Office Partitions was given this project in Old Belgard Road, Tallaght, and was very pleased to have won the work; it is exactly the type of assignment at which we excel.
To begin with, we were working with experts. The client had used PFR Architectural Services to design the layout, and Office Partitions then worked alongside the building company, mechanical and electrical engineers, flooring contractors and others in order to achieve the outcome the client required. Weekly meetings with everybody concerned in the project helped to keep us all on track.
Arrow Property Services had specified light and airy modern office space.
Slightly worryingly, we had been given only nine weeks in which to complete this demanding task, and the budget was also fairly tight.
The two stories on which the work was to be carried out had full-height windows, and Arrow Property Services specified that Office Partitions was to retain the light that this provided. The excellent Saint Gobain Click single glazed frameless partitions met this specification, as did the framed glass door sets, and they did so within the budget we had been set. Both the partitions and the doors achieve a DB rating of 37, and so we not only achieved the light feel to the entire office, but we also reached the important noise reduction level that was required.
Because the glass cubicle partitions are frameless, we avoided the loss of light that is an almost inevitable consequence of using more traditional types of partition.
Where light was not of paramount importance, Office Partitions used demountable solid partitioning and chose Interfinish Omega, which has a DB rating of 47. The glass cubicle partitions were ideal for this project.
Thirty serviced light, quiet and airy offices over the two floors, on time and within budget.
Office Partitions had also been given the task of refurbishing the restrooms and WCs, and for this, we used our Alsanit Aquari range. Not only are they excellent value for money, but they are also hard-wearing; the vanity units are made in 12mm solid grade laminate.
And finally, we supplied the OWA tegular suspended ceilings, which are both attractive and practical.
We had achieved a bright, modern and light set of offices, clean and fresh restrooms, and attractive ceilings. We did it on time and within the budget.
Arrow Property Services has now opened the business in the new offices and is thriving in the Serviced Office market. We wish them every success and are pleased to have played our part in this new venture.
