It goes without saying that the way we work – and play – has changed a lot over the years. When it comes to arranging our homes, offices and workplaces, no matter what we may do, the concept of secluding ourselves away through stuffy cubicles and partitions is falling far behind. In today’s working world, the word on the street is glass – glass partitions not only help to increase natural light, but they also help to increase visibility and bring us together. You’ll largely find glass being used on a partition and walling basis on a residential basis, too. Read More
A change is as good as a rest – especially when you may be shifting your business focus, or are looking to try and revitalise your company morale. There are good times and less convenient times, however, when it may be best for your office refurbishment to take place.

They always say that you can tell everything you need to know about a person simply by looking at them. The same, to an extent, can be said about offices and work spaces – outsiders such as potential clients and employees will judge your working environment majorly on the way it is presented. You may have an impeccable record or an admirable culture – but unless you let these shine through your design choices, you could be left scrabbling around for positive noise. From office space choices to breaking elements down such as dusty old office partitions, there are plenty of steps for you to take.
More and more office spaces are opting for a contemporary look that is not only great on the eye, but is also resilient, fire-proof and built to weather the years, too. The standardised cubicles and partitions of old which may have worked for small office fit-outs in the past are now not only considered clunky or even choking to workers, but may not even be considered safe or fit for purpose. Contractors and office interior designers agree that the way forward, no matter what the enterprise may be and no matter what the material may be used for, is glass. Glass partitions are fast becoming commonplace in office workspaces of all shapes and sizes – and it’s not hard to understand why. Read More
Anyone who has spent time in an office in the past few years may already have spotted a huge trend towards removing the stuffy cubicles of old. Contact centres largely operate on a round table basis now, and those offices which do require segregation do so on a basis that still allows for transparency and flexibility. While some offices opt for modular furniture, walls and more, you can do no wrong by considering the benefits of glass as part of your office design – and in tandem with effective lighting, you can create offices that thrive on expansive space and increased transparency. Have you considered glass partitions as part of an upcoming refurbishment? Read More
From single glazed frameless glass office partitions to simple, moveable walls that can be constructed and allocated as you wish, there really is much to be said for modern office partitions.

At GXI, we believe in quality partitions – from glass partitions to flexible, modular units – and we are therefore proud to offer expert consultation on London office refurbishment from firm to firm.

The modern office looks fairly different to the stuffy workspaces of old – gone are the days of having to trudge into choked cubicles and cornered-off workspaces that inspire little other than low morale and poor productivity – contemporary office design is all about bringing everything out into the open, and the use of office partitions – particularly in the form of glass partition walls – is becoming increasingly popular in office spaces and contact centres alike. But why are glass partitions becoming so popular, and how can they benefit your workspace? Read More
Anyone on the outside of an office environment may already have a fairly stereotypical view of what a corporate office should look like – the word alone conjures up images of stuffy, closed-off environments and cubicle systems, with office partitions clogging up space to breath and work. However, as anyone working with office partitions London and elsewhere will tell you, things have changed in terms of the way that partitions and walls are approached with regard to office design. Glass partitions, walls and otherwise are treated with a view to offering workforces more space to be productive, creative and happy in their office environments. Read More

Office space is essential – it is not only crucial to your staff and colleagues, but it is also an integral part of your processes. Too little space provides for little efficiency; and can also mean less room to implement new features, departments or even staff, whereas too much space can appear wasteful – and can even be less cost-effective in terms of energy consumption. Getting the right amount of space for both your business needs and your employees’ needs is a fine balance that can only be tackled by experts in interior workspace design. Methods such as going open-plan or installing glass partition walls are amongst the most popular, however, we understand that each operation is a little different. Read More
Offices and their designs have changed across the years – and not necessarily recently – and gone are the days of operations being stuffy, poorly-ventilated and difficult to manoeuvre – modern offices, on the whole, should emphasise space, comfort and many do. A good business in 2016 cares for its employees as much as its operation and its turnover, and a happy employee is, on the whole, a productive and satisfied employee – meaning that morale should be at the top of the bill. glass partitions are infamous for providing blocks across the country some of their most notorious stereotypes – that they create crowded, stuffy cubicle areas which fail to inspire a healthy work ethic. There is, however, an alternative which is proving to be extremely popular in modern operations.
Did you know that office partitions have more benefits than just creating a contemporary office design? A recent study showed that glass partitions can have a positive effect on employees’ health.
