Creating Multi functional Space In Universities
In universities, space is usually at a premium. With the multitude of different courses available and various different activities taking place space has to be versatile and able to adapt to activities quickly and efficiently.
Our movable walls and folding partitions have been successfully implemented in several universities and colleges across the UK, providing a cost effective solution to space issues in several communal spaces including:
- Lecture theatres, seminar rooms and workshops – enabling events to be held simultaneously such as exams and meetings.
- Canteens and dining halls and other communal spaces
- Libraries and function rooms – these spaces will benefit from the acoustic ratings of our walls, reducing the impact excess noise from one group might have on the other
- Stages, with the number or different societies and extracurricular activities available at universities, a fabric partition on-stage will enable two groups to practice at once with minimal distractions
Our newest folding wall system was recently introduced to our collection, the new stylish system is easier than ever to operate, perfect for when the layout of the room needs to be changed throughout the day, available in a range of styles with the option of graphic printing for truly unique customisation.
All our systems are manufactured in-house and Building Additions will be your sole point of contact throughout product selection, manufacture, installation and aftercare – meaning no extra expense is required for 3rd party contractors.
