Holiday Inn Glass Balustrade Installation Thu, 26 Mar 2015 11:56:25 +0000 Summary

Customer: Holiday Inn
Type of Project: Glass Balustrade Installations
Location: Nuneaton

Holiday Inn contacted us about getting some glass balustrading installed to segregate the dining area from the seating area in their Nuneaton hotel.


Getting Started

To prep the site our team ensured all the areas were clean and clear of any obstructions which could inhibit installation. The area had been measured previously before work commenced so the balustrading could be constructed to suit the site dimensions.


To ensure correct positioning, firstly each of the uprights were moved into position and the hole positions marked out before drilling the holes to fix in place on the timber within the opening. When moving the uprights into place a spirit level was used to ensure correct angles and no slants.


Glass Installation

Glass was installed between the uprights and secured in place using stainless steel glass clamps. A stainless steel top rail was then attached to the uprights and fixed to the columns at either end to ensure stability.


The End Result

The project took just 1 day with 2 men, the result was leaving Holiday Inn with a dividing wall and balustrading between their seating and dining area.

Ashlawn School Flooring and Suspended Ceiling Installation Tue, 20 Jan 2015 09:43:33 +0000 Summary

Customer: Ashlawn School
Type of Project: Vinyl Flooring Installation, Suspended Ceiling, & Carpet tiling
Location: Rugby
Date: Dec 2014

Having previously carried out a flooring refurbishment for Ashlawn School in Rugby, DJR were asked to come back in to carry out some further work comprising of; installation of vinyl flooring and a suspended ceiling in the corridor, and carpet tiles and a suspended ceiling installation in 5 classrooms.


Suspended Ceiling

With this project we were asked to install a suspended ceiling in both the corridor area of the school as well as the classrooms.

To begin with we set out the benchmarks in line with the design/layout drawings and then checked the ceiling module layout for inconsistencies. Next we had to check that the finished ceiling height was established, taking into account any existing installed services and checking the relative height of the ceiling.

Once the initial prep was complete we then began setting out the ceiling using string lines, with focus on establishing square reference lines along with the setting up of perimeter detail.

Structural soffit fixings were then positioned with hangers attached to the fixings and levelled.

Finally we installed the ceiling grid and panels.


Carpet Tile Installation

Carpet tiling was chosen as flooring in the classroom areas.

To prep for the carpet tile installation we began by removing the existing flooring and ensuring the sub-floor was prepped ready for the carpet tile. This included cleaning and levelling the floor area and ensuring it was free from contaminants which could affect bonding.

The areas were then coated with a tackifier and allowed to dry before tiles being fitted.


Vinyl Flooring

In addition to the suspended ceiling we were also asked to install vinyl flooring in the corridor area.

Once again to prep for the vinyl we removed all existing flooring materials ensuring the area was completely cleared . We then levelled the corridor area using latex to ensure a flat surface.

Using adhesive, we then adhered the chosen vinyl to the primed floor,  ensuring  joints between sheets were welded for a smooth finish.


The End Result

Each of the 5 classrooms took 1.5 days for suspended ceiling installation and 1 day per room for carpet tiling. The suspended ceiling installation then took 3 days for the corridor and 3 days for vinyl installation.

The total project had an 8 man team with 4 working on the suspended ceilings and 4 men on flooring.

The end result left Ashlawn School with a brand new, shining vinyl corridor, 5 new carpeted classrooms and suspended ceilings in both the corridor and classrooms great for their need for durability.

Rise above the Rest with Mezzanine Flooring Solutions Thu, 27 Nov 2014 12:32:16 +0000 What is a mezzanine floor?

Mezzanine floors involve the installation of an extra floor or raised platform between your ground floor and upper floor/ceiling, much like a balcony.

In terms of mezzanine floor on offer here at DJR we use Revlok mezzanine floors which require no nuts and bolts to install instead using an interlocking system. which provides both reliability and strength in its construction.


What can a mezzanine floor offer your business?

• Space
The whole purpose of a mezzanine floor is to allow the extension of space within the existing area without much disruption by making use of unused headspace.


• Cost Effective
Mezzanine Flooring is ideal if you require more space to work but cannot afford to move premises, or pay to extend your area. instead the floor is installed within your existing space and can create up to double the workspace you already hold but at a marginal cost.

As well as this many mezzanine floors are flexible enough to be reinstalled in new premises if you ever do decide to move.

What can a mezzanine floor be used for?

Mezzanine floors tend to have two main uses, either employed separately or as a combination depending upon your business requirements and desired efficiency.

• Storage
Warehouses in particular tend to make use of mezzanine floors to provide additional storage space. These storage space look to make use of space from floor to ceiling rather than single level storage. Often warehouses have high ceilings so mezzanine flooring is the best way to utilise this space. As well as this as they are installed as platforms there remains space under your mezzanine for additional storage.

• Offices
As well as storage mezzanine flooring can allow the space for additional offices which can overlook the existing work area. This can help you to facilitate more staff without incurring additional costs.


How much will mezzanine flooring cost ?

Norland Managed Services Moveable Walls Servicing Wed, 22 Oct 2014 08:21:31 +0000  


Customer: Norland Managed Services
Type of project: Moveable wall servicing
Location: NEC Birmingham


The work carried out on a moveable wall doesn’t just end at the installation. In order to comply with Health and Safety Regulations a regular check/service of the partitions should take place. Not only does this ensure the partitions are working correctly and repairs can be made but it also lengthens the lifespan of your moveable walls.


Recently here at DJR we completed the service of 54 moveable walls for Norland Managed Services at NEC Birmingham as part of the health and safety requirements. The total service was carried out across the whole site, took 5 days and required 2 team members.


Moveable walls are made up of a lot of different parts which go together to create a smooth sliding partition. Over time these parts can become subjected to wear and tear, servicing is about identifying any wear and tear that is occuring, whether day to day damage which can be repaired or more substantial damage which requires replacement.

To carry out a service, a Maintenance/Service & inspection Compliance Sheet is completed for the clients records. This record breaks down the servicing process into sections:

• Tracks and Carriers:
Moveable walls run along a track when extended. A big part of the service, involves ensuring that the tracks & carriers)are clear, lubricated and aligned. Each part of the track is also checked for any damage or faults. This all goes together to ensure the panels can smoothly run out.

• Acoustic Wall Panels:
Checking the panels involves ensuring posts and fixings are level, assessing seals & panels for wear and tear and testing the system.

• Final Inspection:
Finally we demonstrate the system to show any problems were resolved and sign any log books where necessary.


If you would like to arrange a service of your moveable walls or partition systems, please contact us via our online form. Alternatively you can find out more about the services we have to offer in our partitioning section.

Jaguar Landrover Steel Partition Installation Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:31:02 +0000 Summary

Customer: Jaguar Landrover
Type of Project: Steel partition Installation
Location: Halewood, Liverpool
Date: June 2014


Jaguar Land Rover contacted us to dismantle their existing offices inside the factory to replace them with three separate rooms; a control/computer area, dirty room and a clean room which needed to accommodate a new vertical carousel.


The previous offices were too small to accommodate Jaguars needs due to the original layout.

Getting Started

We began the project by dismantling the existing offices.


Steel partitioning effectively works like a Meccano set so dismantling involved removing the skirting which hid the wireways, disconnecting the spring clip joints, cover channels and cleats to remove the steel panels.


We then began installing the steel partitioning which involved setting out, to ensure the layout was in line with Jaguars new room requirements, installing the ceiling and floor track for the panels, installing the panels along with wireway connections and finishing off with trims to cover wireways.

The End Result:

The project was completed on schedule lasting one day with a total of 4 in our team to complete the task.


As you can see Jaguar were left with a new aesthetically pleasing office including new room segmentation to make the best use of the space available.
