The market for unique, modern design elements is evolving. And demand has increased substantially in recent years. Not only do customers want high quality commercial products, they also need them to be readily available without the need for specialist installation.

Construction delays are an all too common occurrence. Regardless of where they occur in the chain – during planning, sourcing, delivery or installation – delays will invariably lead to cost blow outs and disruption of the subsequent schedule.

If renovations on a commercial space are delayed by four weeks, for example, not only are you paying for the additional labour costs for that time, but also the month of revenue lost when the space could have been in operation.

When project costs can compound so rapidly, it makes sense to streamline the process as much as possible without comprising on the quality of the end product.

The results of the 2011 SmartMarket Report indicated that the majority of projects using modularisation and prefabricated elements saw substantial lowering of overall costs, site waste and completion time.

While the figures tend to refer to larger scale projects or entirely modular structures, the same premise applies to interior design elements.

The quality and variety of modern prefabricated designs means the quality is indistinguishable from that of bespoke items. Additionally, modular elements are more easily adjusted or repaired as individual panels can be simply removed and replaced without overhauling the entire area.

Screenwood provide the ideal balance of aesthetics and convenience with their acoustically-rated modular timber panels. Their products are preassembled and factory finished, ready for installation as soon as they arrive onsite.

Specifiers can pick from a range of profiles, coatings and certified timbers tailored to their individual needs. Every item is made to order.
