What was the brief?
The customer, H&MV Engineering, were in need of an additional meeting room within their busy office space. Not only did the new meeting room need to offer a modern aesthetic, but it also needed to accommodate regular private and confidential conversations among the workforce. Because of this, transparency and sound control were two key elements to consider as part of the design and build for this partitioning system.
What did we propose?
We understood the importance of finding a contemporary workspace solution and suggested a glazed partitioning system to create a sleek, modern look that maximised the available light.
In support of the customers privacy requirements, we designed a double-glazed acoustic partition with a framed door. Whilst this would be an effective way to incorporate sound attenuation into the partition design, we knew we could do more! That’s why we suggested soundproofing the ceiling above the meeting room to reduce sound transfer by combining acoustic insulation with sound isolation clips and soundproof panels. This would drastically minimise distractions of outside noise from the main office, whilst keeping the conversations taking place from inside the meeting room private.
Lastly, in aid of visual privacy (and aesthetics!) we recommended adding a manifestation to the glazed partition. This is a frosted treatment added to the glass that prevents others from looking in (and vice versa). Not only that, but we also suggested adding the customers company logo to the glass partition too, echoing company branding.
