Style wins 9th Gold Award

Market-leading, moveable wall specialist, Style, has scooped the top accolade in the FIS Contractors awards for the ninth time.

Richard Pearce, operations director, collected the Gold Contractors award for the operable walls category at the Dorchester Hotel in London, at a ceremony attended by 455 FIS members and their guests.

Style won the coveted prize for its installation of a Skyfold moveable wall system at the Francis Crick Institute in Kings Cross.

Skyfold is a fully automatic, acoustic operable wall housed discreetly in the ceiling cavity, descending effortlessly into place at the push of a button.

A unique feature is its ability to sub-divide stepped auditoriums and, due to the sheer size of the room at Francis Crick, Style’s team installed 3 Skyfolds to create one wall with incredible attention to detail.

With flawless precision, the lines of the veneer match perfectly, not only across the 3 Skyfolds but the surrounding fixed walls too. And with privacy essential when running concurrent events either side of the closed wall, Style delivered phenomenal 49dB acoustics on site.

“A huge thank you goes to everyone who worked on this project,” said Julian Sargent, Style’s group managing director.

“This is without doubt one of the most impressive installations we have ever completed, and everyone who worked so hard on it, from our back-office staff to those on site, all deserve to share this FIS award which we are proud to receive yet again.”
