Development of demountable wall systems

Development of demountable wall systems

The development of demountable walls has changed over time. The pace has been quite slow due to resistance, but at the moment, it has fully set foot in the global market place. One of the key reasons is the ever-changing dynamics that have pushed both small and large companies to embrace this technology. The fluctuating level of staff and creating workgroups to meet opportunities has even pushed further the evolution; hence business thrives as they embrace the technology.

Below is a brief history and the role that demountable walls play in the evolution of contemporary office spaces.

  • Pioneers 

More than 40 years ago, the introduction of demountable wall systems faced a great challenge. Most people perceived them as a futuristic idea of flying cars with the lack of a real application aspect in the real world. Despite the struggle for acceptance large corporate organizations embraced them and later in time the government also took a chance on them after realizing their potential and results from the other organizations

  • The broader market 

Back in time, there was no need to configure office space because of the static nature of the business, unlike present times. The construction of demountable walls was expensive compared to building dry walls, the technology required to design and install such walls than was also complicated. These two factors deterred small and mid-sized organizations from embracing this technology in the quest to save on expenditure.

  • The winds of change 

With time much, the static environment became dynamic, and the need for embracing demountable walls was felt by many companies; otherwise, they faced extinction — some of the few reasons included, stiff global competition unlike earlier where there was just local competition. Construction costs associated with dry walls increased to the extent that the former was now cheap. The fact that they became affordable is attributed to the upgrades of successive generations. Finally is; the aspect that they were well equipped to change with technology.

  • Into the future

The future of business and technology is evolving at the same pace, and for business to remain competitive, it is ideal for them to embrace modern technology like the case of demountable walls. This gives companies unlimited flexibility, the ability to cut utility, maintenance costs, and at the same time, the cost associated with reconfiguration. Finally, they allow for maximum productivity in cases of tech-savvy personnel.

Failure to embrace technology (demountable walls) in this dynamic business environment will lead to an inability to compete favorably, and chances of extinction are high when that is the case. All that said, embracing technology is a sure thing to do for any business to thrive.
