. The glass had to be cut (raked) at an angle as the door and drooframe have to be plumbed completely square, and everything comes off the doorframe. In the end a couple of the windows had to be made not quite squire to get it all to fit.

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.
