Building Information Modelling, known within the industry as BIM, has recast the way the construction world plans and oversees projects. At Optima, we have embraced this huge technological advancement. Our diverse portfolio of glass partitioning systems data is now readily available within the BIM libraries and for download in IFC and RVT formats via a number of different platforms. This demonstrates our ongoing commitment to modernising and streamlining the construction industry through improved collaboration at the design stage.
A happy, healthy workforce is ultimately a more engaged and productive one, which can lead to increased business performance. There is now a business case for acoustics and wellbeing to be consideredin the workplace, and it’s a trend that is making headlines. It’s a core principal of the new WELL Building Standard, which has been created by US-based consultants Delos and is steadily gaining importance in the design of UK office buildings. Its aim is to ensure that a building will guarantee a healthy environment for the people who work there. How can glass partitions help to create an acoustically comfortable environment which will lead to more content, and ultimately more productive, employees?
Product innovation within the field of acoustic glass partitions is moving at a considerable pace. In such a rapidly changing industry it’s essential to keep up-to-date with any new development, whether it’s a technical advance or a change in regulations.
In the world of glass partitions, how does investing in continuous development and growth benefit employers and employees. Giving your employees the opportunity to expand their knowledge is one of the best things you can do for the company’s future growth.
