A moveable wall or partition system can be a valuable addition to any event space, allowing the room to be adapted for different occasions and make maximum use of what space is available. The flexibility of being able to divide a room into two separate areas enables events to be run simultaneously, saving time and money.
If you’re considering a partition system for your event space, here are a few factors you should take into consideration before choosing which system is best suited to your venue.
Creating the right impression when it comes to your business premises is very important. What better way to stay in the minds of your potential clients and visitors than to wow them with imaginative, unique and eye-catching imagery.

We have utilised these graphics in a range of different venues from nurseries to high profile football clubs. Our tailored service allows you to create custom walls that don’t just divide space, but add value to it.
Pupils and teachers alike are in the final stretch of revision as exams, whether GCSE’s, A Levels, or University papers, are set to begin in late May. Whilst students focus on their chosen subjects in a bid to ace their exams, teachers adopt longer hours to provide solid support. But we mustn’t forget the pressure that our nation’s exam and data managers face too.
In fact, not only must staff ensure that the students are ready for the impending assessments but there are a number of key processes in the lead up to exam season to consider too. The team at Building Additions can help make the examination period that much easier. Find out more below:

Although it may seem that Christmas was only last week, we are approaching the end of January already. And that means that half term is nearly upon us. A welcome break for teachers and students alike it is often the case that parents’ frantically attempt to fill their days with activities and outings.
As a result of current architectural fashion many schools, both primary and secondary, have opted to introduce open plan classrooms and large teaching areas. And just as open plan offices have been criticised for their lack of privacy and their employee’s decreased ability to work productively, research suggests that there is an urgent need to revaluate these designs in our educational facilities.
A great deal of research has been conducted in relation to children, teachers, and school environments whether concerning teaching styles, teaching methods, the bare wall theory or as we’ll discuss here; open plan learning.
You may have noticed the increased prices in renting a property and the difficulty of obtaining a mortgage for first time buyers. And since getting on the property ladder is becoming an increasingly difficult task there is a rising level of “inter-generational” living.
What is “inter-generational” living we hear you say? It is simply the case whereby parents, children and grandchildren are living under one roof; a trend which continues to rise as youngsters can’t afford moving out costs.
Therefore architects across the globe are getting creative and finding a solution to the problem in the form of moveable walls and adaptable interiors.
Despite the decline of privacy and rise in employee camaraderie the open plan office trend continues to take companies across the world by storm. For breaking office barriers and promoting open space working environments we can thank the likes of Google and Apple who have sang praises regarding significant improvements in their employee’s working day.
To some extent we can see why companies have opted for a change in the way their employees are able to work. Open plan environments tear down hierarches where the big bosses, who had once sought after private corner offices with the best views, mingle amongst the heart of the business; their employees.
Not only can a company benefit from maximising its space but it can simultaneously minimise costs. Employers and designers across all areas of business had hoped to revitalise a collaborative culture encouraging communication and spontaneous micro meetings amongst staff.
Here at Building additions we do business with schools and nurseries on a day to day basis. We are forever fitting educational facilities with folding partitions and operable wall systems; whether they require additional space or sound proofing with acoustic solutions.
