Writable dividing walls for global bank’s UK offices

As part of a refurbishment project, Bank of America wanted to better maximise space at their Chester Business Park offices.Style was contracted to work with architect TP Bennett and contractor Amspec, to design a partitioning solution that would allow the meeting rooms to be used more flexibly, as well as encourage collaborative working practices.

Two Dorma Hüppe Variflex, semi-automatic, white laminate operable walls enable the main meeting room to be quickly divided into two separate areas.Boasting an impressive 59dB acoustic integrity, the walls allow concurrent meetings to run entirely undisturbed.Injecting vibrancy and inspiring lively sharing of ideas and information, Style also installed six brightly coloured, moveable glass ‘squiggle’ panels, providing magnetic, writable surfaces for use in dynamic discussions.

Bank of America is one of the world’s largest financial institutions, serving individual consumers, small and middle market businesses and large corporations with a full range of financial and risk management products and services.In the UK they have c.6,500 employees, mostly based in London, with approximately 1,000 staff located at the 175-acre Chester Business Park.

“The coloured squiggle glass panels are a fabulous addition to this stunning meeting space,” said Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the north.

“They can be pulled into position, and clustered together, for notes and ideas during meetings and informal gatherings making them a really practical solution, as well as a stylish and innovative one.

“Furthermore, they bring an element of colour and flair to this beautifully designed meeting space and, when used in conjunction with the two semi-automatic Variflex moveable walls, the room can be used very flexibly, and with first class acoustic integrity, depending on meeting requirements and numbers.”

Housed within black, powder-coated Dorma Varitrans profiles, perfectly matching the black powder coated head-track, these stunning panels can be moved into any position along 30 metres of track.

Style is the UK’s leading moveable wall specialist, and the exclusive UK partner to Dorma Hüppe, Skyfold and SWG, offering manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic moveable wall solutions across multiple market sectors including corporate, hospitality, education, religion, healthcare and local authority.
