Partitioning specialist Style, recently installed a comprehensive solution for another new etc.venues event facility in Piccadilly, Manchester. This is the eighth time Style has worked with etc.venues and Synergy architects, having previously developed partitioning wall systems for seven prestigious room hire amenities in central London.
On this occasion, Style was contracted to deliver flexibility to a large open area, allowing hire opportunities to be fully capitalised by dividing the space into numerous rooms of different sizes, exactly meeting the changing needs of clients. A total of nine DORMA Variflex moveable walls were installed, providing exceptional acoustic privacy of 55dB between the divided areas.
Hosting a phenomenal 662,000 delegates in 2016 and with annual sales over £42m, etc.venues continues to grow. The Manchester Piccadilly facility is situated across the glass-clad 8th floor of 11 Portland Street, boasting unique views over the City. Featuring etc.venue’s bold, signature use of colour, contemporary fittings and adaptable LED lighting, clients have access to 15 rooms of various sizes including a theatre-style suite for up to 300 delegates.
Style recommended DORMA Variflex for Manchester as it is a highly adaptable system that can be finished in a wide variety of designs to reflect the etc.venues individual look. The comprehensive combination of nine DORMA Variflex moveable walls allows room configuration to be quickly and easily changed, creating small meeting hubs as necessary, or opening out the space as required.
Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the north, said:"The panels feature a stunning wood effect laminate". "Spectacular, site-applied graphics of iconic Manchester landmarks complete the design, making for truly eye-catching partitioning walls.”
