A new conference venue and a refurbished dining facility at Aston University benefit from a combination of DORMA moveable walls, designed and installed by partitioning experts Style. Working with Robothams architects and Speller Metcalfe contactors, Style recommended installing DORMA Varitrans and Moveo partitioning walls to divide an extended restaurant within the world-renowned, Aston Business School.
explains Mike Fine, Styles director for the Midlands, said "Varitrans was the ideal moveable wall system for the restaurant because it can be adapted to virtually any kind of floor plan". The new, 250-delegate conference venue includes eight suites that can be used for workshops, individual meetings or as break-out rooms. Delivering exceptional flexibility to the space Style installed six DORMA Variflex moveable walls finished in high-pressure laminate with sections of magnetic white marker.
The acoustic integrity of the partitioning walls is rated as 60dB, ensuring events can run concurrently without interference. With an eye to the long term, Variflex also has the added advantage that the panels are separate to the frame, allowing low-cost replacement if a change to the interior décor was required.
