Style Moveable Partition Specialists – for its contract at Gensler’s London HQ

Two Skyfold vertically rising operable walls were installed within Gensler and Associates’ international new headquarters.

Skyfold was specified by Gensler to maximise the floor space within its meeting rooms by stacking the system within the ceiling void. This provides ease of operation by a touch of a button. The operable walls were finished using Kvadrat wall coverings to match the surrounding walls and provide a magnetic finish.

Gensler also received an award.

Dividers Modernfold – for its installation at St Thomas’ and St Luke’s Church, Birmingham

Dividers Modernfold installed two operable walls type 110 - 50dB rated at St Thomas’ and St Luke’s Church in Birmingham.

Because of the complexity of the required veneer finish, Dividers worked closely with supplier Thornell Veneers, architect Byrom Clarke Roberts, and also contractor Contech Construction, to ensure a high-quality finish was achieved, which was in keeping with the rest of the project.
