Pieleanu with Acentech, a U.S. Audio Visual and Sound System consulting and design firm.  As a space planner and Inscape Walls dealer, one of the biggest issues facing our clients is is providing the needed balance between Time & Flexibility with expansion and contraction of modern offices.  Demountable walls provide for both.  However, the misconceptions and concerns about demountable glass walls (usually relating to poor acoustics) are unfounded with today'...
