Style Wins Award for University Installation

Style’s installation at Brunel University has been recognised at the prestigious AIS Contractors Awards.

Winning silver, the judges were impressed by the outstanding quality of the project, which included three different moveable wall systems in the same building.

For the main auditorium, Skyfold was chosen as the best option. This vertically rising moveable wall, housed in the ceiling cavity, lowers effortlessly into place at the push of a button. For the ground floor café bar, Stylefold 120 was chosen; a practical system perfect for canteens, community halls and school classrooms etc.

Yet the showpiece was the semi-automatic curved wall in one of the main halls reaching a height of 5.7 metres – a really stunning feature.

For this, DORMA Variflex was selected offering the University real ‘wow’ factor for students and visitors.

“We’ve now been recognised in the AIS Contractors Awards nine times,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director, “with five gold awards to our credit and four silver.
“To consistently top these awards year on year is a huge testimony to the quality of our people, products and processes and we continue to inwardly invest in the very highest standards across everything we do.”

Style is the exclusive UK agent to DORMA, Skyfold and SWG offering an extensive range of moveable partitioning walls, for every application and room configuration. The firm recently celebrated its 100th UK installation of Skyfold at an event at Telefonica Digital’s offices in London, attended by more than 50 notable architects, contractors and end-user clients.

Having also announced, last year, the first ever UK EPD certification for moveable walls, Style offers the most sustainable partitioning wall solutions in the UK market. The EPD (Environmental Product Declaration) applies to DORMA’s Variflex, Moveo and Varitrans products.

EPD is important is because it is the pinnacle of product sustainability for anyone seeking sustainable solutions for BREEAM, LEED and SKA rating certification.
