As good as the company you keep if you work with the big names in architecture and can follow through on their custom design to the letter, then your own reputation in the industry is assured.

Here, glass specialist Glassforce was asked by Warren and Mahoney (W&M) to deliver on their design for internal partitioning something different for the fit-out of their own expansive new premises.

W&M principal Jonathan Coote explains why the collaboration between architect and Glassforce worked so well: "It was a real pleasure to work with David Clephane he's one of those rare breeds that knows his area of expertise inside and out. We were able to easily develop the product with him to get a stunning result.

These office partition systems were created by Glassforce from the concept and design by Jonathan Coote, principal at architects Warren and Mahoney.

"We approached Glassforce on recommendation from a contact who had won a national award with David's team. Through a series of detailed sketches and elevations that W&M had prepared, we spent the best part of four months developing, engineering and cost managing these together."

As part of this, Jonathan and David put their heads together to solve tolerance issues and achieve a high quality roller and braking system. Glassforce's ability to procure high quality stainless moving gear, sourced offshore, played a key part.

An important part of the design was to secure the large format glass onto and over the sub frame for a full-bleed' effect, with no mechanical fixings.

"We are very happy with the results the system is robust, beautiful and functional," W&M's principal says. "In fact, we get a lot of comments about how lovely our glazed partition system and its sliding and pivoting panels are."
