Becker (Sliding Partitions) Ltd are delighted to announce the completion of the Movable Glass Wall at the recently refurbished Vodafone HQ in Newbury, Berkshire.
When CMI Consulting were deliberating on the best practical way to enhance the aesthetic appearance and functional space of the showroom at Vodafone HQ they looked no further than the Becker Monoglass L-35 movable glass system. The remit required an open plan floor space to promote the latest products during the day and the flexibility to securely close the area off when not in use. Without compromising available space the panels slide into a recess when the shop is open. In the closed position, video images are projected onto the glass.
Becker having been established for the past 20 years relished the opportunity to work on such a prestigious project with undoubtedly one of the biggest blue chip companies in the world.
With only four weeks from initial enquiry to completion of the project, Becker’s experienced technical department worked closely with CMI Consulting and Simons Construction to ensure the end product was delivered and installed with minimum disturbance to the client.
The unique layout of the proposed system meant the design before manufacture had to be exactly right. After a site visit and close consultation with both CMI and Simons Construction all companies were confident they would have the system ready in time for the hand over and opening ceremony.
To ensure minimum disruption to the client the installation could only take place out of hours. Using their dedicated contractors to install the screen between the hours of 7pm and 7am the screen was installed over two very long nights.
Speaking after the handover to Vodafone, Peter West of CMI Consulting concluded ‘The clean and efficient service you provided throughout your short time on this project was truly remarkable, the client is delighted with the partition and would also like to express their thanks for providing such a stunning piece of engineering and craftsmanship. I look forward very much to working with you again.’
Becker (Sliding Partitions) Ltd are pleased to announce the completion of the Vodafone project in London, once again working with CMI Consulting and Simons Construction using the Monoplan S 100K Movable Wall System.
