You can't if front of the tub is removable for faucet repairs.

And you know this, how? Didn't see the make/model of the tub posted... Or are you just assuming?

From what little is revealed in the picture it looks like the apron might not be removable anyway. Can't tell, but a make/model of the tub would certainly help clarify that.

Kind of looks like the wrong kind of tub to have use that setup anyway. There's a wall right there, why wasn't that used? Short as that tub appears it's really a poor choice to have wasted the space for that. Regardless, getting to the hardware would probably require going in through what looks like and adjacent closet. Assuming the apron isn't removable. If it is, you're dead right, putting a wall up there would make it that much more complicated to attempt any future maintenance and repairs (like from leaks from this 'wall' idea).

You can install the wall, if you cut the access to faucets and make the face tile removable. Tile can be drilled and installed with screws. Joints can be grouted, but lightly. Sorry, forgot about this way.

Thought I was finished, but to add, movable tile (even if 12x12) would make later plumbing difficult for want of a access. At least, I would take the plumbing apart and coat the fasteners with grease or silicon paste so they don't corrode.

This can work if the wall is build 16th or 1/8th off the tub and supported from bottom, left & right side well. 1/4" cbu and redgaurd then tile.

All hardware shown is serviceable from the top-side. No reason not to box it in if that's what they want to do.

You never NEVER use 1/4" cement board on studs.

Again, and without the make/model info you know this HOW?

Sure, it may well be serviceable. Or it might only look like one you barely remember having worked on once, maybe.

But since it's not your house you've got nothing to lose being wrong. Meanwhile other folks are suggesting caution and making informed decisions. Is it you depend on customers NOT making smart choices?

The OP asked about building a small wall next to his tub. That's all. And it's definitely possible and not all that complicated.

The plumbing might be accessed from the wall that is at the end of the tub. Who knows?

So perhaps the best advice here is - build the wall if you'd like, but make sure you have a way to get to the plumbing for repair/replacement.
