I was delighted with the choice and quality of the product specified for St David's, and from a practical point of view, extremely impressed with the ease in which it has been maintained. The traffic within the first year has been phenomenal - you wouldn’t think so by looking at our washrooms.

The project.

In its first week of trading, more than one million shoppers visited the new extension to St David's Shopping Centre in Cardiff.

With more than 100,000 square metres of brand new retail space, the centre is home to many iconic brands including Apple, Hugo Boss, LK Bennett and Kurt Geiger.

Designed by Benoy, the development has rejuvenated the existing St David's Arcade and has created a new landmark retail centre in the heart of the city.


The challenge.

Venesta was approached by Benoy Architect, Maria Cannovina, who was looking for a contemporary, streamlined washroom solution to complement the Centre's modern aesthetic.

Durable toilet cubicles were required to withstand the demands of such a high footfall shopping centre. As well as toilet cubicles, St David's Shopping Centre also had a requirement for IPS (Vepps) and vanity units.

Equinox toilet cubicles feature a unique elliptical indicator bolt fascia plate design, as well as stylish curved pilasters.

The solution.

The Venesta team recommended Equinox toilet cubicles, not only for their looks but also its remarkable durability - an essential consideration in an environment with such heavy traffic.

With a choice of 34 on-trend laminate finishes for their cubicles, the client opted to specify their Equinox toilet cubicles in our clean, fresh and bright white laminate. This has helped create a modern, minimal and timeless washroom area.

To complement the Equinox toilet cubicles, St David's Shopping Centre also specified Vepps pre-plumbed panelling finished in the same white laminate. Vepps gave the centre a ground-breaking pre-plumbed washroom panelling system that's compatible with industry-leading sanitaryware. All pre-plumbed and tested at our factory, it made installation 50% faster than plain panel alternatives.

Not stopping there, our Quartz vanity units were specified too! Quartz's natural finish combines the high-class look and feel of natural Quartz with a resin composite for maximum durability. Able to withstand heavy-duty and regular cleaning, this was an ideal choice for the busy centre.

St David's Shopping Centre Quartz vanity units create a stunning visual impact in the new washrooms.
