The project.

Bullers Wood School in Chislehurst, Kent is a comprehensive girls’ school and mixed sixth form providing an exciting and holistic education based on a warm, friendly ethos and traditional values. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, the secondary school offers its Year 7-13 students rich opportunities and onsite facilities to match.

The challenge.

In order to provide students with the best facilities, the school undertook refurbishment works which included washroom renovations. The school wanted to install modern and hygienic solutions as the existing washrooms were dated, uninviting and hard to maintain.

Toilets have been long a hotspot for anti-social behaviour and bullying in schools and research from The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine suggests 40% of girls don’t visit school toilets. With this in mind, the school wanted to increase privacy levels so the toilets were a safe, inviting space. We worked with Accredited Installers T-IPS and Kier Construction to specify hardwearing cubicles that would guarantee privacy, along with complimentary washroom systems.

The solution.

Bullers Wood School specified Titan, our full height privacy toilet cubicles. The cubicles boast floor to ceiling doors, pilasters and partitions with a 5mm floor clearance, guaranteeing maximum privacy for students. Titan cubicles allow staff to passively monitor the toilet areas without compromising pupils’ privacy.

As well as offering privacy, Titan’s rigid wall and floor channels, aluminium headrails and unique aluminium shoes that are fitted to the floor make the cubicle range substantial and stable. Specified in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL), the cubicles are water, heat, impact and scratch resistant so will withstand the demands of these busy secondary school washrooms.

Vepps was specified for the washrooms, which meant the WCs and dual flush plates were pre-plumbed and tested at our manufacturing facility. This allowed for 50% faster installation compared to plain panel alternatives, as well as added peace of mind. Our tried and tested pre-plumbed panelling system Vepps is proven to be more cost effective over a project lifecycle, making it an ideal washroom panelling system for schools, where a close eye is kept on budgets. It also offers easier ongoing maintenance thanks to the 90° linear-bearing hinged and lockable access panels to concealed duct space.

The secondary school designed their new washrooms in a contemporary colour scheme, selecting our dark grey ‘Gunmetal’ and light grey ‘Cloud’ finishes.

Our popular Solid Surface washtroughs were specified for the hand washing stations. The troughs, manufactured in our ‘Everest’ finish, with underpanels to match the other washroom systems, are strong, smooth and boast a seamless finish. The washtroughs are manufactured out of a low maintenance non-porous material with impact and thermal shock resistance, so will stand the test of time in the busy school toilets.
