Building Upgrades: Moveable Wall System
For the office spaces, a moveable wall system was considered. While having a greater initial cost over a traditional drywall system, a moveable wall system reduces long-term costs by being 100% moveable and reusable - extending the life of the wall, eliminating landfill and providing PEO the flexibility to reconfigure office spaces quickly and less expensively.
Intercede conducted a review of seven suppliers of moveable wall systems. The following criteria was used to evaluate each of the seven products:
- Contribution to LEED® certification
- Site preparation for installation
- Construction (types of panels, connection to ceilings, floors, walls)
- Damage during reconfiguration
Of the seven suppliers reviewed, three were short-listed and an RFP was issued. The proposals were reviewed and the supplier that best met PEO’s requirements was Steelcase + POI.
