Washrooms at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College
Washroom design and installation experts, Interfix, supplied the sanitary fixtures and fittings to create a safe, pristine rest room environment for college students.
The washrooms at Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College in south London had become dilapidated over time due to cubicles and fitments being damaged. The areas’ poor upkeep led to an increase in anti-social behaviour; hence the school contacted Interfix to carry out a much-needed refurbishment of multiple washroom areas.
With a well-earned reputation for creating and installing innovative washrooms, Interfix was specified by the college to achieve communal toilet blocks which opened directly onto corridors. The areas were to be devised without doors in order to create a more open, convivial environment and deter vandalism which had taken place in previously enclosed facilities.
As well as offering the best in design, Interfix places great emphasis on the functionality and sustainability of its washrooms to maintain usability, ease of maintenance and cleaning in order to uphold a desirable atmosphere. Interfix’s installation engineers carried out the simultaneous, multi-washroom refurbishment during non-term time.
Solid grade laminate cubicles and duct panels were installed throughout the multiple washroom areas. To deter vandalism, robust, stainless steel washtrough units were also installed; with solid grade laminate under panels affixed to the fronts. As part of its bespoke design and installation service, Interfix also made the required alterations to supply and drainage pipework.
By providing the students with stylish, hygienic and well-designed areas the washrooms will serve a vital purpose for many years to come.
