Our September Chapter Meeting is presented by APG Office Furnishings and Herman Miller. The Chapter Meeting will run from 11:30 AM to 1 PM on Thursday, September 12, 2019 at the University of Memphis Holiday Inn Medallion Room.
The family of Herman Miller brand includes, Maars Living Walls from the Netherlands, the world’s premier manufacture of engineered walls. Maars has been manufacturing wall systems since 1966 and have a presence in over 65 countries. Like Herman Miller, Maars is a leading innovator in Engineered Walls, Maars is known for their minimalistic aesthetic and acoustic performance.
Why use Maars Living Walls, and when specifying which CSI Section is best, 102219 or 134273?
In this discussion we will review:
1. Maars – History and product capabilities
2. Acoustic Criteria and Performance
3. Section 10 22 19 DEMOUNTABLE PARTITIONS
Demountable Partitions are architectural wall systems that can be unmounted, relocated, and reinstalled at a new location. Movable wall is just another name for demountable wall. Sometimes they are also called demountable partitions. There are two main types of demountable walls: modular and unitized. Modular wall systems usually come in pieces and need to be assembled on site. These types of walls can require more labor and coordination from a logistical stand point. Unitized walls arrive on site as a unit assembly and typically install very quickly and can be easily reconfigured using less labor.
Section includes fixed butt joint or framed demountable glass or solid panel partitions with doors.
A Site-assembled demountable partitions.
B Unitized-panel demountable partitions.
4. SECTION 134273 - INTEGRATED INTERIOR ASSEMBLIES
Integrated Prefabricated Interior Construction: A construction process that includes an integrated “design assist” approach to design by using a software that allows for the designing, pricing, engineering and manufacturing of the assemblies and integration of other’s components for a prefabricated construction method for the interior construction of a facility. The entity has the ability to use prefabricated method of construction, i.e. offsite construction, using software for the manufacturing of the assemblies. Through the use of parametric design, framing assemblies have the ability to embed different AV components while also allowing for the integration of the following but not limited to: Electrical and networking solutions, and millwork.
