Office Design

At GDL Interiors Limited we consider good office interior design and functionality to be crucial to the maintenance of employee morale, integral to their productivity and ultimately, key to a company’s success.
An employee may typically spend up to 8 hours a day, working within the confines of an office or other working environment. It is therefore important that these workplaces are as comfortable and inspiring as possible. The office or workplace should also exude an air of professionalism, making any visitor or client feel welcome and suitably accommodated.

GDL Interiors will liaise with you and carefully choose the correct theme for your type of business. We will obtain an overview of your office design plans and work within them, to create your desired office or workplace. Whether you are working from a blank canvas or looking to modify an existing arrangement, we will apply our many years of design experience to creating a motivating, productive arena within which your staff can work to their optimum capacity and your visiting clients will feel inspired and confident.

Space Planning

At GDL Interiors we know the importance of creating good first impressions. Liaising closely with you, we will create your ideal working environment using our office space planning and design service. This service is tuned to maximising the space available to you and to ensuring that the space is utilised, in the most cost effective and productive manner. Taking into account the spatial requirements of the day-to-day running of your business, the comfort of your employees, visitors and clients, our aim is to create a working space that is as closely aligned to your business needs as possible.

Office Partitioning

Office partitioning is an extremely cost effective and stylish way of creating useful, separate working environs within a larger, open plan office space. It gives you the ability to create entirely separate rooms-within-rooms for use as either private offices or business meeting rooms. Partitioning can also be used to segregate or screen off certain areas of your workplace, should you wish to keep them from public view. These could include production, canteen or breakout areas for staff at rest.

At GDL Interiors, we design, manufacture and install the full range of office partitioning solutions: solid partitions, fire rated partitions, glazed partitions, demountable partitions, sound-proof partitions, storage wall partitions and operable partitioning walls.

Glass Manifestation

Glass is increasingly being used as a partitioning medium within the modern office and there are a number of quite compelling factors, contributing to its popularity. Using glass maximises the availability of natural light, which makes the office space more pleasant to work in and may help to reduce electricity bills. Also glass partitioning helps provide the necessary privacy of separate offices without increasing isolation.

When using glass however, attention must be paid to personal safety. Manifestation applied to the glass in the form of film will immediately and importantly address any health and safety concerns, making it obvious that there is a glass partition in place and therefore avoiding any potential accident risk.
Manifestation can be designed to compliment and enhance corporate identity, giving partitions a decorative and aesthetic as well as practical purpose. Dusted, frosted, patterned and coloured films are easily applied and removed in situ, making it simple to replace or update designs, make logo changes or rebrand.

Supplying and Installing Washroom Facilities

Fitting Suspended Ceilings

There are many advantages to installing a suspended ceiling. A suspended ceiling will reduce the height of your office, saving on fuel bills, as there’s less room to heat. It will also serve to hide any unsightly pipes or ductwork whilst at the same time, allowing for easy access should you need to carry out any maintenance. Lowered ceilings result in less sound pollution by reducing or eradicating echo and they will also increase light, reducing complaints of eyestrain and the associated headaches from computer or close eye workers.

A suspended ceiling will improve the overall aesthetic of the workspace, creating a very pleasant and comfortable environment for employees to work in. It will also ensure that clients and visitors form an excellent impression of your company by building on your “green” credentials.
