If you need to partition your office, it’s best to invest in the services of a professional who knows how to get the job done efficiently, safely, and cost-effectively.
Here are just a few reasons you need to enlist the services of a partitions expert for your upcoming renovation project.
What does a partitions specialist do?
A partitions specialist job is to create non-load bearing walls – normally within commercial buildings. These walls are used to optimise the layout of a given space by making it private, quieter, or even fire safe.
The specialist will be conversant with different types of solid partitions, although most tend to be of brick construction. Some are aluminium- or timber-framed and clad using plaster, timber, or metal.
Glazed partitions are not uncommon, in which case the partitions expert will add toughened glass, doors, windows, and bulkheads where needed to improve the aesthetic appeal of the construction.
The specialist contracted to complete the work may also look to reuse certain components of an existing wall to save time and expense – although this will depend on the type of building.
Why do I need to hire a partitions specialist for an office renovation?
Do you have the in-house experience, or resources to complete your planned commercial fit out on time and within budget? Even if you employ maintenance personnel to carry out work on site, they’re unlikely to have an in-depth knowledge of partitioning.
A specialist will also need to understand:
1. Demountable partitions – lightweight constructions used in situations where acoustic and fire requirements don’t apply
2. Metal stud partitions – a system that features layers of plasterboard affixed to its exterior
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The specialist hired to complete the work will need to take into consideration weight, the cost of materials, durability, and healthy and safety requirements.
As you can see, it’s cheaper, safer, and more convenient to hire a company with the experience and expertise to complete the work for you.
