In April 2013, Avanta UK successfully tendered to supply and build office partitioning, a suspended ceiling, lighting, air conditioning, floor coverings and furniture to form an office suite within a production area.
The partitioning system put forward was Komfire 75 which is a 50mm steel stud and 2x 12.5mm plasterboard construction surrounded by an aluminium framework . The system test ratings for fire and sound are 30 minutes and 43 dB (Rw) respectively.
Additional protection and sound proofing was provided by bonding plasisol faced steel sheet to the plasterboard on the exterior side.  All partitions were finished 100mm PVC skirting.


The office suite built is 21.5m in length x 9m wide x 2.7m high.  The suite consisted: -
4x Managers Offices - with additional meeting table, desk chairs and storage
1x Main Production Office subdivided into 3 with 1500mm high 600 series screens to accommodate 4 people per office
1x Meeting Area divided by fabric folding partition with 24dB sound rating to be used as required
1x Utility Area

The solid partitions were decorated in the Tektura matt range of vinyl wall coverings and the 9 single doors are oak veneered with vision panels.
Within the office structure there are 30 double glazed modules with 20 having integral blinds.

The suspended ceiling contained 600mm square edge tiles with 100mm insulation under the facia.  Within the grid there are 52 600mm CAT2 flourescent lights.
