Need help framing a long partition wall

I'm about to try framing out a 30' partition wall in my shop. I'm not sure of the best way to do this. Can I build it in 3 10' sections, or do I need to do it as one big section (probably a stupid question, but I'm not sure.) It will have a door in the middle of it, so I will need to frame that out also if that makes a difference.

This is a non load bearing wall.

I appreciate all advice.

Is the ceiling already on?

Can frame as 30' then lift with the use of homemade walljacks.

3 10' sections is ok too. a 16 and 14 is good.
can also nail on top and bottom plates then put in oner stud at a time and toe nail.

Thanks! The ceiling isn't up. The tresses are exposed still. I'll probably have to go in sections since I have a short bed truck and can't fit long sections.

Just wanted to make sure that it was ok structurally.

Thanks again.

Do the layout as if it were a continuous 30 foot wall--make the slpices in line with a stud---add an extra stud on the adjoining section.---when stood up---nail the two brother/sister studs together.

This will keep all stud spacing correct.
