75mm Wide Demountable Partitioning

Client: Call Options Chippenham
Value: £8.9k

This Demountable Partitioning project in Chippenham was very straightforward. We had to match the partitions elsewhere in the office that we built previously and match the doors. The customer wanted as much glass as possible in the offices but also wanted privacy, as well as some solid elements to fit cupboards against. The two offices needed a good sound insulating walls between the offices.

Construction Photographs

It is possible to have quite a few different configurations to the partitions in terms of solid walls, glass walls and door modules. The glazing can be single or double glazed and in this case double glazed was chosen as you get better sound insulation, and you can have integral blinds inside the glass which can be turned via a control knob to open and close, so letting in light through into the rest of the office or having a bit of privacy inside the office. We use a proprietary system manufactured by Komfort, who are one of the largest manufacturers of aluminium demountable partitions systems in the UK.

The glass height and width you can also vary, in this case we have tried to maximize the glass height, and have added a side window of glass for the smaller office as well.

Why Demountable Partitioning?

  1. They look much better than conventional stud and plasterboard partitions. Glass can be introduced greatly improving the way light gets into an office space.
  2. Using demountable partitioning is tax efficient in that they are seen as movable items. They can be treated differently in writing down allowances in accounts. Please click this link for more information.
  3. 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.
  4. Leasing of demountable partitioning is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
  5. 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.

New Corner Office – Demountable Partitioning

Client: Mango Solutions
Value: £2.4k

Demountable Partitioning

Further on from the previous two office that we built for Mango solutions, we created a new corner office for the MD, a storage cupboard and meeting room. The new partitioning was to be joined to some existing demountable partitioning that we had previously built for the customer.

We needed to take down the corner of the existing meeting room to build the new offices. Each of the two new rooms have a double glazed window with integral blinds. The beauty of demountable partitioning is just that, the frames are demountable and you can re-use the uprights frames and plasterboard.

Powder coated grey aluminium metalwork was used to match the existing, and insulation inside the cavity wall was used to help reduce the sound travelling between the rooms. The demountable partition is available in different widths, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm and choice depends very much on what performance you want to achieve with the system. The narrow systems we can make look good, but do not perform as well as the wider systems which we installed for Mango. If you are unsure about anything or need more information please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Why Demountable Partitioning?

  1. 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.
  2. We can also lease Demountable Partitioning systems as they are movable, this spreads the costs of having the work done as demountable partitioning materials always cost more than customers think.
  3. Leasing of demountable partitions is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
  4. Most landlords insist on demountable partitioning 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.

Complete Office Design and Refurbishment

Client: Thales Optronics
Value: £55k

Cre8tive Interiors were ask to look at the complete office design and refurbishment for Thales Optronics in Taunton, to convert an existing factory area into a new reception area. Initial work required the removal of a metal skinned demountable system, ceilings and lighting, along with stripping out and replacing the entrance doors with new glass doors.

The lighting chosen was LG3 direct / indirect fittings which is the recommend lighting systems for modern offices. The partitions included silicon jointed glass called Komfort Polar, joining into Komfort Kameo 75mm system which offers a soft radius profile and joins neatly with the Polar silicon jointed system. The doors are disable access width to conform to the DDA regulations.

Existing Space

Thales did not use this building and wanted to create more of a main reception for the site. The building inside was very factory looking, in that it had metal partitions. Fine for a laboratory environment, not very nice for offices. The lighting was also pretty bad with old lino, the whole area needed replacing.

Design and Refurbishment Work

Often with these projects the hard part is knowing where to start. The customer knows it is not right and may have seen other areas that they like. Translating that into a cost can be quite difficult, so what we do at Cre8tive is to listen and then try and interpret what the customer wants. We go through certain steps and doing the drawing work is one of them.

Office Fit Out British Nuclear Group

Client: British Nuclear Group
Value: £99k

Cre8tive were contacted by an Office Furniture company as they were not able to deal with the office fit out side of the project for British Nuclear Group. The customer had already employed an architect to specify what was required and so it was really a case of demonstrating that we knew what we were doing and that could cost the project to meet the clients budget. This project took place on the ground floor of Mallard Court.

The project was designed by Oxford Architects who specified the partition system.

The project was a 6 week duration project which had to run under the Construction Design and Management regulations. Cre8tive Interiors acted as Principle Contractor on the project. The office fit out  for British Nuclear Group consisted of Komfort Double Glazed Polar Demountable Partition System, as well as single glazed Polar screens and Komfort Komfire 100 partitions. The project also included supplying and fitting of a kitchen from Howdens, new carpets, fitting of fire barriers in the ceiling and floor voids, and complete decoration of the workspace.

Initial design and drawing work

Construction Photographs

Working for the British Nuclear Group had it’s challenges. As you would expect every aspect of the work was scrutinized, we also had to have a permanent person on site all of the time which sometimes on projects like this we do not always need to have fitters doing work whilst other work is being done by others. BNG contracted their own duct work people, so they had to carry out some works when we had to be off site.

Why Demountable Partitioning?

This particular project had what we call demountable partitioning in it. Landlords insist on this type as it can be easily relocated without doing much damage to the building.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Leasing of demountable partitioning is very tax efficient and Cre8tive can provide illustrations, please contact us for further information.
  4. 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.

Need an Office Fitting out?

This particular project was driven by BNG with a design carried out by Oxford Architects. We were the contractor who completed the work. If you need any design work doing we can do this, as well as being the principle contractor for the work.

Storage Wall and Demountable Partitions

Client: Cole Easdon Consultants Swindon
Value: £10k

Storage wall with demountable partitions

Cole Easdon approached us with a couple of requirements for their new office in Swindon. The first was to construct a couple of office but they also had a major problem with storage. We realised that we could utilise the full height of the ceiling and use a product called storage wall, which is a full height cupboard constructed and fitted to the underside of the suspended ceiling which acts like a partition. We then built some demountable partitions off the storage wall to solve the problem.
