Being able to react flexibly to changes is one of the key challenges for businesses in today’s world. Growth, increasing project orientation and dynamic technical and economic developments bring about changes in team structures, department sizes – and in the use of office spaces.

Modern office buildings enable the interior space to be divided up in a wide range of layouts because of the unsupported fixtures, self-supporting ceilings, and partition walls that can be effectively attached to the facade. However, fixed plasterboard walls often get in the way of truly flexible interior spatial design. Many companies shy away from the expense involved in taking out plasterboard walls, and from the other inconveniences that might result from the conversion work, such as work stoppages and the disturbance to business operations. That means that the existing space structures and familiar processes remain in place, hurting communication and sacrificing the potential of the space.
Modern partition wall systems enable fast, almost dustless conversion to take place virtually overnight. Our years of experience in relocation and furnishing preparation and our cooperation with a highly capable logistics partner mean that we can now demolish, convert and rebuild entire office structures within a handful of days, even for very large buildings.
Partition wall systems are certainly more expensive than plasterboard walls at first. At the same time, they do not need to be decorated or painted ,and do not require regular maintenance aside from being cleaned when the windows are being washed. Not only is conversion a lot faster, it is also more cost-effective. The costs of converting the space when the building’s tenant changes are much lower, and it is easier to visualise how the space could be divided up for several companies.
Partition wall systems make it easy to adapt spaces to changing requirements – but truly flexible furnishing design goes even further than that. Even kitchenettes can be relocated with ease if the right connections are in place.
