Rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted since 2007, Belleville School in Battersea looks after 730 pupils, aged between 4 and 11. Housed in a classic Victorian building, the school is committed to providing a warm and friendly environment for children to learn and ensures its pupils feel safe, secure and stimulated.
Wilby and Burnett were charged with an extensive refit of the whole school. When it came to the refurbishment of the washrooms, the brief was to provide a toilet cubicle range that would answer the school’s need for a fun, safe and hygienic environment.
Timing was a key consideration on this project, with the refurbishment planned for the school holidays, meaning it had to be gutted and refitted in just six weeks.
The Venesta team was able to rise to the challenge and delivered Genesis toilet cubicles on time and ready to install. The fun and engaging design of Genesis along with the variety of height options made it the natural choice.
Genesis toilet cubicles are the recognised standard in primary or nursery schools. With younger children in mind, they have great safety features such as anti-finger trap hinges and emergency release indicator bolts.
Mr Grove also chose the fun-shaped doors to allow for adult supervision where it’s required, but with a height range through the building that ensures growing children are given their privacy.
With an emphasis on balancing robust hygiene standards with cost-saving, the toilet cubicles were specified in the smooth and totally waterproof Solid Grade Laminate (SGL). Time and money were saved on the WC and vanity units by utilising Vepps, our pioneering IPS system. The sanitaryware was pre-plumbed onto High Pressure Laminate (HPL) panels, tested in our factory and delivered to the site ready for accurate and speedy installation.
Everything was designed at a suitable height for small children, including the solid surface wash troughs complete with sensor taps - great for cleanliness and for saving unnecessary water usage when little ones might forget to turn the taps off.
The screen print doors in our ‘Fish’ design, with complementary bright colours, have become a bit of a talking point at the school. The washrooms are a clean, fun and uplifting environment, consistent with Belleview’s ‘Outstanding’ rating and their commitment to their pupils’ wellbeing beyond the classroom.
Our emergency release indicator bolts are featured as standard across our entire education range. Access our cubicles in an emergency without the need to remove the door or cause damage to the lock.
