Newcastle fit out and new build boom sees surge in moveable walls


Described as a North Eastern powerhouse, Newcastle is booming.

The city’s population is projected to reach over 310,000 by 2030, and a North of Tyne devolution deal will bring an extra £600 million of investment to the region over the next 30 years.

According to Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the North, this boom in Newcastle is having a significant impact on the demand for moveable walls.

“As new offices are built, and older premises refurbished, most businesses and developers see flexible space as a key requirement,” said Andy.

“As a result, we have never witnessed such high levels of demand for our moveable, folding and partitioning walls, with installations in Newcastle completely outstripping demand across other major cities.

“Its great news for the North East, and the very high demand for adaptable space reflects how the workplace is changing – with companies seeking to offer a working environment that is collaborative, adaptable and meets the new requirements of our post-Covid lives, where hybrid working is seen by many to be the new norm.”

“For architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients seeking support and advice with developing flexible space, we would advise they talk to us as early as possible.

“Far from simply being a moveable wall installation specialist, we offer a complete design and consultation service too and can give very clear assistance regarding which moveable wall solutions will work best, how the acoustic integrity can be maximised, the different parking options and whether a fully automatic, semi-automatic or manual solution would suit the room, client and budget best.”
