With increasingly tight budgets and exceptionally high standards to maintain, it can be a challenge to strike the right balance of where to allocate precious funds. However, our education clients find that working with Focus Washrooms helps to simplify the process of washroom refurbishment as our expert team of specialists provide advice and guidance from at every step from concept to completion.
In this blog, we take a look at one of our recent education projects where we completed an innovative washroom refurbishment with stunning results which was completed on time and under budget for our delighted client.
The Oliver Goldsmith School in the Brent Cross area of London is a community school that caters for students of nursery age, up to Year 6. It is a vibrant and engaging place of learning where each member of staff is committed to providing excellence in all aspects of the children’s development.
The school approached Focus Washrooms with a requirement to refurbish their tired washrooms and bring them up to date with bright colours and the latest in school washroom design. They wanted the refurbishment to offer value for money whilst being more practical, low maintenance, hygienic, high quality and easy to keep clean.
The original space wasn’t being used effectively so we redesigned the areas to provide better efficiency and considered optimum user flow. Our team visually ‘split’ the one of the washrooms to distinguish between the Infants and Junior areas which were in the same room, by using contrasting colour schemes of patterned laminate products. The walls were clad with robust and easy to keep clean Trovex Diamond Hygienic Wall Protection that also offers bacteria-fighting qualities for ultimate hygiene. It was also decided to use Hygienic Wall Protection to make a vibrant feature wall above one of the wash troughs.
HYGIENE & EFFICIENCY
For the hand wash facilities, each area included vanity units at optimum heights for convenience for the pupils. Solid surface wash troughs, complete with sensor taps were installed for easy hand washing and for their water-saving benefits. The wash troughs are specially formed so that every area has a slight slope to ensure that water runs off, and is not left sitting on vanity tops to stagnate and grow bacteria. The finishing touches included unique laminate radiator covers that perfectly match the cubicle colour scheme and high-quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
Our client was delighted with the end result and commented on how smoothly the project ran – they even shared it on their official school website!
