JEB and Geyer – kicking goals with Westpac

JEB Australia’s office partitions specialists have recently completed a complex project for Westpac’s Perth office; in collaboration with design firm Geyer.

The Westpac Perth office project saw Geyer handling the design and turning to the experts at JEB for partitions and sound control – and the resulting custom acoustic partition system is a perfect mix of sound design practicalities, and aesthetic charm.

In the planning phase of this project, Geyer was looking to ensure that the installed partitions would provide a high acoustic performance to cater the everyday noise demands of a modern office environment like Westpac’s. These demands differ team-to-team and therefore room-to-room, so between JEB and Geyer a plan was developed to cater various specifications to suit the acoustic requirement of each room, while ensuring spending per room is optimised.

It was JEB’s X-Series’ single and double-glazed partitions that suited the job in the end, combined with PLUS’ double-glazed door leaves and acoustic Summit sliding doors. The components were installed with a decorative Anodised Champagne finish. To ease the stress of securing conference rooms, the X-Series partition includes a custom-mounting panel for a specialised room-booking system.

For the front-of-house meeting room, Geyer specified JEB’s Integra operable walls, offering JEB the opportunity to employ a series of switchable glass panels. Wrapped in fabric and specifically chosen for Westpac, the walls are finished with double-glazed and switchable glass panels installed.

For JEB, working with Geyer was a smooth and a simple process, with the high-level communication between JEB and Geyer throughout the project making detailing variants and complexes easy, and the result, a clear success.
