For over a decade, Wimbledon Chase Primary School has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. With their students at the heart of all they do, the school prides itself on providing an inclusive environment for everyone.
Just like the boys washrooms in phase one of this project, the existing girls washrooms were dated and hard for the facilities team to maintain.
G Haslehurst Builders, Accredited Installers, were appointed to install durable new washroom systems, while meeting deadlines so the new facilities could open in good time.
Award toilet cubicles were specified for the school’s new girls washrooms. This was an ideal choice due to the safety features that come as standard, which include anti-tamper fixings, emergency release indicator bolts and anti-finger trap hinges.
The cubicles were specified in Solid Grade Laminate (SGL), a heat, scratch, impact and water resistant material, so the new cubicles can withstand heavy usage.
An inviting, bright and fun space has been created by choosing our ‘Papaya’, ‘Golden’, Lime’ and ‘Teal’ finishes for Award’s cubicle doors, while ‘Gunmetal’ pilasters and partitions complement the modern décor of the room.
The school specified our industry-leading pre-plumbed panelling system, Vepps, which halved installation time. SanCeram Chartham WCs were pre-plumbed to SGL Vepps panels and rigorously tested at our manufacturing facility. For student and staff safety, anti-tamper locks and flush panels conceal duct space, while 90° linear bearing hinges allow for easy access to duct space, making ongoing maintenance quick, easy and safe.
SGL vanities were chosen due to their durable and waterproof properties, meaning cleaning regimes won’t compromise the quality of the material. Pre-plumbed and tested at our factory, the school’s vanity units featured SanCeram semi-recessed basins and self-closing taps.
As flowing water is automatically shut off after use, self closing taps not only reduce the risk of potential flooding, but also reduced the amount of water wastage.
We’re happy to learn that the students are thrilled with their new washroom facilities, and that it’s now a space they welcome using during their school days.
