2016 was an outstanding year for Interfix. Our projects have not only covered a diverse range of sectors they have also highlighted the importance of bespoke planning and design in achieving the very highest standards. At Interfix we pride ourselves on treating each project individually from the initial client briefs to the design and installation.
As a celebration of the work we have done over the past year we have looked back at three very different projects. Each project came with its own requirements and restrictions which influenced both the planning and design of the washrooms, ensuring that we created a washroom facility that exceeded expectations.
Earlier last year the Priory Shopping Centre underwent a rebranding to try and improve its image and appearance as well as increase the number of visitors to the centre. As part of this rebranding we refurbished the gents, ladies and disabled washrooms. We completed the work while the centre was live to ensure there was no disruption to businesses. This entailed detailed planning to ensure the public space close to the workplace remained health and safety compliant.
In 2016 we also refurbished the washrooms at global advertising agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty. Similar to Dover Priory we were once again refurbishing washrooms in a live environment. One of the phases of this project took part close to a busy internal café. This meant we had to keep noise and dust to an absolute minimal as well as having limited onsite storage.
We refurbished several school washrooms last year. However the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham College in south London is the stand out schools project of 2016. Prior to the washroom transformation the school was experiencing anti-social behaviour taking place in the washrooms caused by poor up keep and damaged cubicles and fitments. During the eight week project we revitalised the run down washrooms and created a safer space for students by designing and installing communal toilet areas without doors. Vandalism was reduced by the specification of robust, stainless steel washthrough units.
We are looking forward to transforming even more washroom areas in 2017 with this year already looking set to allow us to build on the success of 2016.
