Founded in 1981, Dimensional global firms have a long history of applying academic research to practical investing. Today, the firm offers a full range of equity and fixed income strategies designed to target higher expected returns.

Working with architects, Gensler and contractor, ISG, Style was specified to provide a stylish and practical, acoustic moveable wall to divide the boardroom into two separate meeting rooms or enable it to be opened up into one large meeting area.

A DORMA Moveo operable wall system was deemed the best solution. With 55dB acoustics this semi-automatic moveable wall offers exceptional privacy when closed, allowing concurrent meetings to run either side, completely undisturbed. Finished in a chic fabric, and with a dark timber skirting to add a further touch of class, the final solution is as stylish as it is practical.

“As the exclusive UK partner to DORMA’s range of moveable walls, we are able to offer architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients the very best choice of moveable walls from a global, market leading manufacturer,” said Style’s group managing director, Julian Sargent.

“As well as being extremely easy to operate, and with the semi-automatic operation ensuring the acoustic seals are applied perfectly every time the wall is closed, these walls are also highly sustainable.

“A number of years ago, DORMA was the first manufacturer to produce Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) certified moveable walls in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN15804 and continue to lead the way in sustainability.”

An EPD communicates the environmental performance of a product. By having an EPD means architects and contractors can participate in tenders involving sustainable building certification procedures.
