General

Walls to Workstations is a company that provides commercial interior solutions to direct clients, main contractors, architects and designers within the Irish fit-out market. We have partnered with leading Irish and global brands to provide interior solutions in glazing, furniture, contract flooring, and acoustics, supporting smart, evolving, and human-centred workspaces.

A subcontractor (or sub-contractor) is a company or person a main contractor hires to perform a specific task as part of an overall project and pays for services provided to the project.

 

While subcontracting often occurs in building works and civil engineering, the range of opportunities for subcontractors is much more comprehensive. One hires subcontractors either to reduce costs or to mitigate project risks. The main contractor hopes to receive the same or better service than they could have provided, at a lower overall risk.

A glazed partition is a form of area divider made from panes of glass. These can either be single-glazed or double-glazed partitions. Glazed partition walls are widely used in commercial and residential projects as they are made from high-quality materials.

Optima's range of Adaptable Modular Systems includes a versatile freestanding meeting room (Adaptable Meeting Room) and a solid wall system (AW100) consisting of parts from the standard Optima partitioning system.

W2W and Optima’s latest office solution, the Adaptable Meeting Room (AMR), is a versatile freestanding meeting room designed to fit into any space. It brings circular economy design to the forefront of commercial interior solutions. This provides an adaptable workspace that provides adaptability, flexibility, and the capacity to change with and for an organisation.

The AMR enables access to many impressive features, from high acoustic performance to a revolutionary ventilation system and innovative integrated technologies.

One core objective of the AMR is to promote a range of modern working methods, from collaborating and socialising to private or focused working.

Unlike traditional meeting rooms, the Optima AMR can be taken down, adapted, or relocated quickly and professionally to meet an organisation’s changing needs.

Completely demountable, these modular meeting rooms provide clients with a unique way to maximise the potential of their office space, fitting perfectly into the circular economy by indefinitely extending the structure's functionality.

Our unique “twist and lock” system enables you to fit rooms together to create your own inner office neighbourhoods. The Adaptable Meeting Room comes in a range of standard sizes, and customisation is available for each of the four walls. Choose from a selection of solid wall and frame finishes. 

An atrium is an ample open-air or skylight-covered space surrounded by a building. Atriums are utilised to provide light and ventilation to commercial interiors. Our specialist glazing services include bespoke Atrium Glazing and Firescreens, working closely with our suppliers, we ensure all installations are supported by certification, testing and calculations where required. Testing includes line loads, fire-rating and structural integrity using bespoke details.

 

W2W Specialist Works provide tailored solutions for architectural glass projects, from bespoke atriums to fire-rated doors and screens. Having worked on some of the most significant recent commercial new builds, we are happy to support clients at various stages of their projects. 

 

We provide initial cost planning assistance to help with first-stage project commercial viability, early design and detailing with architects and consultants to determine what can be achieved in terms of fire rating, line load limitations and aesthetics through to the complete design of the solution before the planning, procurement and management of the install.

Firescreens are glazed partitions that deliver high-performing solutions for modern office design's visual and practical demands. Optima’s fire screen product range is called “Technishield fire systems’’. 

 

Multiple products in this range provide 30 to 120 minutes of integrity and insulation as standard, based on the selected product. As part of our tailored project offerings, all products are thoroughly tested and certified, including line load rating and acoustics.
