MaxiBeam System at Castle Park vtec

With workspace designs constantly shifting and evolving, the need for inviting and inspiring spaces for people to work in is still important and prevalent as ever! Here are a few unique ways you can truly transform workspace areas to a stunning effect.

You know how important the atmosphere of a space is. At Vtec you will find that we not only offer exceptional wall panels and acoustic systems, but also deliver an enhanced environment and experience for occupiers.

How can you transform spaces that leave a lasting impact?


1. Flexible workspaces

More and more offices are being designed with open plan concepts that utilise space, natural lighting and the removal of traditional cubicle style spaces. Instead spaces can be built around multi functional open desks, that inspire collaboration and team work. The psychology behind it, is that it encourages a better workspace experience for employees who shift during their 5 day work week from home to office.



A leading high-tec company expanded its office premises. With abundant natural light and lakeside landscapes, it was important to keep the space light and airy. The MaxiBeam System in Light wood Laminate finish was used for suspended acoustic rafts, suspended hexagons and feature walls. These elements allowed occupiers to connect with freedom of movement and space whilst also being dynamic and fun.



2. The prioritisation of workplace well being

You know that more and more, every one of us is prioritising our mental health and emotional bandwidth. Architects, Designers and Contractors are all poised with the task to develop positive atmosphere spaces with a sense of cosiness that employees often feel when they work from home. Natural features and biophilic touches work well to quickly transform a space to be warm and welcoming. You will find that we also provide textured decorative systems like Cork, Timber, and Moss that are considerate in their emotive effect.



A fun interior design company, needed help in creating the right atmosphere for their new showroom. Arctic Moss was chosen not just for it’s natural acoustic elements, but also to create a vibrant and natural connection for occupants and nature. This offered high sensory appeal with zero maintenance.


3. Quiet Spaces

Acoustics plays a vital part of an occupants well being by reducing unwanted noise. There are a myriad of benefits to sound absorption. Some of them are increased productivity and a reduction in stress levels. When a client comes to us asking for help in creating acoustic comfort in a space, depending on the project, we offer both modular and bespoke solutions.



Our client wanted a high quality finish with a creatively designed acoustic ceilings for an office re-design. Supacoustic panels in oak Supalami finish with circular perforated design was used in the kitchen area and stairways. This space connected to the office area, hence the need to soften the acoustics.


4. Cosy Office Spaces

Have you seen the uptick in clients wanting softer specs in office fit outs? Blurring work and home interiors, delivers on intimacy and warmth.



Our innovative and environmentally conscious client wanted a more adaptable workspace for their employees. The design team created a fluid space that was supported by textures and semi permanent partitions for zoning. Our large scale wall panel systems in London Brick were used as a backdrop to complement the soft furnishings as well as act as a mobile partition wall. The texture of the London Brick helped to create a soothing atmosphere in an open space. Due to how rapidly these panels can be applied, they were installed whilst the building was occupied.


5. Sustainable Materials

Employees value more than ever before occupying spaces and working in environments that treat the earth kinder and help preserve the planet. Whilst there are many small and important ways a workspace can be sustainable, what about the materials that are used for the interiors?

We recognise the value of sourcing responsibly and do our utmost to follow sustainable practices as far as possible in the manufacturing process. Some of our Slats, Beams and Acoustic Systems are FSC® certified (FSC® C160047) and PEFC™ certified (INT-PEFC/COC-002119). To learn more, we’ve written a whole blog post all about our Sustainability and Manufacturing process.


6. Bright and Bold Colours

Our client chose the MaxiBeam System for a workspace break-out area as a featured ceiling in this relaxing and refuelling interior. They were also bespoke spray-painted in a specific red finish to match the clients corporate colours, creating a dramatic effect in an informal space.
